Towards a Safer Urban Transportation System in the Era of Connected & Autonomous Vehicles & Big Data   Abstract In the first part of the talk, it was argued that in an era of disruptive change experienced by all of our transportation systems, there is a need for a comprehensive cyber-physical testbed to develop, verify,…

Xinyue Ye, Visually Exploring Massive Urban Trajectories to Enhance Urban Sustainability and Resilience

Xinyue Ye, Visually Exploring Massive Urban Trajectories to Enhance Urban Sustainability and Resilience Thanks to advanced technologies in sensing and computing, the mobility patterns and dynamics of cities and their citizens are recorded and manifested in a variety of urban trajectory datasets, which include the moving paths of human, taxi, bus, fleets, cars, and so…

Eui-Sung Hwang, Evaluation Methods of Vibration Serviceability for Long Span Cable Bridges

Eui-Sung Hwang, Evaluation Methods of Vibration Serviceability for Long Span Cable Bridges Along with building slender and longer span structures, vibration serviceability becomes more important considerations in bridge design and maintenance. In this study, vibration serviceability and deflection limit for long span cable bridges are investigated using real-time and long-term monitoring data such as accelerations…

Tulio Bittencourt, Monitoring of Structural Integrity of Mixed Concrete-Steel Railway Bridges

Tulio Bittencourt, Monitoring of Structural Integrity of Mixed Concrete-Steel Railway Bridges Some fundamental concepts of Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) and its application were presented. The application of these techniques to study the structural integrity of mixed concrete-steel railway bridges is addressed. Some examples were presented to illustrate some possible uses of SHM in different circumstances.…

Mladen Čičić, Macroscopic Traffic Control Using Connected Autonomous Vehicles

Mladen Čičić, Macroscopic Traffic Control Using Connected Autonomous Vehicles Traffic congestion is a constantly growing problem, with a wide array of negative effects on the society. Even though classical traffic control methods have long been successfully used to alleviate congestion, they are not universally employed, in part due to the necessity of installing additional equipment…

Francesco Corman, Disruption Management in Railway Networks

Francesco Corman, Disruption Management in Railway Networks A major problem of public transport, and railways in particular, is to improve quality of operations by updating an offline timetable to the ever-changing delays situation, in order to improve performance of the transport system. In railway systems, this relates to reducing train delays by reordering, retiming, or…
