CIVAS (Community IntraVenous Antibiotic Study) looks at improving UK implementation and reduced geographic variation in community intravenous (IV) antibiotic services. There is a paucity of information upon which the National Health Service (NHS) can base decisions regarding the design, supply and commissioning of such services and upon which national guidance developers can base recommendations for best…
ecoDriver is an EU funded research project which targets a 20% reduction of CO2 emissions and fuel consumption in road transport by encouraging the adoption of green driving behaviour. Drivers will receive eco-driving recommendations and feedback adapted to them and to their vehicle characteristics. A range of driving profiles, powertrains (conventional, hybrid, electrical) and vehicles types…
ACTUM aims to make a step change in developing and implementing activity based models in Europe. The objective is to develop a new decision support methodology for transport policy evaluation. We aim to design an instrument able to evaluate sustainable transport policies that need a balance between guaranteeing mobility and reducing transport externalities (e.g., CO2 emissions)….
Transtools3 is a project upgrading and further developing the European transport network model that has been developed in collaborative projects funded by the European Commission Joint Research Centre’s Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) and DG TREN. The various Commission services addressing transport issues have agreed to use TRANSTOOLS as the main model for policy analysis…
A new study launched by the Department for Transport (DfT) will provide up-to-date valuations of travel time savings and reliability in order to better appraise transport infrastructure schemes. DfT has appointed Arup to manage and deliver market research for the study. Arup will deliver the project in partnership with ITS, who will be responsible for…
I-ASC – Identifying appropriate symbol communication aids for children who are non-speaking: enhancing clinical decision making Some children with conditions such as cerebral palsy, dyspraxia or severe autism, struggle to develop intelligible speech. High-tech augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) can enable such children to supplement their communication by accessing pictures, symbols and/or text, often accompanied…
NG-DBM (Next Generation Driving Behaviour Models) is a four year research project funded by the European Union involving only members of CMC. The goal of this project is to develop dynamic driving behaviour models that explicitly account for the effects of driver characteristics in his/her decisions alongside the effects of path-plan, network topography and traffic conditions….
Decisions is a large five year research programme funded by the European Research Council which involves only members of CMC. The project looks at modelling long and short term decisions in a changing world. It aims to develop a new framework which realigns modelled behaviour with real world behaviour, jointly representing the choice of multiple options…
