SOFTWARE TOOLS TO SUPPORT RESEARCH ON AIRPORT DEPARTURE PLANNING Francis Carr, Antony Evans, Eric Feron, John-Paul Clarke International Centerfor Air Transportation Massachusetts Institute of Technology Cambridge MA Abstract A simple, portable and useful collection of software tools has been developed for the analysis of airport surface traffic.
The tools are based on a flexible and robust traffic-flow model, and include calibration, validation and simulation functionality for this model.
Several different interfaces have been developed to help promote usage of these tools, including a portable MatlabTMimplementation of the basic algorithms; a web-based interface which provides online access to automated analyses of airport traffic based on a database of real-world operations data which covers over 250 U.S.
airports over a 5-year period; and an interactive simulationbased tool currently in use as part of a college-level educational module.
More advanced applications for airport departure traffic include taxi-time prediction and evaluation of “windowing” congestion control. Introduction Congestion and delays on the airport surface are a significant source of financial and uncertainty costs for both airlines and the flying public.
These mounting costs have fueled research into methods for improving the airport departure process, either via the elimination of existing inefficiencies or the creation of decision-aiding tools.
Lacking any means to field-test new hypothesized models and proposed improvements, this research has necessitated the use of s o h a r e tools for modeling, analyzing and simulating airport surface traffic. A variety of software tools with generally similar goals are commercially available and widely used for airport planning [ 11.
However, as often the case, commercial software tools lack several characteristics which are required in academic research: Easy to modify the traffic-flow model used by the software. Traffic-flow model and softwa...
