Harnessing the power of big data to address transportation challenges.

Incident Response Control Center.

Exploring historical incident and traffic data to revolutionize response strategies.

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.

Cyber transportation - Connected Vehicles.

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

Novel Machine Learning.

Exploring the potential for using a number of machine learning and data mining methods to analyze accident data.

Achieving fuel economy via agent-based models.

Integrating machine learning, big data, sensor networks, and agent-based transportation modeling to prototype an algorithm that combines the power of a model-driven approach with the power of big data.

Obtaining Quality Big Data via Crowdsourced Road Sensing System.

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.

Cyber transportation - Connected Vehicles.

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

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.

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.

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.
