RESEARCH AREAS OF SPECIALTY

The use of driving simulators to conduct traffic engineering studies to enhance the operation and safety of highways and streets. Transportation evacuation under hurricane threats has gotten my attention in the last two years. I also conducted research in numerous transportation applications including Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), highway safety, computer simulation of traffic flow and operations, transportation of hazardous materials and hazardous wastes including nuclear spent fuels, and regional freight transportation modeling.

CATTS

The TEA 21 Bill authorized the establishment of 13 new transportation centers under the University Transportation Centers (UTC) program of the Research and Special Program Administration (RSPA). TheUniversity of Central Florida was listed in the bill as one of the 23 universities. The bill appropriates an annual support of $300,000 per year for the first two years, $500,000 per for the third and fourth years, and $1 million per year for years 5 and 6. Funding for years 5 and 6 are on a competitive basis.

The center is called Center for Advanced Transportation Systems Simulation (CATSS ). The theme of this center is to apply computer simulation, driving simulators, virtual reality, wireless communication and other advanced technologies to enhance the planning, design, operation, management, and safety of transportation systems. This theme will complement and support two key national transportation issues namely “Intelligent Transportation Systems”, and “Human-Centered Systems”.
