“Innovative Methodologies for Large-scale Stochastic Dynamic Transportation Network Systems” presented by Dr. S. Travis Waller.
Abstract: This talk summarizes certain classes of existing state-of-the-art transport network modelling tools and provides an insight into the next set of emerging techniques. A brief overview of ongoing research activities is discussed including network assignment, mesoscopic traffic modelling and dynamic network routing. Further, recent research developments related to stochastic routing and adaptive equilibria will be presented in the context of real-time traffic behaviour in the presence of information. New algorithms for the online shortest path problem form the core methodological contribution for the new models as well as a resulting set of convex mathematical programs which provide novel application insights.
Research: Prof. S. Travis Waller is the Evans & Peck Professor of Transport Innovation and Director of the Research Centre for Integrated Transportation Innovation (rCITI) at UNSW in Civil and Environmental Engineering (arriving in 2011). He began his academic career at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and subsequently joined the University of Texas at Austin (where he was promoted to Associate and then Full Professor). Prof. Waller was named one of the top 100 young (under 35) innovators in science and engineering in the world in 2003 by MIT’s Technology Review magazine, was awarded the National Science Foundation’s CAREER award in 2004, received TRB’s Fred Burggraf research award in 2009 and the 2011 Hojjat Adeli Award for Innovation in Computing.
