Laboratory overview

The field of transportation is undergoing a revolution, fuelled by the recent advances in computation, communications, autonomy and machine learning. The mission of the Transport Systems and Logistics Laboratory (TSL) is to conduct research on the interface between transportation theory and enabling technologies and develop tools and algorithms that improve the quality, efficiency and resilience of transport operations across all modes.

Our research is underpinned by expertise in Network Modelling, Game Theory, Mathematical Optimisation, Autonomous Systems and Simulation, and supported by the facilities of the Intelligent Infrastructure and Transport Systems (IITS) Laboratory. We are a constituent unit of the Centre for Transport Studies, and affiliated with the Centre for Systems Engineering and Innovation, the Port Operations Research and Technology Centre and the Imperial Robotics Forum.
