Domino: The knock-on effect

AUTHOR: Luis Delgado The objective of Domino is to analyse the coupling of elements in the ATM system and how changes (for example, by implementing different mechanism) have an impact on the interrelationships between elements. In order to achieve this, Domino will develop a set of tools, ...

Domino: The structure

Author: Luis Delgado Domino’s project is structured in 6 workpackages as shown in the following image: WP3 will analyse the current and future structure of the ATM system and define the mechanisms and the case studies that will be tested by Domino. These first case studies are the i...

New network metrics for complex interactions!

Author: Silvia Zaoli Air traffic can naturally be described as a networked system, where nodes are the different elements of the airspace, e.g. airports, airlines, or arrival and departure managers, and the links between those nodes describe the interaction between them. Network m...

Domino goes door-to-door!

AUTHOR: Damir Valput As an attentive reader of this blog might already know, Domino’s main goal is to collect evidence on how various implementations of mechanisms such as 4D trajectory adjustments (including Dynamic Cost Indexing, DCI), Prioritisation of Flights (such as  User Driven Prio...

Domino workshops - First results and model validation

Author: Luis Delgado Obtaining feedback from stakeholders and users is critical to validate and improve the model and its capabilities. Domino has participated in a workshop and organised another one to share and discuss its modelling approach, the new network metrics and the initial resul...

Route clustering: reducing complexity not alternatives

AUTHOR: Tanja Bolic The objective of Domino is to study the impact of introduction of new solutions in the ATM system, using the Agent Based Modelling platform. An important part of the platform is the input data for the modelling, especially when it comes to the choice of routes. Domino a...

Complex decision-making of the agents in Domino: 4DTA

AUTHOR: Damir Valput What do we talk about when we talk about 4DTA? The concept of the 4D trajectory considers time to be the fourth dimension of trajectory, integrated with the three spatial dimensions. Therefore, 4D trajectory adjustment (4DTA) allows for not only the adjustments of the ...

New cases to analyse in Domino

AUTHOR: Luis Delgado We are entering the final phase of Domino and now it is time to focus on the detail! From broad to deep In our previous blog entry (“Domino workshop – First results and model validation”), we presented some of the results generated in Domino from ...
