Development and Tech Transfer of an Integrated Robust Traffic State and Parameter Estimation and Adaptive Ramp Metering Control System

Background Timely updated knowledge of traffic state and traffic flow parameters is essential for effective traffic control. Because of its simplicity, the Cell Transmission Model (CTM) has been widely used to serve as the underlying traffic flow model based on which a traffic state estimation scheme is built. A prominent feature of CTM is that…

Securing Intelligent Transportation Systems against Spoofing Attacks

Background An intelligent transportation system (ITS) is a system of vehicles and infrastructure that exchange information in real time and make decisions fully or partially automatically. The operations of ITS heavily rely on data collection and transmission, which is subject to prevalent remote and/or on-site attacks. Actual incidents have been reported where hackers spoofed traffic…
