Project Details

Project Description: 

With the rapid advancement in vehicle and communication technologies, transportation professionals will be able to attain important information from moving vehicles to study and address a wide range of issues. With funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation, there are several ongoing activities attempting to define, learn, and collect mobile data that are available currently and in the future. The primary objective of this research is to examine and gain a better understating of mobile data, current and in the future, that can be used to enhance the weather-responsive traffic management models.

Goals

The primary objective of this research is to examine and gain a better understating of mobile data, current and in the future, that can be used to enhance the weather-responsive traffic management models. Further, a set of procedures needs to be developed for incorporating mobile data to existing weather-responsive traffic management models and tools.
