Efficiency in Rail Transport

An interdisciplinary team of Aachen researchers has developed a computer model to optimize waiting times in rail traffic. This should makes it possible to choose optimal operating strategies for train stations and rail networks and to facilitate the planning of new railway systems. The insights are also relevant for other transportation, such as aircraft, trams and cars.
