Transportation Systems Research


The Transportation Systems Research (TSR) group conducts research in a variety of areas, focusing on the system-level issues of multi-modal transportation. One of the primary goals of the group is to predict the air quality and energy impacts of a variety of transportation activity. Much of this is accomplished through the integration of state-of-the-art vehicle emission models with different transportation models, operating both at the micro- and macro-scale.

The group also carries out a variety of field studies, measuring traffic parameters and individual vehicle activity (including emissions) while operating in traffic.

The TSR group also has an extensive telematics research program, focused on sending/receiving information from vehicles in real-time. This telematics research program began with the implementation of one of the most advanced carsharing programs in the world, UCR IntelliShare. The group is also involved in a variety of sensor and controls research.
