Modeling Emerging Freight Planning Problems and Effectively Communicating Results to Stakeholders

FMRI & Co-hosted by the ITE FAU Student Chapter
November 21, 2022, 12 PM (ET)
Florida Atlantic University, Engineering East Building, Room 303C
Online (FAU Webex Meetings)

In this presentation that is geared towards students and young researchers, we will understand the necessary ingredients of a good scientific inquiry, performing research and most importantly understand how to communicate the results effectively to stakeholders and decision-makers. The example case studies will be based on practice oriented research by using various tools in the armory of freight modelers and researchers, ranging from multi-resolution modeling, simulations to interactive data visualizations.

Safety at Highway-Rail Crossings

FMRI & Co-hosted by the WTS FAU Student Chapter
September 14, 2022, 12 PM (ET)
Florida Atlantic University, Engineering East Building, Room 405
Online (FAU Webex Meetings)

In this presentation, Dr. Khattak will discuss traffic safety at highway-rail crossings in the US. These are important junctions in the transportation network where traffic crashes are more severe than crashes elsewhere on the surface transportation system. Disruptions, such as traffic crashes, at highway-rail crossings can impact the movement of people and freight on both highway and rail networks. As such, the implications of traffic crashes at these nodes are significant. Dr. Khattak will discuss recent trends in safety at highway-rail crossings in the US and present research projects undertaken to improve safety at these locations. Presented by Dr. Aemal Khattak, Professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Truck Parking Concerns in Miami-Dade County

FMRI & Co-hosted by the WTS FAU Student Chapter
June 22, 2022, 12 PM (ET)
Online (FAU Zoom Meetings)

In this presentation the issues facing the freight truck industry in Miami-Dade County will be discussed, and specifically the lack of available truck parking and how that affects the region's supply chain. Presented by Ms. Aileen Bouclé, Executive Director for the Miami-Dade Transportation Planning Organization (TPO).

Improving Freight Investment Decision-Making with Big Data and Effective Communication Techniques

FMRI & Co-hosted by the ITE FAU Student Chapter
May 5, 2022, 11:30 AM (ET)
Florida Atlantic University, Engineering East Building, Room 405

This presentation will discuss why it is important to conduct freight system performance analyses as well as the types of data and communication / visualization techniques from a sampling of projects that can be used to inform freight investment decision-making. The presentation will also discuss the rise of e-commerce, the associated strains that are placed on the transportation system, and the related opportunities for innovative solutions such as the need for curb management and technological solutions that can provide freight data in the future. Presented by Dr. Bill Eisele, Senior Research Engineer and Mobility Division Head at the Texas A&M Transportation Institute.

Novel Traffic Sensing Methods and Technologies for Non-Motorized Traffic Monitoring under Challenging Scenarios

FMRI & Co-hosted by the WTS FAU Student Chapter
February 23, 2022, 10 AM (ET)
Online (FAU Cisco Webex Meetings)

Traffic sensing is essential for collecting real-time traffic data to feed data-driven traffic control, management and modeling. The existing sensing methods and technologies work properly well for motorized traffic monitoring. However, it is still a big challenge for sensing non-motorized travelers and transit riders in today’s practice with existing traffic sensing technologies. In this presentation, Dr. Pu will introduce the novel sensing methods and technologies for non-motorized traffic monitoring using computer vision and wireless sensing technologies. Multiple challenging scenarios are identified in the research, including low-illumination conditions, limited computational resources of edge device, pedestrian re-identification, multi-task sensing, etc. Presented by Dr. Ziyuan Pu, Assistant Professor at Monash University.

Where is my shipment and when will I get it?

FMRI & Co-hosted by the ITE FAU Student Chapter
February 9, 2022, 7 PM (ET)
Online (FAU Cisco Webex Meetings)

The supply chain represents the steps it takes to get the product or service from its original state to the customer. It represents a crucial process and therefore lower transportation costs and faster production cycles must be obtained. However, during this process, different issues might occur. Based on these current supply chain issues, the presentation examines the underlying reasons for the situation, the root cause of the situation, the impacts of the supply chain meltdown, and what can be done to address the situation. Presented by Mr. Charles H.W. Edwards, Professor of the Practice at UNC-Chapel Hill.
