Research and Field Testing of Vehicle-Traffic Control with Limited-Capacity Connected/Automated Vehicles

This project aims to extend and field-test CAV-based traffic signal/vehicle control methods developed by the research team in previous projects to understand and quantify the benefits of CAV-based control in the real world.

A Multiscale Simulation Platform for Connected and Automated Transportation Systems

Traffic simulation is an important tool that can assist researchers, analysts, and policymakers to test vehicle/traffic control algorithms, gain insights of micro/macro traffic dynamics, and design traffic management strategies. However, different implementations require different simulation scales and there is no multiscale simulation platform that satisfies all requirements. In this research, we propose to establish a multiscale vehicle-traffic-demand (VTD) simulation platform for connected and automated transportation systems (CATS).
