Pedestrians and Bicyclists Call for the Innovations of Smart Transportation Technology for a Better Safety and Mobility

Pedestrians and Bicyclists Call for the Innovations of Smart Transportation Technology for a Better Safety and Mobility

Although bicycling and walking were not used extensively as travel modes before, they have been showing a fast increasing trend of being adopted and used for recent years according to transportation data. More people would like to bike or walk to commute, for exercise, or just for fun, due to the well-known health, environmental and economic benefits. This change is transforming transportation towards multimodal systems supporting a more livable,

Big Data Driven Smart Transportation: the Underlying Story of IoT Transformed Mobility

Big Data Driven Smart Transportation: the Underlying Story of IoT Transformed Mobility

Growing of smart IoT has generated many major impacts on transportation development, of which one underlying big story is the thriving of big data driven smart transportation nowadays. We are moving from IT to data technology (DT) time, and we are entering a “results driven” era in transportation. As the front and center of the smart IoT transformed mobility, transportation data sets grow rapidly while they are increasingly gathered from more con

Presented our Work on smart IoT prototype for transportation at TRB 96th Annual Meeting

We presented our work on a smart IoT prototype for transportation at 96th Transportation Research Board (TRB) Annual Meeting. This technique can be combined with the smart traffic signals to gain more potential in achieving safer and more efficient urban mobility. Making inappropriate driving decisions at signalized intersections is one of the major reasons causing accidents. In this paper, the authors present an integrated in-vehicle decision su

Smart IoT in Transit Service: the Gateway to Improve Public Transportation

Smart IoT in Transit Service: the Gateway to Improve Public Transportation

Smart Internet of Things (IoT) in transit service has public transits connected to the networks accessible via internet. The networks connect to each other also the external environment to share data picked up by sensors on the transits themselves, offering many benefits to improve public transportation. Supported by the smart IoT connectivity integrated with Artificial Intelligence (AI), various on-board systems for transit vehicles have emerged

Presented our work on data-driven smart mobility at the Workshop on Smart Cities & Connected Communities

We presented our work on data-driven smart mobility at the Workshop on Smart Cities & Connected Communities. This Workshop aims to bring together leaders in community and economic development, government, science, and technology to chart a course for future R&D investment and build collaborative private, non-profit, and public sector partnerships that address sustainability challenges for livable communities. Our work combined social medi

Unlocking the Potentials of Smart IoT with LPWA Technologies

Unlocking the Potentials of Smart IoT with LPWA Technologies

Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) Networks are the key unlocking the enormous potential of smart Machine-to-Machine (M2M) applications and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. Experts predict that the global market of LPWAN will grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 89.3% from 2016 through 2021.  As the technology working virtually with LPWAN, Narrow Band (NB) and Long Range (LoRa) IoT offers a number of significant benefits in terms of costs,

Key Applications of the Smart IoT to Transform Transportation

Key Applications of the Smart IoT to Transform Transportation

The applications of the Internet of Things (IoT) have been growing dramatically in recent a few years. According to IDC, the transportation sector will be among the first to see a significant growth from the IoT, and the global IoT market in the transportation sector is expected to reach $195 billion by 2020. The smart IoT is dramatically accelerating the pace of innovation and transforming the way of operations in transportation and infrastructu
