Research Projects

Past projects

Easing urban congestion through intelligent use of distributed information.

Smart use of real-time information provided by intelligent transport systems can ease urban congestion. While sensing and communication technologies appear to be mature, there remain fundamental mathematical challenges in designing a low-cost distributed system. This project will develop a mathematical framework for designing and analysing a distributed mechanism that predicts and wirelessly disseminates urban road traffic congestion. Such a mechanism couples the communication, prediction and route selection policy to load-balance traffic in urban networks.
