This book presents a number of guidelines that are particularly useful in the context of decisions related to system-approach-based
modern traffic engineering for the development of transport networks. Including practical examples and describing decision-making
support systems it provides valuable insights for those seeking solutions to contemporary transport system problems on a daily
basis, such as professional working for local authorities involved in planning urban and regional traffic development strategies
as well as representatives of business and industry directly involved in implementing traffic engineering solutions. The guidelines
provided enable readers to address problems in a timely manner and simplify the choice of appropriate strategies (including
those connected with the relation between pedestrians and vehicle traffic flows, IT development in freight transport, safety
issues related to accidents in road tunnels, but also open areas, like roundabouts and crossings). Furthermore, since the
book also examines new theoretical-model approaches (including the model of arrival time distribution forming in a dense vehicle
flow, the methodological basis of modelling and optimization of transport processes in the interaction of railways and maritime
transport, traffic flow surveys and measurements, transport behaviour patterns, human factors in traffic engineering, and
road condition modelling), it also appeals to researches and scientists studying these problems.
This book features
selected papers submitted to and presented at the 16th Scientific and Technical Conference Transport Systems Theory and Practice
organized by the Department of Transport Systems and Traffic Engineering at the Faculty of Transport of the Silesian University
of Technology. The conference was held on 16-18 September 2019 in Katowice (Poland), more details at www.TSTP.polsl.pl.
