Intelligent Transport Systems

Welcome to the SCL Intelligent Transport Systems 
Research Interest Group Page!


This is one of the research interest groups in SCL which is working on different approaches and trends in transport and traffic research and technology, aiming to solve escalating problems of congestions, pollution, transport efficiency, safety and security of passengers and goods.

Research Projects

Currently, there are four active research projects by the group (AY 2015-2016), all of which are in collaboration with Dr. Hilario Sean Palmiano, Ph.D.
 of the National Center for Transportation Studies, College of Engineering, UPD:

1. Cyber-Physical Transportation Systems
Harvey Ian Arbas, Anjilo Carigma, John Justine Villar, PhD and Adrian Roy Valdez, PhD

2. Traffic Simulation based on Filipino Driving Behavior 
Elemar Teje and Adrian Roy ValdezPhD
This study aims to incorporate Filipino traffic behavior to understand traffic dynamics in the Philippines.

3. Modeling and Simulation of  Traffic Conditions in Intersections
Maria April Rose Andaca, Jerwin Lloyd Cruda and Adrian Roy ValdezPhD
A traffic computer simulator is created to minimize on-road testing and speed up gathering of information for various traffic proposals. Current traffic models for car following and lane changing were improved to take into account Filipino traffic behaviors. A new model, which uses time as basis of comparison, were also created to handle motions on traffic intersections. Statistical testing and comparison on actual traffic data should be completed to affirm the validity of the said models in the real world.

4. LocalSIM 
Harvey Ian Arbas, Anjilo Carigma, Patrick Rollan and Adrian Roy Valdez, PhD
This DOST-funded project aim to create traffic simulator with the Filipino behavior factored in, as well as to model Filipino driver's behavior.

5. PhilMATIS 
This DOST-funded project aims to develop and pilot-test an advanced traveler information system (ATIS) that will measure and record traffic volume and incidence of flooding along major roads in Metro Manila. Using videos, we compute the speed of vehicles in real time. The system also does flood monitoring.
