Research Focus

The researchers, including Caicedo, Estrada, Medina-Tapia, and Mayorga, focus on optimizing bike network design for heterogeneous travel demands using continuous approximation techniques. Their work, published in Transportation Research Part A: Policy and Practice in 2023, proposes a cost-effective methodology for addressing diverse travel needs within a bike network. Unfortunately, the abstract and related documents are disabled, preventing a detailed summary. Additionally, Caicedo has collaborated on a project titled “A methodology for assessing the impact of living labs on urban design: The case of the furnish project,” published in Sustainability in 2021. This work explores the influence of living labs on urban design.
