Harnessing the power of big data to address transportation challenges.

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.

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

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

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.

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

Incorporating data analytics into paratransit planning and operations is a promising approach for increasing their cost-effectiveness.

Developing a novel green navigation system, called Green Nav, that gives a driver the most fuel efficient route for his vehicle as opposed to the shortest or fastest route.

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.

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.

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

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.
