Computing Community Consortium Blog

The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.

The Open Source Application Development Portal (OSADP) Adds More Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) Applications for Download

November 8th, 2016 / in Announcements, Research News, resources / by Helen Wright

The Open Source Application Development Portal (OSADP) is a web-based portal that provides access to and supports the collaboration, development, and use of open-source ITS-related applications. The OSADP has added a number of new ITS-related applications that are available free to the public. The following new applications are now available for download: Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) Hub takes in data from vehicles via Basic Safety Messages (BSM) and translates the data to a National Transportation Communications for ITS Protocol (NTCIP) that infrastructure components can understand.  And vice versa. V2I Hub is a message handler that acts as a translator and data aggregator/disseminator for infrastructure components of a connected vehicle deployment. Dynamic […]

Department of Transportation SHRP2 Naturalistic Driving Study Training Webinars

October 24th, 2016 / in Announcements, Research News / by Helen Wright

The Department of Transportation is holding a series of webinars developed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)’s Safety Training and Analysis Center (STAC) for researchers as an introduction to the SHRP2 Naturalistic Driving Study (NDS) data and the Roadway Information Database (RID).  The four webinars will discuss the following topics: November 30th, 2016 (1:00 PM to 2:30 PM EST): This webinar will focus on the SHRP2 NDS data covering the driver and vehicle information. The topics covered include: Introduction to the  NDS Access to NDS data The InSight website NDS data analysis examples December 14th, 2016 (1:00 PM to 2:30 PM EST): This webinar will focus on the SHRP2 Roadway Information Database (RID). Topics […]

New Connected Vehicle Data Environments from the Following Projects of the Dynamic Mobility Application (DMA) Program are Now Available in the Research Data Exchange

July 13th, 2016 / in Announcements / by Helen Wright

The Research Data Exchange (RDE) is a web-based data resource provided by the USDOT Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Program. It collects, manages, and provides access to archived and real-time multi-source and multi-modal data to support the development and testing of ITS applications. The RDE now houses the following three additional data environments: Intelligent Network Flow Optimization (INFLO) The two prototyped INFLO applications (speed harmonization (SPD-HARM) and queue warning (Q-WARN)) were demonstrated from January 12 through January 16, 2015 on a segment of I-5 in Seattle, WA. The purpose of this project was to demonstration the functionality and performance of these two prototype applications in an operational traffic environment. The following […]

New Data Sets from the Next Generation Simulation (NGSIM) Program are Now Available in the Research Data Exchange

May 25th, 2016 / in Announcements, research horizons, Research News / by Helen Wright

The Research Data Exchange (RDE) is a web-based data resource provided by the USDOT Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Program. It collects, manages, and provides access to archived and real-time multi-source and multi-modal data to support the development and testing of ITS applications. The RDE now houses four data sets from the Next Generation Simulation (NGSIM) Program. The NGSIM program was initiated by the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to develop traveler behavioral algorithms that could be used in microscopic traffic simulation models. The validated data sets and documentation describing these algorithms which replicated the interactions of multimodal travelers, vehicles and highway systems (e.g., traffic control […]

Federal Highway Administration Driving Study Webinar

March 17th, 2016 / in Announcements, Research News / by Helen Wright

Join the Federal Highway Administration for the first in a series of webinars on Tuesday April 5th from 1:00PM-2:30PM (ET) on their program SHRP 2 Naturalistic Driving Study (NDS) Pooled Fund, which will conduct ground breaking research in the areas of Highway Safety, Operations, Planning, and Safety. This first webinar will provide an overview of the data and discussion of the Pooled Fund. Future webinars will be more closely aligned to potential research questions based on the data, including video analytics. The solicitation for this pooled fund can be found here. The SHRP 2 NDS data and complementary Roadway Information Database (RID) will provide unprecedented data to the highway community collected over a […]

New Connected Vehicle Data Sets from the Safety Pilot Model Deployment (SPMD) Program Are Now Available on the Research Data Exchange

January 20th, 2016 / in Announcements, Research News / by Helen Wright

The Research Data Exchange (RDE) is a web-based data resource provided by the USDOT Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Program. It collects, manages, and provides access to archived and real-time multi-source and multi-modal data to support the development and testing of ITS applications. The RDE now houses two months of data from the Safety Pilot Model Deployment (SPMD) program. These sets of naturalistic driving data are a valuable resource for researchers and application developers to support the development of the next generation of transportation solutions. The data sets contain sanitized mobility data elements collected from about 3000 vehicles equipped with connected vehicle technologies while traversing Ann Arbor, Michigan. These sets of […]
