On the Data Science In Aviation event:

Previous editions of the Data Science in Aviation event were hosted in Madrid 2013, Paris 2014 and Brussels 2015. The popular event usually draws attendance from more than 80 individuals from top European and worldwide aviation entities (including Airbus, Eurocontrol, Boeing, EASA, Airlines, Airports, ANSPs, SESAR , Universities, etc) along with ICT and data-related entities (including CERN researchers, Fraunhofer, Infrastructure-related, and various universities). Notable presenters from the 2016 edition included EASA, Innaxis, NATS, Eurocontrol, Boeing, ENAC and Fraunhofer.

In terms of the event agenda and content, the presentations has traditionally outlined how data science is understood as a useful set of fundamental principles that support and guide the principled extraction of information and knowledge from aviation data. Furthermore, the discipline leans on well-known data-mining techniques, and goes far beyond these techniques with successful data-science paradigms which provide specific applications in various air transport areas (safety, performance, mobility etc).

 

On DATASET2050 Samuel’s presentation:

The event also highlighted a key presentation from Innaxis project coordinator, Samuel Cristobal. Samuel presented five different points on data science in aviation.

  • First, he explained how some of the data science tools, techniques and concepts have been used in the mobility context, specifically using the DATASET2050 project as a case example.
  • Second, Samuel explained the different door to door phases under analysis (door-kerb; kerb-gate; gate-gate; kerb-door), which helps to delve deeper in the different data science components within aviation phases.
  • Third, Samuel outlined the different links between project objectives and overall Flightpath2050 goals.
  • The fourth point explored mobility data in Europe, and the value of the DATASET approach in this context.
  • The presentation concluded with a fifth and final point announcing the next communication actions. The full presentation can be accessed here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/91julyl8gsij2k9/DATASET_SC_v1.pdf?dl=0

 

In sum, the fourth edition of the Data Science in Aviation event was an excellent opportunity for dissemination of DATASET2050. This was in conjunction with a fruitful exchange of ideas with other aviation data scientists, some of whom working with similar tools in other sub-areas far from mobility. We hope to continue this momentum of knowledge exchange and look forward to a potential fifth edition of the popular event.

Innaxis at ICRAT 2016

Between June 20 to 24, our PhD student Seddik Belkoura went at the very doorstep of the famous Rocky Balboa Statue, as the seventh edition of the International Conference on Air Transport (ICRAT) was held at Drexel University (Philadelphia, USA) . This successful event, co-organised by the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration-USA) and EUROCONTROL, put the emphasis the next generation of researchers, with a strong participations of students keen on interacting with more mature and expert minds.

 

In Seddik’s presentation during the conference, he wanted to highlight the dynamic nature of the delay propagation process in Air Transportation. He showed in his talk that abnormal delays at a given airport (those with an unexpected magnitude) can perturb the way the delays are propagated in “normal” conditions. The quantity of “surprise” necessary to disrupt an airport can be quantifiable, and an approximation of the additional delay necessary to disrupt the propagative dynamics of each airport have been proposed by Seddik. The audience’s interest at this point indicated that work have still have to be done to master all the complex behaviours of some processes like delay propagations.

 

The event was a success, and the areas of investigation within Air Transportation were quite wide. One special note have been noticed by Seddik: the growing number of presentation (and attention) to drones. The recentness of the concept and the velocity with which it develops and spreads is such that it deserves a special attention. Legislation are not yet fully explicit and a lot of work to design the “future” if happening right now. It is the moment to use our experience with Aviation to better fashion the drone system. Specifically, the importance of data should be pointed out, to allow a better development and a continuous improvement of this new and growing complex system.

 

Seddik’s paper and the presentation about drones will be soon available on the official website of the conference (http://www.icrat.org/)

EU Door-to-Door Mobility Workshop – Abstracts

  • Session 1. Challenges of a data-driven model

The current state of mobility in Europe – University of Westminster
The foundations of the DATASET2050 model are described in this presentation, along with some of the corresponding data sources used in its construction. Using mobility, we show roughly how far from the target we are currently in Europe, with optimistic and less optimistic scenarios. We present the order of magnitude of the trip segments and introduce the main problematic. Finally, we have a brief look at how uncertainty is playing a key role right now in transportation with the creation of buffers – pure interplay between supply and demand.

Meeting the passenger’s demand: current and future – Bauhaus Luftfahrt
This presentation illustrates the passenger-centric approach taken within the DATASET2050 project by developing current demand profiles. It elaborates different aspects influencing passenger demand such as age, income, household structure, or technological affinity. Based on the analysis of European data, a range of passenger profiles and respective characteristics are derived. These determine the requirements passengers have during their journey and hence the time spent in different processes. Furthermore, data on European mobility behaviour yields different archetype journeys for these passengers.

Developing a new model for European mobility – Innaxis
The DATASET2050 mobility model is a mathematical framework aiming to represent the European door-to-door transportation network. The model has a stochastic approach inherited from complex networks theory, but is ultimately implemented using data science tools. This presentation will address how journey lengths are estimated as an aggregation of multiple random sub-processes and how decision networks are driven by stochastic supply and demand profiles. Several candidate mobility metrics will also be discussed and how the model can be used, to some extent, to analyse future scenarios.

  • Session 2. Further exploring the journey process phase by phase – where are the efficiency gains?

Door-to-kerb – Prof. Dr. Kai Nagel, Technical University of Berlin
The MATSim (Multi Agent Transport Simulation) project is involved with the microscopic simulation of individual travellers at the regional or even national scale. The approach starts from a synthetic population where real humans are replaced by statistical equivalents, builds full daily schedules for them, and follows them through their day with a special focus on the transport system. The system also allows us to run detailed analysis tasks; for example, investigating the accessibility of households to all kinds of services by all means of transport. Clearly, it would also be possible to follow synthetic persons from home or workplace to an airport, or from airport to workplace or home. This presentation will demonstrate current capabilities and discuss possible extensions to MATSim.

Kerb-to-gate – Dr. Genovefa Kefalidou, Horizon 2020 PASSME project
Understanding passenger, airports and airlines’ needs promptly, transforming them into intelligence and adjusting services based on this intelligence is now even more demanding. PASSME is an EU-Horizon 2020-funded project in which we aim to provide innovations to modern journey challenges while at airports. We work on innovations to enhance passengers’ experiences (including reducing stress), providing real-time personalised information, improving interiors and luggage flow and forecasting passenger flow. We identify that passenger needs intertwine strongly with airport and airline needs, manifesting opportunities to build a relationshipamongst all these stakeholders through the use of mobile, back-end and situated innovations. This relationship demands to be maintained throughout the different airport touch points (e.g. kerb-to-gate) to facilitate and optimise the journey process as knock-on effects are transferred between phases, often causing further delays and dissatisfaction.

Gate-to-gate – Steve Williams, NATS
This presentation considers a selection of SESAR concepts, considering changes from flight plans to business trajectories and from distance-based to time-based spacing, also including extended arrival management horizons and system-wide information management (SWIM). It considers the relevance of SESAR to future transport goals: what could SESAR provide to other transport modes, what are the limitations, and why are the limitations unlikely to change? The importance of air traffic management data accuracy is also discussed, and why data are much more precise once an aircraft has left the ground.

  • Session 3. Looking ahead to 2035 and 2050

Futures near and far – Christoph Schneider, Munich Airport
There are many potentially disrupting developments that add a lot of uncertainty when it comes to predicting mobility in 2035. The ACARE mobility vision does not contradict any of these trends. The European aviation market may appear to mature wrt growth rates, but absolute growth will most likely still be huge. Airport capacity is set to be the limiting factor with little hope of being coped with. Munich Airport is very actively engaged in activities to increase capacity, improve intermodality and enhance passenger experience by innovative digital products – these areas are common denominators for mobility in 2035.

Innaxis at EASA-OPTICS conference. Cologne 12-14 April

Developing the future of a safe and growing aviation business, whilst also reassuring the travelling public that it is safe to fly, is a major vision for both EU and national aviation policies, however:

What role do policy makers play?

What are the recent, implemented safety measures?

Who is guiding the safety topics within aviation research?

EASA, the European Commission, the Advisory Council of Aviation Research & Innovation in Europe (ACARE), and the EU’s OPTICS Project organised a three day event in Cologne (12-14 April) in order to provide answers to these types of imperative questions, and furthermore define the way forward to ensure continued aviation safety in Europe. The event had a number of presentations and workshops within several aviation safety areas.

Two Innaxis’ team members David Perez (dp@innaxis.org) and Hector Ureta (hu@innaxis.org) attended the interesting event and took part in several of the workshops, explaining how can Data Science and BIG data can boost aviation safety. Hector  also presented some of the latest data science techniques and tools in safety research, based on SESAR-COMPASS project, during the third day of the event.

SIDs 2015

Dataset-post

Given DATASET’s long-term scope and air-transport oriented approach, this blog post addresses the upcoming SESAR Innovation Days (SIDs). Research outcomes are only beneficial when it is disseminated to other people/entities/agencies/stakeholders. Given that, please consider this post as part of the promotional obligation of the event, not to mention the presentation includes research threads that will be crucial for DATASET model development.

The 5th edition of the SESAR Innovation Days will be hosted by Università di Bologna, Italy from 1st – 3rd December 2015. The SESAR Innovation Days (SIDs) are the main vehicle through which SESAR (Single European Sky ATM Research) disseminates the results of its long-term and innovative research programme and the event has become a milestone in the European research calendar. Presently SESAR-WPE supports 26 research projects, 3 research networks and 20 PhD studies, and to date has funded more than 75 organisations. With the transition to SESAR 2020 and its Exploratory Research programme under the H2020 calls, Europe will continue to benefit from similar frameworks, leveraging the success of the present research programme and attracting new researchers and scientific disciplines to ATM.

The SIDs is coordinated by EUROCONTROL, as it’s been every year, and Innaxis, University of Westminster, and all of the DATASET partners will be attending as active participants. Interested in learning more about their participation in the SIDs? Continue reading below!

  • EUROCONTROL annually coordinates the event. In particular, Colin Meckiff (EUROCONTROL) is General Chair of the event, and Dirk Schaefer (EUROCONTROL) the Programme Chair. Although they are not directly involved in DATASET2050, they can be reached through Innaxis if you are interested!
  • The Programme Committee includes Andrew Cook (University of Westminster) and David Perez (Innaxis). Both will be more than willing to speak with you at the event regarding DATASET or the SIDs in general. Don’t hesitate to contact them should you have questions!
  • One of the main research priorities within Innaxis and University of Westminster has been exploring trade-offs between different stakeholders. For this particular SIDs, University of Westminster, Innaxis and Belgocontrol will present the paper “Controller time and delay costs- a trade-off analysis.” The paper will be presented within the technical session of the SIDs.
  • The EC four hour door-to-door goal requires additional work and analysis in order to be fully understood. This includes building new modelling tools in which the metrics and data analysis will help to understand how to fully achieve this goal. Innaxis has particular strengthen within the mobility research area, and the Horizon 2020 Coordination and Support Action DataSET 2050 (both coordinated by Innaxis) and the SESAR-CASSIOPEIA agent-based modelling framework may be of interest to you if you are working on mobility research challenges. Please do not hesitate to contact our architect of mobility tools for ATM, Samuel Cristóbal (sc@innaxis.org) and Jorge Martin (jm@innaxis.org) who will both be in attendance at the conference.
  • The ComplexWorld network has advanced very much within the last five years. The network coordinator Paula López (Innaxis) will give a presentation on the first day of SIDs, which will provide an overview of the ComplexWorld evolution since it was launched with key emphasis on the 2015 outcomes. Furthermore, ComplexWorld will participate in the research Tournament on Wednesday Dec. 2nd. Please feel free to talk with Paula (plc@innaxis.org) if you are interested in additional information.
  • For a few years, Innaxis has been working on new air transport metrics and indicators. Along these lines, we have been crafting a tool to compute metrics against real traffic data with advanced visual tools to help understand these complex metrics. On the day before SIDs (Monday Nov 30th), we will be hosting a workshop on air transport resilience metrics: The 2015Resilience2050 Workshop. Registration is free and more information can be found here:http://resilience2050.innaxis.org/workshop-2015-bologne-sids/. Please contact Hector Ureta (hu@innaxis.org) for further information on the workshop and/or resilience research.
  • Data Science has also been an area of major interest for Innaxis in the last few years. We are working on different elements of a big data / data science infrastructure that allows major data mining for Air Transport across different fronts: from evaluating current delay propagation and the resilience of airports and airlines against disturbances, to evaluating new paradigms on safety monitoring; all of which is based on powerful deep analytics. We are very proud of our advancements in this area. Our colleague Massimiliano Zanin will be at the conference, and you can feel free to contact him (mz@innaxis.org) regarding this topic.
  • Complex network theory is also of same importance within Innaxis’s research and it has been increasingly used to study the air transport system by defining static or dynamic structures to characterise how airports are connected. Our ComplexWorld PhD student, Seddik Belkoura, will present a poster titled “A young person’s guide to the reconstruction of air transport networks” depicting how the sampling processes intervening in the construction of such structures can affect the topological stability of the final system’s representation. Please contact him if this is of your interest (sb@innaxis.org).
  • Also, Information Management has been an area of interest for us. In particular, we think the Data Science paradigms will only be fully enabled if data is shared across stakeholders. This can only be achieved if the right security and encrypted mechanisms are in place. Along these lines, there will also be a discussion about the main results of the SecureDataCloud project. Please talk to Massimiliano if you would like to learn more about Innaxis’s efforts in Information Management.
  • Last but not least, Innaxis will serve as a SIDs rapporteur and will help Eurocontrol to extract key conclusions and provide our own views on the future research avenues. Carlos Álvarez (Innaxis President) will facilitate this during the closing session. Please, contact Carlos (calvarez@innaxis.org) if you would like to continue the discussion!

Hope to see you in Bologna!

Innaxis at SIDs 2015

Every year we are excited to participate in the SESAR Innovation Days (SIDs) 2015, organised by Eurocontrol and the SJU, which will take place this year in Bologna, Italy. In 2015, Innaxis has been particularly busy in long term aviation research and as in previous SIDs, we will be continue to be especially engaged during the event. We look forward to discussing many innovative research topics and provide an update on Innaxis’ efforts. These include:

 

  • The ComplexWorld network has greatly evolved within the last five years. On the first day of SIDs, the network coordinator, Paula Lopez, will present an overview of the ComplexWorld evolution since it was launched with special emphasis on the key 2015 outcomes and 2016 initiatives. Please feel free to reach out to Paula (plc@innaxis.org) if you are interested in obtaining more information on the network activities.
  • At Innaxis we have been working on new air transport metrics and indicators for the last few years. We have been crafting a tool to compute those metrics against real traffic data along with advanced visual tools to help understand these complex metrics. On the day before SIDs officially commences, Monday Nov. 30, we will be hosting a workshop on air transport resilience metrics: The 2015 Resilience2050 Workshop. Additional information along with free registration can be found here. Please contact Hector Ureta (hu@innaxis.org) for further information on the workshop and/or resilience research.
  • The EC four hour door-to-door challenge warrants more effort to bring everyone on the same page. Building new modelling tools, metrics and data analysis capabilities will help to understand how we may achieve this goal. Innaxis has strong expertise within Mobility, with coordination efforts in the Horizon 2020 Coordination and Support Action DataSET 2050, along with the most recent SESAR-CASSIOPEIA agent-based modelling framework. These research initiatives may be of interest to you if you are working with mobility. Please do not hesitate to contact our architect of mobility tools for ATM, Samuel Cristóbal (sc@innaxis.org) and Jorge Martin (jm@innaxis.org) who will be at the conference.
  • Exploring trade-offs between different stakeholders has always been one of the main research priorities within Innaxis. For this particular SIDs Innaxis has liaised with the University of Westminster and Belgocontrol to present the paper “Controller time and delay costs -a trade-off analysis”. The paper will be presented within the technical sessions of the SIDs.
  • Data Science has also been an area of major interest at Innaxis over the last few years. We are working on different elements of a big data / data science infrastructure to enable major data mining efforts within Air Transport, including: current delay propagation evaluations, airport and airline resilience against disturbances, and an evaluation on new paradigms for safety monitoring, all of which is contingent on powerful deep analytics. We have advanced very far in this area, for which we are very proud. Our colleague Massimiliano Zanin will be at the conference and can speak to these efforts. Feel free to contact him at mz@innaxis.org.
  • In addition, complex network theory has also been prioritised within Innaxis’s research efforts and has been increasingly used to study the air transport system by defining static or dynamic structures to characterise how airports are connected. Our ComplexWorld PhD student, Seddik Belkoura, will present a poster entitled “A young person’s guide to the reconstruction of air transport networks” depicting how the sampling processes intervening in the construction of such structures can affect the topological stability of the final system’s representation. Please, contact him if this is of your interest (sb@innaxis.org).
  • Information Management has also been an area of interest for us. In particular, we think Data Science paradigms can only be fully enabled if data is transparently shared across stakeholders, which can only be achieved with the right secure and encrypted mechanisms are put in place. Related to this, the Innaxis team will present a talk about the main results of the SecureDataCloud project. Again, please reach out to Massimiliano Zanin should this be your area of interest.
  • Last, but not least, we will also serve as SIDs rapporteurs and help Eurocontrol extract some conclusions as well as provide our own views on future research avenues. Carlos Alvarez will lead this during the closing session. Please, contact Carlos (calvarez@innaxis.org) if you’d like to continue the conversation!

 

We hope we have many opportunities to interact next week and hope you find our activities interesting and motivating for future initiatives.
See you soon in Bologna!
