Join us to discuss the emerging role of technology as it relates to transportation.
The second seminar in the CEAA Smart Cities series will focus on Smart Transportation to illustrate how high tech programs in this region help our daily lives and keep businesses moving.
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) applies advanced technologies of electronics, communications, computers, control and sensing and detecting to all kinds of transportation systems in order to improve safety, efficiency, service, and traffic situations by operating on real-time information. The objectives of ITS include improved traffic safety, less traffic congestion, improved transportation efficiency, reduced air pollution, and increased energy efficiency. ITS also helps to promote the development of related industries. There is full range of high tech infrastructure in the New York Metropolitan Region to provide vital information to travelers, freight and transit operators, government agencies, and others to manage traffic and make this complex region moving and safe.
You will hear from a panel of Cornell Engineering faculty and alumni including Dr. Linda Nozick, Dr. Ricardo Daziano, James Chiao MS CEE '83, John Foote '74 and Robert Jaffe '76.
