A Neural Network Approach to Airport Management
An adaptive method for Performance Based Airport Management using a Neural Network for evaluation of the change of KPIs and appropriate action is presented. A first implementation of this concept covers the control of border control checkpoints which are crucial for airports serving as a hub. The Neural Network used is trained by an Evolutionary Algorithm maximizing the KPI “boarding quota”.
Eventbasiertes Netzwerkmodell zur Passagierprognose
Um die in den Projekten TAMS und FAMOUS erlangte Prognosefähigkeit weiter auszubauen, findet in dem Projekt Optimode die Weiterentwicklung von der System Dynamics Simulation zum eventbasierten Netzwerkmodell statt. Im Gegensatz zum SD-Modell können so jedem Objekt in der Simulation individuelle Eigenschaften und Attribute zugeordnet werden.
Flughafen Monitoring mit dem pax_radar
Das pax_radar wurde als eigenes Darstellungskonzept entworfen um viele Informationen in einem kompakten Layout darzustellen und befindet sich in einer kontinuierlichen Weiterentwicklung. Das pax_radar bietet eine komprimierte und innovative Darstellung des aktuellen landseitigen Status der Flüge am Flughafen.
Aeronautic Study on Seamless Transport
ASSET is a project within the Seventh European Framework Programme whose multinational consortium is coordinated by the German Aerospace Centre. Against the background of insufficient punctuality of the European air transport system which is mainly resulting from the high variance in offblock times, entailing poor predictability and costly time buffers, ASSET aims at the development of integrated solution scenarios for the optimisation of airport ground processes, comprising passenger-, baggage- and aircraft turnaround processes.
Efficiency Analysis for the Security Area
A current survey by SITA (Societe Internationale de Telecommunication Aeronautique) confirms the increasing importance of self-service checkin. For the passengers, this represents an enhancement of comfort and flexibility regarding their arrival at the airport, because waiting times at the checkin counter are eliminated. For airport operators, on the other hand, the question arrises what impact the different arrival behavior of passengers has on the efficiency in the security area.
Chaos at the Airport?
Delays, cancellations, endless waiting - such situations are often described in the media as being chaotic. But are they really chaos? This question was first examined within the scope of a doctoral thesis in the virtual institute, a cooperation between DLR and RWTH Aachen.
FAMOUS – Future Airport Management Operating Utility System
The main task of modern terminal management is structuring efficient, prompt and customer-oriented handling processes on the ground.
Project „Efficient Airport 2030“
The objective of the project “Efficient Airport 2030” is the development of different forecast scenarios of the airport Hamburg and its simulation. The scenarios include future process and technology approaches for improved ground processes to increase performance. The Institute of Airport Transport and Airport Research developed a method for modeling how passengers find their path throughout an airport with and without indoor navigation system. Furthermore, the resulting potential time savings for the passengers as well as the monetary benefits for the airport using time values are derived.
Macroscopic Simulation of Passenger Flows in the Terminal
For the landside examination of airports, a system dynamics model is being developed within the project FAMOUS as passenger simulation for the detection and possible elimination of shortages.
Next Generation Train (NGT)
In the scope of the inter-institutional designed DLR-project NGT DLR-scientists research for an innovative, more efficient, safe and more economic high speed train.
SPADE: Supporting Platform for Airport Decision-making and Efficiency analysis
The airports as central hubs of air traffic flows frequently turn into needle eyes. Main reasons are lacking capacity and low efficiency. The airport efficiency can only be improved when decision processes are agreed upon in a faster way and can be processed more soundly between respectively by airport actors and policy decision makers.
TIVA II - Technology Integration for the Virtual Aircraft
In order to boost the DLR competence as to the integrated evaluation of overall aircraft configurations, the project „Technology Integration for the Virtual Aircraft“ (TIVA) has been founded.
Traffic Oriented Microscopic Simulator
TOMICS is a simulation software for modelling individual passenger movements in the traffic space. Emphasis is put on modelling a preferably wide spectrum of all traffic processes in the terminal area.
Virtual Institute - Airport Planing and Management
Goal of the Virtual Institute is the development and verification of capacity functions for runways at airports which incorporate traffic quality assessment in addition to traffic volume as it is done with the "Level-of'Service" method (LoS) for road traffic.
