INTRODUCTION AND RESEARCH FOCUS

Hi! I am a Professor of Civil Engineering in the Transportation and Infrastructure Systems (TIS) group at Purdue University. My broad research interests include: (i) “system of systems” paradigms for the planning, analysis, design, operation and security of infrastructure systems, (ii) modeling linkages across multiple infrastructure systems, (iii) holistic systems-based modeling for disaster management and associated strategic planning, (iv) systems approaches to address a broad range of generalized transportation/traffic/logistics problems, (v) modeling human behavior/learning to understand transportation/traffic performance and develop control strategies, (vi) use of information and sensor technologies for the real-time operation of large-scale dynamic traffic networks, (vii) computational intelligence and agent-based techniques to address complex self-organizing systems, (viii) application of operations research, mathematical programming, and classical control theory to large-scale dynamic traffic networks, (ix) computer simulation modeling for Intelligent Transportation Systems applications, (x) computational aspects and environments for real-time control architectures, and (xi) application of operations research  to urban service systems.

My research can generally be characterized as the use of operations research, control theory, and computational intelligence techniques to model and/or analyze a broad range of problems characterized by the need for a systems perspective. A common thread across most of this research is the lack of well-behaved properties for the system addressed, leading to a class of messy problems mathematically. Consequently, the work primarily involves computational intelligence techniques, meta-heuristics, and simulation to solve large-scale stochastic optimization and/or control problems to plan, operate, design, and evaluate the associated systems. The methodologies used include nonconvex nonsmooth optimization, simulation-based optimization, hybrid optimization, a priori optimization, hierarchical optimization, neural networks, simulated annealing, fuzzy logic, agent-based simulation, adaptive control, robust control, real-time control, and dynamical systems. Another common characteristic of a lot of my research is the need to generate real-time solutions. This entails the development of algorithms that are computationally efficient and the exploration of computing environments that enable high performance computing. In this context, the associated research has explored distributed computing algorithms and environments, and we have developed a Beowulf supercomputing cluster.

Recent research interests include:

  • developing insights, analyzing issues, and addressing strategies for the efficient on-line operation and control of large-scale dynamic traffic networks under information systems (and other advanced technologies under the aegis of Advanced Traffic Management Systems and Advanced Traveler Information Systems).
  • modeling real-time driver behavior under en-route information provision using computational intelligence and game theoretic techniques.
  • the treatment of infrastructure interdependencies through computational intelligence and agent-based techniques. This project is the first step toward developing both a comprehensive theory of infrastructure network design and a new generation of infrastructure decision support systems capable of identifying and promoting synergies among individual network layers.
  • addressing issues and methodologies related to congestion and incident management in transportation systems.

 

I head a research group called Architectures and Concepts for Telematics and Informatics in On-line Networks (ACTION) at Purdue University. It aims at developing, integrating, and deploying computationally efficient algorithms and associated internet-based control architectures for responding to dynamic traffic phenomena in real time. The computing architecture consists of a Linux-based environment supported by several intel-based microprocessors connected to form a Beowulf Cluster supercomputing environment. Dynamic Traffic Assignment forms the core methodological backbone of the implementation. ACTION addresses research topics in the areas of the on-line deployment of ATMS/ATIS technologies in large-scale dynamic traffic networks: (i) real-time information dissemination using multi-media, (ii) consistency, (iii) robustness, (iv) stability, (v) driver behavior, (vi) efficient deployment computing architectures, (vii) internet-based control architectures, (viii) off-line and on-line calibration and validation of on-line networks, and (ix) network performance evaluation under alternative technologies.

RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research interests are in the area of transportation systems analysis, with emphasis on the mathematical and simulation modeling and analysis of dynamic system performance in general networks with advanced information systems and technologies (Advanced Traveler Information Systems and Advanced Traffic Management Systems), and the application of operations research  and systems theory to urban service systems.  Current research topics include robust and efficient control models for on-line operations of large-scale dynamic traffic networks, on-line stochastic dynamic traffic assignment, neural network based incident detection algorithms, driver behavior and information systems for incident management, congestion management systems, dynamic analysis of transportation networks, distributed computing based on-line traffic algorithms for networks under advanced information systems, and evaluation of impacts of Intelligent Transportation Systems.

Recent research on the use of information technology and advanced telematics, called Architectures and Concepts for Telematics and Informatics in On-line Networks (ACTION), focuses on building a Beowulf supercomputing cluster called SCORCH-IT (Super-computing Cluster for On-line and Real-time Control of Highways using Information Technology) and an internet-based remote on-line control architecture for real-time traffic operations.
