Transportation Research and Consulting Centre (CCPCT) from University “Politehnica” of Bucharest is coordinated by academic staff active in Transport, Traffic and Logistics Department.

Its mision consists in promoting interdisciplinary research activities, multidisciplinary research and training in the transportation field, in developing new partnerships with researchers involved in engineering, urbanism, architecture, geography, sociology and even mathematics in order to identify core actions and measures for sustainable development challenges.

Through the multitude of alternatives, the acceleration of technological progress consequences determines requirements enhancements and severe limitations in transport system’s external negative effects.  Fundamental research should allow important field actors, involved in decision making, to choose the appropriate solutions that, in the context of sustainable development, multiple restrictions and available technological alternatives, offer a high quality transport (in terms of security, safety, time, comfort, convenience, punctuality, flexibility, cost, etc.), incorporating a socio economical perspective on European and even global space.

 

Main research topics

  • Models for transport integration according to land use and sustainable development requirements
    • Land use impact on social mobility
    • Strategic decision making in transport networks design and management according to interdisciplinary character of society’s technical infrastructure
    • Transport externalities assessment and internalization solutions
    • Complex solutions (Hybrid technologies, green energy sourses etc) for pollutant emissions decrease
  • Multi modal high performance transportation systems for resource consume decrease and external effects limitation
    • Infrastructures and technologies that insure regional, national and European networks interoperability
    • Integrated systems that fulfil goods transfer logistical demands
    • Simulation and mathematical models for infrastructures performance increase (networks, terminals, different transport modes junction points etc.)
  • Solutions for social mobility in high urbanised areas, in terms of lesser resource consumes and reduced external effects
    • Attractive public transport
    • Monitor, control and command for congested traffic decrease through conflict areas flow solutions
    • Individual trips and public transport interaction
    • New technologies to integrate urban, periurban and regional transport
    • Urban logistics for supply and distribution according sustainable development requirements
  • Transport safety and security
    • Modelling and assessing road traffic risk
    • Technical solutions and regulations for active and passive safety (including educational aspects) according to behavioural particularities
  • Transport marketing and competition studies (multimodal and global)
  • Quality management systems; public regulation mechanisms (taxes, fares, cover charges, etc.)

Resources assignment / redistribution functions and macro economical regulation.
