HARMONY’s partners will produce scientific, technical and commercial papers throughout the project to promote results and solutions. They will be submitted to participate in major related congresses and events as well as to be published in international peer-reviewed journals.

- September 2021 – IEEE Xplore . “A Software-Agnostic Agent-based Platform for Modelling Emerging Mobility Systems” designs a new modular, software-agnostic and activity-based spatial and transport planning platform, i.e, the HARMONY Model Suite, that facilitates a novel integration of new and existing spatial and transport modelling tools. The paper focuses on describing the architecture of the platform and its passenger mobility simulation framework, which integrates -in an interoperable manner-activity-based models, mobility service management, and traffic simulation tools for evaluating new mobility system dynamics.
- July 2021 International Conference on Transportation Research. “Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning During the Covid-19 Pandemic: Barriers and Opportunities from Public Authorities’ Perspective” focuses on how Covid-19 has affected transport planning priorities and policy making. The results of this study revealed that planning objectives were significantly different in the period after Covid-19 outbreak compared to the period before that. Moreover, it was shown that most of the actions adopted to accommodate the prioritised planning objectives were already defined before Covid-19, indicating that the pandemic has acted as an accelerator of specific existing planning objectives.
- May 2021 – Transportation Research Record – Journal of the Transportation Research Board. “Simulation of the Impact of a Zero-Emission Zone on Freight Delivery Patterns in Rotterdam” analyses the impacts of the implementation of heterogenous transition scenarios for each logistic segment into the Tactical Freight Simulator from the HARMONY project.
- January 2021 – Transportation Research Board (TRB) 2021. “Application of the HARMONY tactical freight simulator for a case study for a zero emission zone in Rotterdam” analyses the impacts of the implementation of heterogenous transition scenarios for each logistic segment into the Tactical Freight Simulator from the HARMONY project.
- January 2021 – Transportation Research Board (TRB) 2021. “Matching supply and demand in crowdshipping – a theoretical framework” presents a theoretical methodological framework that proposes an innovative collection of preference data in order to develop choice models that identify the need willingness of commuters to crowdship. In parallel it calculates the demand and proposes the development of a real-time matching simulator for the assignment of packets to crowdshippers and then to the network.
- January 2021 – Transportation Research Board (TRB) 2021. “Mode choice modelling with machine learning” provides empirical evidence of the effect that dataset imbalance might have on prediction measures and proposes a sequential tour-based framework for addressing skewed travel diary data.
- January 2021 – Transportation Research Board (TRB) 2021. “Optimal multimodal and multicriteria path set computation for dynamic trip planning in mobility as a service systems” demonstrates the computation of diverse optimal and realistic unimodal and multimodal trips in reasonable computation time, setting the ground for further exploration into practical large-scale implementations.
- September 2020 – European Transport Conference (ECT) 2020. “HARMONY model suite: an integrated spatial and multimodal transport planning tool to lead a sustainable transition to a new mobility era” reports on the HARMONY project which envisages developing a new generation of harmonised spatial and multimodal transport planning tools.
