Research topics and future developments go to indexgo upgo down
Road and railway design and planning. Economic and effectiveness analysis for transportation and manufacturing systems. Technological feasibility and maintenance policies for transportation and manufacturing systems.

Results:
Analysis and definition of maintenance policies for cableway system plants in the Trentino region. Analysis and simulations of variable mix production processes. Designing and equilibration of production processes in bounded condition. Design technics to aid the decision about the choice between various intersection types roadlands design and level of service evaluation. Highway accident situation and operating analysis. Specific activities have been developed, like feasibility study of the new cableway Malcesine - Monte Baldo and of the tunneling of the Brennero Railway in Trento (now running).
