Optimizing Parking Capacities in Urban Areas

With this master thesis Tygo Nijsten of the University of Amsterdam aims to optimize parking capacities in an urban area with three specific goals in mind: minimize fossil fuel emissions, minimize travel times, and minimize the space occupied by parking facilities. A very interesting challenge since the three goals can go against each other. He used two components in his method to achieve the goals: a traffic and parking simulating model for urban areas as well as applying evolutionary algorithms to find parking capacities.
