Dr Alexander Erath is co-founder of Erveco, a research-based consultancy that specialises in data and simulation driven transport planning. He is also a Principal Investigator at the Future Cities Laboratory (FCL) of the Singapore-ETH Centre. His main research interests are surveying and modelling of travel behaviour, transport simulation and the interplay between spatial planning, urban design and mobility patterns.
His most recent research projects include the development of MATSim Singapore, an agent-based transport simulation model and its application to evaluate urban mobility futures with self-driving vehicles. “Bike to the Future” is exploring the application of a Virtual Reality Cycling simulator to gauge stress and comfort levels of different urban cycling infrastructures.
