This seminar is presented by the School of Computing and will be given by Professor Hesham A. Rakha.

Dr. Rakha received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in civil engineering from Queen's University, Kingston, in 1990 and 1993, respectively. He is currently the Samuel Reynolds Pritchard Professor of Engineering with the Charles E. Via, Jr. Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Virginia Tech.

Dr. Rakha will be presenting on Connected Vehicles (CVs) an emerging technology that stand to generate transformative improvements in the roadway transportation system. CV technology encompasses a set of applications that connect vehicles to each other and to the road infrastructure using vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications, collectively known as V2X. More generally, travelers also communicate with the cloud through smartphone applications, creating connected travelers (T2X). These technologies generate real-time data that can be leveraged to control traffic and route travelers/vehicles optimally. With the emergence of vehicle automation in conjunction with vehicle connectivity, collectively known as connected automated vehicles (CAVs), new opportunities are available to enhance transportation system efficiency. The presentation will provide an overview of the current research within the Center for Sustainable Mobility at the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute on CAV research.
