Harnessing the power of big data to address transportation challenges.

Creating a quality-aware crowdsourced road sensing system that integrates sensory data from multiple vehicles while placing more weight on the vehicles that provide high quality data to significantly improve integration accuracy.

Extending the work that was completed for year one funding related to “Developing Highway Safety Performance Metrics in an Advanced Connected Vehicle Environment Utilizing Near-Crash Events from the SHRP 2 Naturalistic Driving Study.”

Designing a transportation data-warehouse prototype for the Buffalo-Niagara region and demonstrating its usefulness through a specific application.

Invistigating aggressive driving behavior under driver fatigue, and under normal and distracted driving conditions.

Mining social media data to deduce useful information about present or future travelers’ behavior, with a special emphasis under events, including both planned and unplanned.

Investigating how multiple traffic data sources can be integrated in a consistent manner, and how they may be best used for arterial performance measurement.

Conducting a detailed, multivariate statistical assessment of pavement treatments by public-private partnerships, and studying their performance in terms of extending pavement lives.

Pooling P3 project data from various sources to build a database that can be analyzed and used to inform future decision making.

Developing a smartphone-based travel behavior data collection platform that recruits participants by rewarding users with real-time parking information.

The project suggests a bottom-up travel behavior driven approach which obtains trends in individual travel behavior first and use such information to enhance longitudinal origin-destination demand monitoring.

We mine a wealth of data by employing a wide variety of methods, tools and models, including those from artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, statistics, and database systems.  

When these methods are applied to large datasets that have been appropriately compiled and fused together, the result is invaluable and actionable information that can help improve the efficiency, safety, sustainability and resiliency of transportation systems. Our results inform and guide transportation planning, investment decisions, and transportation policies.
