Workshop Description

In recent years, traffic detectors have been intensively deployed in major highway systems across the country. These sensors generate tremendous traffic data that are extremely valuable for traffic management, forecast, and control. How to manage the data efficiently and produce the most useful information out of them have been crucial challenges faced by traffic professionals. This need is particularly highlighted by the recent “big data” initiatives. Considering that many different kinds of transportation data management systems have been developed, this workshop brings together top experts with such experience to share their knowledge and vision on the following issues:

(1) Needs and Challenges for Transportation Data Management and Sharing
(2) Existing Platforms and Their Pros and Cons
(3) Emerging Technologies that Can Be Applied in the Future
(4) Future Directions and Resources
