ESR12 – Freight transport model with autonomous inland shipping application and environmental externalities

Host institution: UHAM (DE)
Project title/WP: Freight transport model with autonomous inland shipping application and environmental externalities (WP3)
Supervisory board: Prof. Q. Liu (UHAM, DE), Prof. G. Solvoll (NORD), Prof. T.A. Mathisen (NORD, NO), T. Brauner (LIH, DE)
Objectives:

  • Multimodal freight network model, focusing on inland waterways with new technology like autonomous inland shipping
  • Measure the impact of environmental externalities and behavioral interactions on economic performances of autonomous inland shipping

Expected Results:

  • Behavior interactions derived from stated choice experiments and surveys
  • Multimodal freight network model that is calibrated with real business cases with autonomous inland shipping technology and environmental externalities

Planned secondment(s):

  • LIH (DE): Conducting case studies using surveys and real business information (M12-14, secondment mentor: T. Brauner) (joint secondment with ESR11)
  • CUT (SE): Analyzing behavioral interactions in the application of autonomous inland shipping (M20-22, secondment mentor: S. MacKinnon)

Enrolment in the Doctoral degree: UHAM (DE)
