Transforming a City's Transportation Infrastructure through an Embedded Pervasive Communication Network


Contracting Agency: National Science Foundation
Principal Investigator: Shigang Chen, Ph.D.
Co-Principle Investigator: Yafeng Yin, Ph.D.
 

The project is to develop the enabling technologies for transforming the streets of a city—a pervasive transportation infrastructure—into a hybrid transportation/communication system, called the Intelligent Road (iRoad).  The goal is to establish the theories and protocols for a high-speed, pervasive, wireless platform that can lead to transformative changes in the way the transportation monitoring and control functions are designed, managed and operated.  The iRoad system is able to fuse the traffic information from all over the city to make a wide range of new applications possible, including real-time traffic map, online best-route query, intelligent fuel-efficient vehicles, coordinated traffic signal control, remote accident assessment, criminal pursuit, and emergence services.  In order for iRoad to support the above applications, we must solve an array of difficult technical problems.  One of the major challenges is to establish the engineering framework that can efficiently leverage the iRoad's capabilities for the next-generation transportation management systems.
