Harnessing the power of big data to address transportation challenges.

social media transportation.

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.

Data Warehouse for Buffalo-Niagara region.

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

Pavement Rehabilitation via P3.

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

Social Media Logos.

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.

Highway.

Examining in-vehicle and infrastructure-based technologies to assess how they might impact emergency responders, particularly EMS.

Inferring Origin-Destination Demand and Utility-Based Travel Preferences in Multi-Modal Travel Environment Using Automatic Fare Collection Data.

Understanding and expressing public transit system utilization based on fundamental travel behavior.

Incident Response Control Center.

Exploring historical incident and traffic data to revolutionize response strategies.

Cyber transportation - Connected Vehicles.

Developing the tools needed to process immense amounts of data, develop new performance metrics based on the data collected, and propose methods to enhance performance.

social media transportation.

Analyzing traffic violations and traffic crash records to develop a probabilistic model that will help detect high risk drivers with the main goal of preventing future crashes.

Cyber transportation - Connected Vehicles.

Creating a mobile computer application for documenting and sharing data regarding vehicular accidents.

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.

Upcoming Events
