    A proper tire friction model is essential to model overall vehicle dynamics for simulation, analysis, or control purposes since a ground vehicle's motion is primarily determined by the friction forces transferred from roads via tires. Motivated by the developments of high-performance antilock brake systems (ABSs), traction control, and steering systems, significant research efforts had been put in... View full abstract»

    Driver-assistance systems that monitor driver intent, warn drivers of lane departures, or assist in vehicle guidance are all being actively considered. It is therefore important to take a critical look at key aspects of these systems, one of which is lane-position tracking. It is for these driver-assistance objectives that motivate the development of the novel "video-based lane estimation and trac... View full abstract»

    Stereo vision is an attractive passive sensing technique for obtaining three-dimensional (3-D) measurements. Recent hardware advances have given rise to a new class of real-time dense disparity estimation algorithms. This paper examines their suitability for intelligent vehicle (IV) applications. In order to gain a better understanding of the performance and the computational-cost tradeoff, the au... View full abstract»

    Most existing methods for truck route planning assume known static data in an environment that is time varying and uncertain by nature, which limits their widespread applicability. The development of intelligent transportation systems such as the use of information technologies reduces the level of uncertainties and makes the use of more appropriate dynamic formulations and solutions feasible.

    This paper presents a nonintrusive prototype computer vision system for monitoring a driver's vigilance in real time. It is based on a hardware system for the real-time acquisition of a driver's images using an active IR illuminator and the software implementation for monitoring some visual behaviors that characterize a driver's level of vigilance. Six parameters are calculated: Percent eye closur... View full abstract»

    Predicting a crash occurrence is the key to traffic safety. Real-time identification of freeway segments with high crash potential is addressed in this paper. For this study, historical crashes and corresponding traffic-surveillance data from loop detectors were gathered from a 36-mi corridor of Interstate 4 for 4 years. Following an exploratory analysis, two types of logistic-regression models (i... View full abstract»

    In this paper, longitudinal vehicle-following controllers for heavy trucks with different spacing policies are designed, analyzed, simulated, and experimentally tested, and their performance in mixed traffic with passenger vehicles is evaluated. A new vehicle-following controller for trucks, which has better properties than existing ones with respect to performance and impact on fuel economy and p... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a dynamic origin-destination (OD) estimation method to extract valuable point-to-point split-fraction information from automatic vehicle identification (AVI) counts without estimating market-penetration rates and identification rates of AVI tags. A nonlinear ordinary least-squares estimation model is presented to combine AVI counts, link counts, and historical demand informatio... View full abstract»

  • A robust model for optimal time-of-day speed control at highway work zones

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):115 - 123

    This paper proposes a new speed control strategy, named time-of-day speed limit (TOD SL) control, for highway work-zone operations. The main purposes of the TOD SL control are to overcome the difficulty in setting the optimal real-time speed limit due to the lack of detectors and to maximize the use of available data such as the historical volume data on the target work zone. Its core logic is to ... View full abstract»

    A new approach based on Bayesian networks for traffic flow forecasting is proposed. In this paper, traffic flows among adjacent road links in a transportation network are modeled as a Bayesian network. The joint probability distribution between the cause nodes (data utilized for forecasting) and the effect node (data to be forecasted) in a constructed Bayesian network is described as a Gaussian mi...
