Traffic and Networks Research Laboratory

The Traffic and Networks Research Laboratory (TNRL) team is involved in advanced theoretical and applied research tasks in the area of traffic flow theory and control, evacuation management, and pedestrian/driver behavioral modeling and detection. The lab's models enable decision makers to create less congested, more sustainable and safer transportation systems. In addition to modeling, the TNRL research team focuses on understanding Vehicle to Vehicle (V to V), Vehicle to Infrastructure (V to I) , Vehicle to Pedestrian (V to P) and Pedestrian to Infrastructure (P to I) interactions and communication systems. Data obtained from traffic sensors, a vehicular driving simulator and an instrumented vehicle are utilized for such purpose. Learn more about Professor Hamdar.
