Social inequality and air pollution exposure in European cities

Socio-economic deprived people are regularly being more exposed to air pollution, and are always more vulnerable to its consequences.


Impact studies SmartMove

The Brussels Government reached an agreement on 3 December on a smart road pricing scheme. This was substantiated by TML in collaboration with the Université Saint-Louis - Bruxelles. Our impact study (NL and FR) lists the effects on mobility and external costs of transport, budgetary effects and socio-economic effects.

city commuters


The European Commission has released the urban mobility indicators (SUMI) benchmarking tool for cities to monitor and evaluate the implementation of their sustainable urban mobility plans, and assess the performance of their own policies.TML took the lead in the creation of this benchmarking tool.

Blauwe Boulevard Hasselt

TML is responsible for the analysis and creation of the traffic light regulations for the 3 intersections on the Slachthuiskaai.

Road categorisation

Support MDVM

Dynamic traffic models capture travel times and traffic jams in a realistic manner and are therefore ideally suited for scenario analyses at local and regional level to support dynamic traffic management.

Planning study De Bieshoek

Planning study "De Bieshoek"

TML was responsible for the analysis of the mobility aspects and conducted a quick scan Social Cost-Benefit Analysis for this project.

non-combustion particulate matter emissions

Review of recent studies and policies addressing non-combustion particulate matter emissions from break, tyre and road wear

Emissions of non-combustion pollutants from vehicles have increased over the past two decades. This includes emissions from break wear, tyre wear, and road wear.

Investments in the EU energy sector

Energy costs, taxes and the impact of government interventions on investments

Energy costs, taxes and the impact of government interventions on investments

Transport models for air quality

Transport models for air quality

New air quality models require a new type of input with a higher degree of spatial detail. The bottleneck seems to lie in the estimation of transport volumes on a finely meshed map and the quality of the map with respect to the geo-location of the roads.

Met WeCount willen we burgers in beweging zetten om het voortouw te nemen in het aanmaken van gegevens, bewijs en kennis over mobiliteit in hun eigen buurt en straat. In het project staan vijf casestudies centraal die plaatsvinden in Madrid, Ljubljana, Dublin, Cardiff en Leuven. Voor die casestudies zetten we een aantal methodieken in uit de ‘citizen science’ om aan co-creatie te doen en maken we gebruik van innovatieve, goedkope en geautomatiseerde verkeerstellingssensoren.
