Dion to present evaluation of IntelliDrive probe vehicle data

October 11, 2009

Francois Dion, assistant research scientist and lead researcher in UMTRI's Transportation Systems Group, will present "Evaluation of Generation and Usability of IntelliDrive Probe Vehicle Data" on Wednesday, October 14 at 4:10 p.m. The presentation will take place in room 1680 of the Industrial and Operations Engineering (IOE) building on U-M's north campus.

IntelliDrive applications attempt to improve the mobility and safety of urban and rural travel, as well as the operations of transportation networks, by enabling vehicles to communicate wirelessly with roadside infrastructure and other vehicles.

One of the important underlying capabilities of the proposed IntelliDrive system is the ability to collect and aggregate operational data from equipped vehicles traveling on roadways. This data is expected to provide a rich database from which vehicle movements and traffic flow behavior could be observed.

Dion's presentation will outline the results of various research projects being conducted at UMTRI to assess the quality and usability of traffic data that would be collected under currently recommended system architecture and data generation policies.

The presentation is part of the IOE 899 seminar series. For more information, visit the IOE website.
