Innovative computer model to optimise freight traffic

  • December 6, 2019

VUB scientist Tomas Ambra developed a new computer model that maps the currently fragmented freight transport process in real time and proposes better solutions using information such as weather forecasts and congestion.

“The model can help to better coordinate the different modes of rail, water and road transport, which in turn leads to a higher level of safety, less congestion and a smaller ecological footprint”.

For this research, Tomas Ambra was awarded an FWO Strategic Basic Research grant, and his model plays a crucial role in the new interuniversity DISpATch project.
