This project measures sidewalk, curb ramp, and curb cut quality data to evaluate pedestrian infrastructure quality. The project considers accessible, active travel for people with physical disabilities.
Using Atlanta’s MARTA rail system as a case study, this thesis will assess the feasibility of integrating autonomous transit vehicles (transit AVs) into the public transportation system as a first-mile and last-mile solution for riders.
In this research, widely used car-following models are re-assessed for use in emission/fuel consumption estimation, with their impact on vehicle specific power and instantaneous engine work as comparative indices.
The research team will develop Python code to integrate TransitSim shortest transit path predictions for every origin-destination pair and departure time into regional activity-based travel demand model (ABM) outputs.
This research proposal will compare alkali activated materials, asphalt and “green” asphalt pavement technology through life cycle assessment and life cycle cost analysis, using the state of Georgia as a case study.
This project studies travel patterns associated with the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. The researcher considers fan arrival and departure time, mode choice, and ingress/egress routes to determine more efficient transportation on game days.
This study will develop MOVES-Matrix 3.0, a high-performance emission modeling system that uses emission rates pre-generated by iterating across all combinations of model input variables for 146,853 MOVES 3 model runs per region.
