Research projects

Check out the international projects we are part of

InPercept
2021 – 2023
Transport & Mobility

InPercept

InPercept aims to develop enabling technologies that allow autonomous vehicles to operate with higher levels of efficiency and safety. These technologies will help the vehicles to detect obstacles and adverse conditions and to react accordingly.

SHAPEMOV
2021 - 2023
Transport & Mobility

SHAPEMOV

The overall objective of SHAPEMOV is to develop a simulation platform for shared mobility systems to support operators and authorities in their decision-making processes. The project aims to facilitate the planning and management of these services, as well as the design of regulatory frameworks by the competent authorities.

AVENUE

AVENUE

AVENUE is an AI4Cities project that proposes to develop an AI-based decision support tool for designing and monitoring shared mobility regulatory frameworks oriented towards the reduction of GHG emissions.

AICHAIN
2020 - 2022
Aviation

AICHAIN

AICHAIN looks for enhancing ATM systems by articulating an advanced privacy-preserving federated learning architecture in which neither the training data nor the training model need to be exposed. This will be possible thanks to the combination of two emerging technologies: FedML and Blockchain technologies.

MOMENTUM

MOMENTUM

MOMENTUM aims at developing a set of new data analysis methods, transport models and planning support tools to capture the impact of new transport options on the urban mobility ecosystem, in order to support cities in the task of designing the right policy mix to exploit the full potential of these emerging mobility solutions.

BD4PT
2019 - 2021
Transport & Mobility

BD4PT

Big Data for Public Transport aims to develop a new technology able to process data collected from smart payment systems and combine it with other data sources in order to analyse travel behaviour, generate mobility indicators and assist public transport authorities and operators in the planning of public transport systems.

BigData4ATM
2016 - 2018
Aviation

BigData4ATM

BigData4ATM is a research project within SESAR 2020 Exploratory Research which aims to investigate how new sources of passenger-centric data coming from smart personal devices can be analysed to extract relevant information about passengers’ behaviour and how this information can be used to inform ATM decision making processes.

ACCESS
2013 - 2015
Aviation

ACCESS

ACCESS was a project within SESAR WPE Long Term and Innovative Research which addressed airport slot allocation from the perspective of complex adaptive systems. The project developed an agent-based model of the air transport network that was used to evaluate different designs of market-based mechanisms for airport slot allocation.

INTUIT
2016 - 2018
Aviation

INTUIT

INTUIT explored the potential of a variety of visual analytics and machine learning techniques to improve our understanding of the trade-offs between Air Traffic Management KPAs, identify cause-effect relationships between performance drivers and performance indicators at different scales, and develop new decision support tools for ATM performance monitoring and management.

INSIGHT

INSIGHT

INSIGHT aims to investigate how ICT, with particular focus on data science and complexity theory, can help European cities formulate and evaluate policies to stimulate a balanced economic recovery and a sustainable urban development.

EUNOIA

EUNOIA

EUNOIA is a research project funded under the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme. EUNOIA sought to take advantage of the opportunities brought by smart city technologies and the most recent advances in complex systems science to develop new urban models and ICT tools empowering city governments and their citizens to design better mobility policies.

TRANSIT

TRANSIT

TRANSIT looks for developing a set of multimodal KPIs, mobility data analysis methods and transport simulation tools allowing the evaluation of the impact of a set of innovative intermodal transport solutions on the quality, efficiency and resilience of the door-to-door passenger journey.
