Implementation and application of a stochastic aircraft boarding model
TLDR
A prior developed, calibrated, stochastic aircraft boarding model is used, which is applied to different boarding strategies (chronological order of passenger arrival, hand luggage handling), group constellations and innovative infrastructural changes (Flying Carpet, Side-Slip Seat, Foldable Passenger Seat). Expand
Field Trial Measurements to Validate a Stochastic Aircraft Boarding Model
TLDR
A microscopic approach is used to model the passenger behavior, where the passenger movement is defined as a one-dimensional, stochastic, and time/space discrete transition process as a reliable basis for calibrating models for aircraft boarding. Expand
Dynamic airspace sectorisation for flight-centric operations
Abstract Today’s air traffic operations follow the paradigm of ‘flow follows structure’, which already limits the operational efficiency and punctuality of current air traffic movements. Therefore,Expand
Boarding on the critical path of the turnaround
Due to the fact, that the boarding is always on the critical path of the aircraft turnaround, efficient boarding strategies are an essential for a reliable turnaround progress. Since the boardingExpand
Dynamic Airspace Sectorization using Controller Task Load
Within this paper a new approach for a dynamic airspace sectorization based on controller task load is presented. We combine fuzzy clustering, Voronoi diagrams and evolutionary algorithms to createExpand
Current and Future Unmanned Aircraft System Control & Communications Datalinks.
Today, Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) perform a wide variety of roles and missions from providing surveillance along our borders to engaging and destroying enemy targets on foreign soil. All ofExpand
Aircraft Boarding - Data, Validation, Analysis
TLDR
A microscopic approach is used to model the passenger behaviour, where the passenger movement is defined as a one-dimensional, stochastic, and time/space discrete transition process and achieves an accuracy of ± 5%. Expand
Passenger Dynamics at Airport Terminal Environment
TLDR
A significant difference in behavior between business and leisure related passenger groups was resolved and the size of a passenger group has a significant influence on walking speed, whereas large groups tend to diverge into smaller groups with 2–3 members. Expand
A metric for the real-time evaluation of the aircraft boarding progress
TLDR
This paper provides a set of indicators for depicting the real-time status of the boarding progress as a fundamental basis for the prediction of the crucial aircraft departure time and provides a fundamental contribution towards the derivation of the key time. Expand
Group Dynamic Behavior and Psychometric Profiles as Substantial Driver for Pedestrian Dynamics
Our current research lays emphasis on the extended pedestrian perception and copes with both the dynamic group behavior and the individual evaluation of situations, and hence, rather focuses on theExpand
