The Future Mobility lab (FMlab) in University of Technology Sydney is part of a new Data Science Institute launched in January 2019 by the University of Technology in Sydney under the Faculty of Engineering and IT. The research lab is focusing on developing advanced data driven models for solving some burning real-world problems such as traffic congestion, smart city liveability, mobility fluidity, and transitioning towards new emerging transport modes such as connected and autonomous vehicles, on-demand transport, vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications.
The research areas that the lab is working on are spanning from:
The research scientists in this group are using advanced machine learning and smart algorithms to model and improve transport networks, and maximise operational performance. For various planning purposes, the group builds simulation models to analyse the impact of traffic disruptions, signal control changes, etc.
With a strong background in transport modelling and artificial intelligence, the UTS Mobility lab aims to:
The work of the Future Transport Mobility group is aimed at addressing some of the world most challenging problems such as:
