Harnessing the power of big data to address transportation challenges.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.”

The project investigates how real-time conditions interact to affect driver safety performance changes. From that understanding, practitioners and drivers can make more informed decisions to reduce the likelihood of a crash.

Exploring historical incident and traffic data to revolutionize response strategies.

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

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.
