The fly-by system consists of a “flock” of interconnected, self-managed drones equipped with lightweight navigation, and perching mechanism allows the drone to record videos from fixed points. Image processing techniques are used to detect traffic parameters from the recorded videos. On the other hand, Traffic simulations models will be utilized to develop the database necessary in developing and training the Traffic Model-Based Image Processing (T-MBIP) algorithm. These simulations are focused on traffic congestions. Once the traffic parameters are detected it will be compared with the congestion case to obtain if the congestion is approached or not.

A lane-changing algorithm was developed for connected autonomous vehicles (CAVs) to avoid the regular human-driven vehicles (HVs); through simulations, the lane-changing algorithm was verified to accelerate both CAVs and HVs. Furthermore, in a transportation system that CAVs and HVs mix together, the macroscopic characteristics of urban streets were analyzed theoretically. Finally, by utilizing the macroscopic characteristics of a traffic network, the method of building new roads when necessary was established.

Evidence-based research from the public health profession has determined adverse factors associated with the built environment, transportation system, urban land use patterns, and travel mode choices are contributing to declining public health and rising healthcare costs in U.S. metropolitan areas. The objective of this project was to develop a multidisciplinary graduate-level course addressing the intersection between public health, transportation and the built environment. This course focused on establishing basis of need for and potential benefits from implementation of optimal solutions to the challenging dilemma of how the built environment impacts urban mobility, transportation infrastructure, network connectivity, sustainability, livability, and public health. Interconnections between the fields of physical activity, public health, public policy and engineering planning and design will be identified. The goal was for students with diverse backgrounds, in a variety of academic fields, to be able to evaluate urban, suburban communities, and neighborhoods to identify positive and adverse effects of the built environment on levels of physical activity and measures of public health, with an emphasis on adoption of polices and approaches for improving desirable outcomes supporting healthier communities.
