Dr. Ban’s research goal is to help resolve transportation related congestion, energy and emission problems, by promoting new technologies and transportation options in a way that is beneficial to the society at large. For this, he uses mathematical modeling and computer simulation techniques to explore how various transportation systems operate in tandem, from freight trucks to passenger cars to transit vehicles, and how they may be managed and/or operate cooperatively for the common good. To develop more efficient, safer transportation systems, he utilizes insight from vehicle sensors, as well as other data gathering methods, to learn/predict vehicle and transportation system performances. Recently, he develops modeling tools to study dynamic transportation networks with emerging technologies and systems such as connected/automated vehicles and shared mobility. He also works on urban traffic system state estimation and prediction using mobile sensing data.
