WIOMAX has participated as an transportation action cluster in the Global City Teams Challenge (GCTC) program. GCTC is a collaborative platform organized by National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for the development of smart cities and connected communities. The
Operations are important for maintaining daily functions of a bikeshare system (BSS). Here, we analyze and try to measure the efficiency of operating activities of bikeshare through data analytics. We take the valet and corral service as an example of
In this blog, we use data visualization and data analytics to provide some basic understandings of the origin-destination (O-D) flows between stations in a bike-sharing system. Part of this blog is adapted from the following research paper: X. Xie and Z.
Here are some recent case studies that WIOMAX researchers and engineers have done on smart transportation and road safety studies.
In urban mobility, travel or trip speed is important. For each bicycle trip, its bikeshare use time provides an upper bound of travel time. Particularly, for the utilitarian O-D trips, the bikeshare use time approaches the travel time if there

Our work on a smart IoT prototype for road safety appears on Transportation Research Part C: Emerging Technologies. X. Xie and Z. Wang, “SIV-DSS: Smart in-vehicle decision support system for driving at signalized intersections with V2I communication,” Transportation Research Part
Representing WIOMAX, the CoFounder Dr. Wang has participated the National Science Foundation (NSF) workshop “Public Access to Research Data” to share our findings and knowledge on how to promote public access making research data more useful while without adding extra
WIOMAX has joined the national Road to Zero Coalition, a partnership between public and private entities dedicated to eliminating traffic deaths by 2050. Highway traffic safety is a serious issue raising increased public concerns. In USA, 35,092 people died and
