The University of Queensland is inviting application from domestic and International students for PhD Scholarship at the University. This scholarship is part of an Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage project titled “Real-time Analytics on Urban Trajectory Data for Road Traffic Management”.
The overall aim of this ARC Linkage project is to develop real-time analytics and data management capabilities that leverage large-scale urban trajectory data to provide road operators with real-time insights into population movements and enable data-driven, customer-centric network operations.
We seek to develop innovative technologies to use a wide variety of data sources, especially massive trajectories of vehicles moving across the network, to better understand people’s travel demands and road usage patterns and thus better manage the transport system.
This PhD project will focus on one of the following objectives:
- to develop methods to reconstruct complete, semantically rich trajectories of road users by combining raw trajectories from multiple data sources,
- to develop methods to estimate and predict dynamic movements of road users in real-time using multi-source trajectory data, and
- to develop network-wide traffic management strategies that leverage real-time population movement insights.
