ISU Big Data Seminar
Dec. 4th, 2017, 12:10pm – 1:00pm CT
Presenter: Dr. Anuj Sharma | Iowa State University
Title: Application of Big Data Analytics in Transportation
Abstract: Currently several DOTs in the United States have the ability to monitor virtually every road segment using probe vehicle based travel time information provided by third party providers, along with the traditional infrastructure mounted sensor. The rate of collection of such data is poised to increase, with community based sensing such as Waze, instrumentation of AVL systems in DOT vehicles and collection of camera images, and with advent of vehicle to infrastructure communications. This talk will highlight Big-data tools that can be used to timely analyze this data and perform real-time assessment and prediction of traffic conditions to improve system efficiency and safety, real-time identification of traffic incidents, and as input to future planning.
