Safety Management

Using Topological Data Analysis to determine better directions for financial investment.

When considering serious problems such as the safety of pedestrians and/or motorists, or mitigating excessive traffic in areas where there is no room for expansion and multiple transportation types are used, the amount of data that needs to be processed in order to properly predict what types of projects would be the most effective is voluminous. Currently there are any number of ways that the data can be analyzed.... more »

Rollers on guide rails

Understanding the Impact of Transportation Network Companies on Conventional Transit in NJ In Reserve

The rapid growth of transportation network companies (TNC) in the US has prompted some researchers/planners to predict a future marked by coordinated services provided by TNCs and transit agencies that would benefit TNCs, transit agencies, and people at large. However, it has also led others to predict the annihilation of conventional public transit by TNCs because of the convenience of the latter. It has thus become... more »

New Transit Model Needed In Reserve

The classic model of a train stopping at different stations along its track is no longer feasible in a state as densely populated as New Jersey. Technology is now at a point where we can adopt a model that has been suggested for decades in different forms, but until recently, it was not technologically feasible. The electric car model of having the batteries and motors built into the floor of the vehicle would allow... more »
