Wearables to Command More Access and Inclusion in a Smarter Transportation System

This project will increase the safety profile and ease-of-use of the VISION (Visually Impaired Smart Service System for Spatial Intelligence and Onboard Navigation) platform toward ‘connected’ dynamic navigation in complex urban environments, providing a new level of security to the end user and permitting one to break down significant barriers to employment and social interaction.

Design of Resilient Smart Highway Systems with Data-Driven Monitoring from Networked Cameras

This project aims to develop a systematic way to design smart highway systems with networked video monitoring and control resiliency against environment disruptions and sensor failures. The research team will investigate deep learning methods for extracting fine-grained local categorical traffic information from surveillance videos and novel graph neural network methods to correlate and propagate the local information through the highway network for global states estimation, such as vehicle tracking and reidentification or traffic prediction in an unobserved area.
