Projects and articles of Sven Maerivoet
Researcher / CommunicationSven Maerivoet holds a PhD degree in traffic engineering. Within TML he is a member of the Data Enrichment Group. His expertise mainly lies in transportation planning models, traffic flow theory, giving courses and lectures, numerical and statistical analysis of various big data, travel time loss functions, multi-agent systems, sustainability effects in cities, external costs of road congestion, the related parking problems and innovative technological solutions, (cooperative) intelligent transportation systems (C-ITS), road user charging, connected, cooperative and automated vehicles, Open Data, Mobility-as-a-Service, Smart Cities, and Telraam. He is coordinator of the international nuMIDAS Horizon 2020 project, and regularly acts as reviewer for the European calls. He is also an active member of several working groups in the ITS Belgium organisation, member of its Board of Directors, and chair of the Belgian MaaS Alliance, former member of the advisory council of the Flemish Institute for Mobility (VIM), and regular reviewer for various scientific journals and conferences. As head of communication at TML, he coordinates all tasks and streamlines the messages.
