Structure and Dynamics of Urban Network
Public passenger transport (PPT) is important for each community, as the current transport system faces well-known problems such as congestion, environmental impact, lack of parking areas, increased safety risks and high energy consumption. On the other hand, PPT is uncompetitive to a passenger car, as it does not allow for comfortable and time-sensitive transport, but forces users to adjust their daily rhythm to the PPT timetable. In rural areas where the population density is lower, and the average age is often higher, due to the greater fragmentation of settlements, the connection with urban centers through PPT is a particularly big problem. The use of cars for transport to the city in Novo mesto (NM) is reflected in the form of traffic jams in the morning and afternoon peaks, and during the day in the form of high occupancy of parking spaces around the public areas (hospital, health center); near employers. In the past years, the city municipality has created more than 300 additional parking lots in the vicinity of the center and has eliminated some bottlenecks in traffic, but due to the severely curtailed traffic through the city center, promising after the completion of the renovation of the Main Square in NM, jams. The city's transport system also includes a bicycle, for which in civilized countries a special bicycle path on the sidewalks is allocated. The urban passenger transport is faced with the task of delivering passengers to their destination with maximum comfort at the minimum cost of time, labor and resources. In this talk, I will present car parking problem and bicycle transport in city Novo mesto with mathematical tools network theory.
CV: Matej Babič received his Ph. D. degree in Computer Science in 2014 from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of the University of Maribor. Slovenia. He studied Mathematics at the Faculty of Education in Maribor. He concluded postdoc at Jožef Stefan Institute, Ljubljana, Slovenia. Now research urban transport system in city Novo mesto, Slovenia at Faculty of Information studies. His research interest is in fractal geometry, graph theory, intelligent systems, hybrid machine learning, topography of materials after hardening and urban transport system.
