The Transportation Informatics Tier 1 University Transportation Center (TransInfo) showcased not only the experience and innovative thinking of its speakers and guests, but its ability to present Transportation Informatics in a way that was both stimulating and relevant.
Our lunchtime keynote, Dr. Ram Pendyala, is the Frederick R. Dickerson Chair and Professor of Transportation Systems at the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Georgia Tech. He presented "Paradigms for Integrated Modeling in an Era of Connectivity, Automation and Real-time Big Data."
Dr. Adel Sadek, PhD - Director of TransInfo and UB Professor of the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering - opened the symposium and hosted a session "Developing Predictive Border Crossing Delay Models."
Dawn Tucker-Thomas, a grant manager with the U.S. Department of Transportation Office of the Assistant Secretary for Research & Technology, oversees federally funded transportation research grants administered to institutes of higher education. She brought our welcome remarks to a close on the first day of the symposium.
