The Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering
invites you to attend the talk
"The Door-to-Door Passenger Journey"
Dr. Aude Marzuoli
Lead Scientist at Replica
Tuesday, February 18
11am - 12pm
About the Talk:
At the core of transportation is the movement of passengers through various modes from their origin to their destinations. However, much of transportation performance metrics are focused on vehicles. SESAR in Europe and NextGen in the US are now setting performance targets regarding the door-to-door experience, for which there are no agreed upon measures or baseline. Currently, information about passengers is fragmented and rarely shared between various stakeholders. The recent flood of passive sensors is now allowing for the systematic observation of passenger movements throughout their journey. We leverage original data sources, from mobile phones, Uber and social media, along with traditional on-time flight performance metrics and customs and border records, to provide new ways to measure and predict passenger flow movements. In this talk, we explore how performance varies across airports, depending on where passengers live, under nominal and degraded conditions, and compare the time spent by passengers across various transportation modes.
