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 three active research projects by the group, all of which are in collaboration with the Intelligent Transport Systems Laboratory, National Center for Transportation Studies, College of Engineering, UPD:

1. Cyber-Physical Transportation Systems (CPTS)

Harvey Ian Arbas, Anjilo Carigma, John Justine Villar, PhD, Jaymar Soriano, PhD and Adrian Roy Valdez, PhD

This project tries to design an intelligent land vehicle control system with advanced computing and sensing capabilities to improve safety and throughput to meet increasing transportation demands. The SCL team is working under the Software Development and R&D components of the project, where they calibrate models of macroscopic traffic demand and traffic intersection optimization.

2. Enhancement of a Transportation Management Suite (E-TraMS)

Harvey Ian Arbas, John Justine S. Villar, PhD and Adrian Roy Valdez, PhD

This DOST-funded project aim to create a microscopic traffic simulator with the Filipino behavior factored in, as well as to model Filipino driver's behavior.

3. Maritime Transportation Information Systems (MARIS)

John Justine Villar, PhD, Jaymar Soriano, PhD and Adrian Roy Valdez, PhD

This project addresses the areas of intelligent transport systems for maritime industry in the Philippines through the development and deployment of software and tools needed for a prototype forecasting system. In particular, the project targets the operation of the software components by developing and designing modular offline mechanisms for an effective Route Capacity Measurement System.
