    Ruben Corthout

    Researcher
    Ruben Corthout graduated in a civil engineering and holds a PhD degree in Transportation Engineering from the Traffic & Infrastructure department of the KU Leuven. Since 2012 he works as a senior researcher at TML. He is mainly specialised in dynamic traffic simulations, designing intelligent traffic light controls, and multimodal traffic management. Based on this expertise, he is jointly responsible for supporting the macroscopic dynamic traffic models (MDVM) of Antwerp and the Flemish Border, the roll-out of the new traffic light coordination center (VLCC) in Antwerp, and the conversion of the A12.

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.

Design of Road Traffic Management Albania

TML is participating in the development of a traffic management system for Albania. To do this, we first look at the needs of the various parties and the financial feasibility. Finally, we work out a system architecture and organisational model in detail, including an estimate of all costs to be incurred.
