Each year, the C2SMART Center acknowledges one student from any of its member institutions as a Student of the Year as chosen by the Center’s executive leadership committee. Apply today.
Each year, since 2009, ITE student chapters from Canada and the United States participate in a competition known as the ITE Collegiate Traffic Bowl. This competition features teams comprised of
As transportation technology continues to rapidly evolve and develop, New York City is rapidly approaching a world where autonomous vehicles are part and parcel of the urban mobility landscape. A
How do we know whether a section of the roadway is at high safety risk?
Historically, the answer has been relatively straightforward: we count the number of crashes at that location over a period of time and compare it to other roadway sections. If the roadway section of our interest contains a high number of crashes, we then decide what can be done, if anything, to lower the number of crashes.
This method has been the go-to method for safety evaluation for decades, and with good reason. The number of crashes (or other crash-based safety measures) at a roadway section is a fairly straightforward piece of evidence regarding its relative safety risk level.
There’s only one problem with it, which is that in order to obtain this data, we have to wait for crashes to happen.
But, thanks to big data, there is a different way to do things.
ITS New York held its 29th Annual Meeting and Technology Exhibition on Thursday, June 16 – Friday June 17, 2022 in Saratoga Springs, New York. C2SMART was well-represented at the event, with three student presenters and a booth where we were able to meet other attendees and discuss C2SMART’s work and ongoing projects.
C2SMART Director Kaan Ozbay, along with Senior Research Associate Jingqin Gao, were interviewed by IEEE Spectrum’s Dexter Johnson for the June 2022 issue, which features an article on C2SMART’s Mobility Dashboard called AI Tool for COVID Monitoring Offers Solution for Urban Congestion.
C2SMART proudly congratulates, and celebrates, Professor John Falcocchio for fifty years of service to NYU. Dr. Falcocchio has been professor of transportation planning and engineering since 1981.
This year, we congratulate all the transportation students who earned their degrees in 2022, with a special nod to those who earned them in 2020 and 2021, when ceremonies were not held in-person. We are excited to see what the future holds!
On Friday, April 29, NYU Tandon held its annual Research Excellence Exhibit, a public event that features exhibits that illustrate the scope of engineering and the applied sciences — and their potential for improving the world. The day-long program provides faculty and students with a platform to showcase the high-caliber, innovative work they’re doing. This year, four projects were selected to represent C2SMART at the Exhibit.
