Transport Data Science Research Center of Tongji University
Transport Data Science Research Center is a research laboratory established by Tongji University in partnership with some world-class universities, government departments and information technology companies. It aims to develop new knowledge, technologies and approaches for transport big data and computational intelligence, cultivate transport data analysts and promote the development of transport data industry.
In our laboratory, the research projects include: pervasive traffic data acquisition and information fusion, life-cycle transport infrastructure management and maintenance, network traffic status evolution and intelligent management, transport operation management and safety, and decision-oriented transport model and integrated simulation, etc.
Our laboratory is equipped with advanced facilities. Transport big data experiment platform is building for research, development and teaching. This experiment platform consists of high-performance computing clusters, mass storage units and visualization system. Over 100 terabytes transport data have been imported in the experiment platform. The data include mobile phone data, GPS data of Taxi and bus, GPS data derived from smartphones, vehicle license plate recognition data, smart card data of bus and metro, induction loop data, etc., covering Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen, Xiamen and other large cities of China. The experiment platform can also access the computing and data resources of our partner companies like Cennavi, Navinfo. Our laboratory has established cooperative relationships with University of Washington, Purdue University, Shanghai Traffic Information Center, Shanghai Transport & Port Research Center, Tencent, etc.
