Transportation Seminar Speaker Dr. Randall Guensler, Ph.D.


ABSTRACT: The Georgia Tech TRANSNET research team is developing a system model designed to minimize surface transportation energy use via centralized and distributed simulation modeling, data analytics, and participant interaction.  The research includes monitoring of real-time, system-wide, traffic conditions; creating a transportation network space-time memory; implementing pattern recognition to predict traffic responses to system perturbations; developing algorithms to predict in-flight travel times as congestion is evolving; delivering messages to participants to support pre-travel planning and demand-responsive decision making; and estimating energy consumption, travel time, and cost tradeoffs associated with observed changes in departure times, modes, routes, and ecodriving.

BIO: Randall Guensler is a Professor in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. After working for the California Air Resources Board for seven years, and completing his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering at the University of California at Davis, Dr. Guensler joined Georgia Tech in 1994. Since arriving at Georgia Tech, Dr. Guensler's main research focus has been the development of new monitoring and modeling tools to assess the air quality impacts of transportation policies.
