Projects and articles of Willem Himpe
ResearcherWillem Himpe is a civil engineer specialised in traffic (KU Leuven). As a student, he made a master thesis in cooperation with the Transport & Mobility Laboratory at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). In September 2010, Willem started as a research assistant at L-Mob CIB. His research was funded by a personal research grant from the Flemish Government for 4 years (IWT/SBO 101684). Early 2016, Willem defended his PhD work on integrated algorithms for dynamic traffic modelling. Willem combined the work at TML with a part-time employment as a doctoral assistant at KU Leuven until June 2021. He developed dynamic traffic models for the Antwerp region and the Flemish periphery around Brussels on behalf of the Policy Department at MOW. His work also includes the exploration of innovative data collection methods for mobility analysis, such as deriving travel patterns based on mobile data and navigation services. Since 2017, Willem has been closely involved as a system developer in the development of Telraam, an online citizen platform for traffic data collection.
Dynamic Traffic Model Antwerp
Development of a macroscopic dynamic traffic model for the Antwerp region.
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.
Transport models for air quality
This project is a testcase to investigate if an alternative approach to generate transport volumes can deliver sufficient quality to feed air quality models.
Citizen-led air pollution reduction in cities.
Dynamic Traffic Model Brussels
Development of a macroscopic dynamic traffic model for the Brussels region.
Significant and innovative solutions for Safety, Security and Privacy dedicated for automated systems
Mobility Management with ANPR

TML'ers have their say! #4
In this section we would like to introduce you to our colleagues at TML. This way you get to know us a little better and discover what everyone within TML is doing. Recently we had a conversation with Willem, Dirk, Kris, and Hanne!
