In this project, the research team will propose a simulation-based approach for the evaluation of traffic control algorithms that will utilize CV technologies. Given the ongoing CV pilot deployment in NYC, the proposed project will tie in to the objectives set out to be achieved as a part of the NYC CV pilot. The City College of New York (CCNY) team will work with NYU and UW researchers to test the models and algorithms in microsimulation and hardware-in-the loop simulations on a NYC-specific network.
This project aims to quantify the various safety, environmental and financial benefits of connected vehicle technologies applied to the New York City municipal fleet.
This perception of transit can be captured through the sentiment of posts made by users on social media. Performance metrics based on user perception can provide the service provider a customer-facing view of their service and help enhance their service and address the user concerns, especially from a public health standpoint in a post-COVID lockdown world, appropriately.
