Description of Work: 


One of the most fascinating types of interaction in an Air Traffic environment occurs in the Airport area, where ground movements interact with air movements. Understanding this interaction, identifying ways to simulate it efficiently, and modelling it properly require efficient algorithms for managing multiple interdependent queues. This project aims at developing a new algorithm in this direction.

Expected Background Knowledge:

  • Knowledge or demonstrated ability to do programming in parallel highperformance computing environment using C or JAVA
  • Good knowledge of Queuing Theory, Flow Modelling, and Discrete Event Simulation

Description of work:

  • A literature review
  • Creating a new algorithm that is fast and scalable for multiple inter-dependent queues interaction
  • Testing the new algorithm
