Adaptation of Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) Standards for Autonomous Enforcement on the BQE Smart Urban Roadway Testbed

Adaptation of Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) Standards for Autonomous Enforcement on the BQE Smart Urban Roadway Testbed This webinar presents the latest research progress on the C2SMART Urban Roadway Testbed. C2SMART/RIME team has been collaborating with NYCDOT and Kistler Instrument Corporation (KIC) to establish a new smart roadway testbed along the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (BQE) corridor. The BQE…

Autonomous Driving and Energy-Efficient Traffic Smoothing

Autonomous Driving and Energy-Efficient Traffic Smoothing Professor Benedetto Piccoli presents some revised recent results on wave dissipation via autonomous vehicles and assisted driving. Simulation and experimental successes paved the road to target large-scale impact. Then, a highway level project is discussed together with the many existing challenges. Finally, a math perspective of the tools available…

Edge Computing for Safer and Smarter Transportation Applications

Edge Computing for Safer and Smarter Transportation Applications Sensors are essential for the intelligence needed by smart cities, particularly smart transportation applications, and have been increasingly deployed over the past decade. Although these sensors are capable of collecting a substantial amount of data, the bandwidth and cost constraints of the communication network may not allow…
