  1. 1. DECISION-MAKING FOR AUTONOMOUS CONSTRUCTION VEHICLES

    University essay from Mälardalens högskola/Inbyggda system; Mälardalens högskola/Inbyggda system

    Author : Gallardo Marielle; Chakraborty Sweta; [2019]
    Keywords : shared-space users; MPDM; timing analysis; planning and decision-making; autonomous vehicle; MDP; reinforcement learning; social force model;

    Abstract : Autonomous driving requires tactical decision-making while navigating in a dynamic shared space environment. The complexity and uncertainty in this process arise due to unknown and tightly-coupled interaction among traffic users. READ MORE

  2. 2. Exploring the distribution of accessibility by public transport using spatial analysis : a case study for retail concentrations and public hospitals in Athens

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Evangelos Vafeiadis; [2019]
    Keywords : geography; GIS; spatial analysis; geographic weighted regression; spatial clustering; local indicators of spatial association; public transport; accessibility; Social Sciences; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : This thesis studies the distribution of accessibility by public transport to retail concentrations and public hospitals in Athens, using spatial autocorrelation analysis based on Local Indicators of Spatial Autocorrelation (LISA) method and Geographically Weighted Regression (GWR). For this reason, the study area was divided in a 300x300 meter square grid of points representing the location points of the study. READ MORE
