Collaborative Multimodal Decision-making with Advanced Transportation Technologies and Computing

Friday, December 18, 2020, 1:00 - 2:00 pm

Presenter: 
Hyoshin (John) Park, Assistant Professor,Department of Computational Science and Engineering, N.C. A&T State University

Topics to be covered:
This talk will focus on LEarning, Active sensing, Robust optimizatioN (LEARN) of transportation system and users, while probabilistic modeling addresses the computational burden. Optimal solutions for various transportation problems will be shown based on realistic simulation considering travelers dynamically changing choices under uncertainty and availability of information.

Mobility, Fairness & Accessibility for Vulnerable Road Users in Socio-Technical  Systems with Advanced Transportation

May 1, 2020, 1:00-2:30 pm

Yeohno Seong and Sun Yi, both researchers at N.C. A&T State University moderated the discussion. Virtually all of the research on autonomous vehicles to date has focused on the technical requirements of the mechanics of successfully constructing driverless vehicles. Very few studies have looked at the role of human citizens and vulnerable road users in society interacting with autonomous vehicles. Therefore, in this webinar, we will initiate a constructive discussion platform in which humans are given priority consideration before the technology in an effort to “fit the machine to human” rather than the other way around.

Low Speed Autonomous Vehicles - Real World Implementation

April 30, 2020, 2:00-3:00 pm 

VTTI researchers, Andrew Aldin and Kevin Grove, reported on their experience with the implementation of a Low Speed Autonomous Vehicle (LSAV) at a public test site in Blacksburg, VA. The LSAV shuttle was deployed to support CATM’s  Automated Last Mile Connectivity for Vulnerable Road Users research project.

The shuttle links the VTTI campus to a nearby bus transit stop and operates in traffic lanes shared with road users ranging from pedalcyclists to heavy vehicles. Presenters will speak on topics such as infrastructure preparation, regulatory issues, technological challenges, passenger safety, and vehicle operations including operator training.

Transportation Awareness Day

April 9, 2019, 8:30 am - 5:30 pm 

On April 9, 2019, the North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University Transportation Institute and  the Center for Advanced Transportation Mobility hosted its first annual Transportation Awareness Day (TAD).  The event ran from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and was located at the BB&T Stadium on the university's campus.  With free admission and open to the general public, the event was attended by over 3000 youth, who ranged  from third grade to high school students, from 34 local schools. TAD premiered in conjunction with  N.C.  A&T s 10th annual Energy Day, which featured the Oak Ridge National Lab Traveling Science Fair.
