    The Highway Capacity Manual provides a method for determining the level of service (LOS) on freeways to evaluate freeway performance. Apart from being essentially an off-line decision support tool for planning and design, it is also based on point measurements from loop detectors, which may not provide an accurate assessment of freeway section performance. In order to meet user requirements of adv... View full abstract»

    A real-time laser-based nonintrusive detection system has been developed for the measurement of true travel time of vehicles on the highway. The detection system uses a laser line that is projected onto the ground as a probe. The reflected light is collected and focused into a photodiode array by an optical system. Vehicle presence is detected based on the absence of reflected laser light. By plac... View full abstract»

    This paper presents methods for collecting and analyzing physiological data during real-world driving tasks to determine a driver's relative stress level. Electrocardiogram, electromyogram, skin conductance, and respiration were recorded continuously while drivers followed a set route through open roads in the greater Boston area. Data from 24 drives of at least 50-min duration were collected for ... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a vision-based method to automatically detect individuals loitering about inner-city bus stops. Using a stationary camera view of a bus stop, pedestrians are segmented and tracked throughout the scene. The system takes snapshots of individuals when a clean, nonobstructed view of a pedestrian is found. The snapshots are then used to classify the individual images into a database...

    Airports, especially busy hub airports, proved to be the bottleneck resources in the air traffic control system. How to carry out arrival scheduling and sequencing effectively and efficiently is one of main concerns to improve the safety, capacity, and efficiency of the airports. This paper introduces the concept of receding horizon control (RHC) to the problem of arrival scheduling and sequencing... View full abstract»

    Motor vehicles greatly influence human life but are also a major cause of death and road congestion, which is an obstacle to future economic development. We believe that by learning driving patterns, useful navigation support can be provided for drivers. In this paper, we present a simple and reliable method for the recognition of driving events using hidden Markov models (HMMs), popular stochasti... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we present a novel combined sensor registration and fusion approach for cooperative driving in intelligent transportation systems (ITSs). A realistic augmented registration and fusion-state space model in three dimensions is first developed for dissimilar sensors. In order to have unbiased sensor registration parameter estimates, the expectation-maximization (EM) algorithm is incorp... View full abstract»

    A methodology to design the range policy of adaptive cruise control vehicles and its companion servoloop control algorithm is presented in this paper. A nonlinear range policy for improved traffic flow stability and string stability is proposed and its performance is compared against the constant time headway policy, the range policy employed by human drivers, and the Greenshields policy. The prop... View full abstract»
