Hi! We are Angela Lau, Jason Chen, and David Li. This summer, our team is working with Dr. Angshuman Guin from Georgia Tech’s School of Civil and Environmental Engineering on the Connected Vehicle Technology Master Plan based in Gwinnett County (a project of the Georgia Smart Communities Challenge).

The project vision is to:

  • Improve traffic congestion and reduce crashes
  • Set the standard for the application of connected vehicle technology
  • Have broad applicability across the Atlanta region and country
  • Support goals of the recent Comprehensive Transportation Plan, Connect Gwinnett Transit Plan, and Intelligent Transportation Systems Master Plan update

Our team will be focusing mainly on evaluating the potential for improvements in safety and operations of emergency response vehicles in and around Peachtree Industrial Boulevard corridor with Connected Vehicle technology deployment.

Over the course of this summer, we hope to analyze the reported data from the current fire truck deployments. We will employ data visualization, then filter the data, implement data fusion, and finally create path optimization in last 6 weeks. We hope to eventually display data publicly on a website in order to inform researchers and the public about where emergency vehicles experience the most delays/congestion.
