    An urban network of signalized intersections can be suitably modeled as a hybrid system, in which the vehicle flow behavior is described by means of a time-driven model and the traffic light dynamics are represented by a discrete event model. In this paper, a model of such a network via hybrid Petri nets is used to state and solve the problem of coordinating several traffic lights with the aim of ... View full abstract»

    An enhanced 0-1 mixed-integer linear programming formulation based on the cell-transmission model is proposed for the traffic signal optimization problem. This formulation has several features that are currently unavailable in other existing models developed with a similar approach, including the components for handling the number of stops, fixed or dynamic cycle length and splits, and lost time. ...

    We have proposed to use the method of principal curves to describe and analyze the interaction among freeway traffic-stream variables and their joint behaviors without utilizing conventional assumptions made on the functional forms of interactions, as in previous studies. As a nonparameter modeling approach, the performance of the proposed method depends only on the data used and involves no assum... View full abstract»

    This work presents the simulator of intelligent transportation systems (SITS). The SITS is based on a microscopic simulation approach to reproduce real traffic conditions in an urban or nonurban network and considers different types of vehicles, drivers, and roads. A dynamical analysis of several traffic phenomena is then addressed. The results of using classical system theory tools notes that it ... View full abstract»

    Travel time is a fundamental measure in transportation. Accurate travel-time prediction also is crucial to the development of intelligent transportation systems and advanced traveler information systems. We apply support vector regression (SVR) for travel-time prediction and compare its results to other baseline travel-time prediction methods using real highway traffic data. Since support vector m...

    When the circulatory roadway of a roundabout has more than two lanes, the vehicles' weaving and merging cause large traffic and safety problems. In this paper, a new method of traffic-signal control for modern roundabouts is proposed to solve problems by eliminating the conflict points and weaving sections at a roundabout with different traffic-flow rates on each approach, which normally appear in...

    The congestion of our infrastructure, particularly (urban) motorways, continues to increase. Efficient planning, for instance in freight transport, is hindered by the resulting unreliability of travel times. Another effect of this congestion is a reduced utilization rate of the road. This work presents trip booking, a method aimed at improvement of the reliability of travel times as well as an inc... View full abstract»

    Road detection is a key issue for autonomous driving in urban traffic. In this paper, after a brief overview of existing methods, we present a road-area detection algorithm based on color images. This algorithm is composed of two modules: boundaries are first estimated based on the intensity image and road areas are subsequently detected based on the full color image. In the first module, an edge ... View full abstract»

    It is important to understand the factors underlying grade-crossing crashes and to examine potential solutions. We have installed a camera in front of a locomotive to examine grade-crossing accidents (or near accidents). We present a computer vision system that automatically extracts possible near-accident scenes by detecting the activity of vehicles crossing in front of the train after signals ar...

    Color- and edge-based trackers can often be "distracted", causing them to track the wrong object. Many researchers have dealt with this problem by using multiple features, as it is unlikely that all will be distracted at the same time. It is also important for the tracker to maintain multiple hypotheses for the state; sequential Monte Carlo filters have been shown to be a convenient and straightfo... View full abstract»

    Intervehicle communication (IVC) networks, a subclass of mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), have no fixed infrastructure and instead rely on the nodes themselves to provide network functionality. However, due to mobility constraints, driver behavior, and high mobility, IVC networks exhibit characteristics that are dramatically different from many generic MANETs. This paper elicits these differences ... View full abstract»
