Strategic modelling of mobility in a metropolis
Context and objectives
The eco-design of neighbourhoods requires various issues to be factored in: the socio-economic well-being and health of residents, the environmental impacts linked to the occupancy of buildings and the use of transport, the system effects which are at the origin of phenomena such as road congestion or development of a neighbourhood’s appeal.
The postdoctoral fellowship, led by Liu Liu at the École des Ponts ParisTech under the supervision of Fabien Leurent and Nicolas Coulombel, aims to model the daily activities and mobility of people who live or pass through a neighbourhood in order to deduce the economic, social and environmental impacts. The model considers microlocal conditions (the location of people, attractive services and infrastructures, demand for activities, available means of transport) and the interactions between an urban fragment and the rest of the agglomeration.
