Dr. Omer Verbas visited the Research Centre for Integrated Transport Innovation (rICIT) at UNSW and gave a seminar on "Modeling Future Mobility Impacts using the POLARIS Agent-Based Transportation Simulator". POLARIS is an open-source agent-based simulation platform developed by the Argonne National Lab in the US. We hope Omer had a great time in Sydney and we wish a safe trip back to the US.
On July 20, 2018, we had the pleasure to host Lauren Weinstein, the Chief Data Officer from Transport for London at UNSW. With Dr. Taha Rashidi, Prof. Mark Hickman (visiting from UQ) and Lauren, we toured around the Research Centre for Integrated Transport Innovation (rCITI) and stopped by the TracsLab for a quick demo of our automated vehicle experiments with driving simulators led by A/Prof Dixit. We also had the chance to present our past and ongoing research at CityX lab with a discussion around urban data analytics and visualization using smart card data and congestion pricing. We wish Lauren all the best in her position and we hope to host her back again in future.
