ASU Transportation Engineering Seminar – September 25, 2015
Big data for transportation applications has been one of the hottest topics in the last several years and is believed to influence a significant change in the art of business in both industry and government sectors. Regarding transportation engineering practices, most of the limitations in the analytical techniques and tools are tied to the available data sources and big data has a positive impact on eliminating the limitations to a great extent. Dr. Paul will present case studies where the big data concept (utilizing emerging technologies) was adopted in
completion of his projects in the area of transportation operations and planning.
