Smart Mobility: Driver State Estimation and Advanced Driver-Vehicle Interfaces

With increasingly complex user interfaces and advancing automation, measuring the state of the driver has never been more important. By using sensor fusion techniques we combine information from multiple sources to accurately and robustly measure the driver’s state—drowsiness and attention, workload and cognitive load, pleasure and anxiety. Only by integrating and synchronizing all the data streams can we properly understand the interaction of the driver and the vehicle.

Modular Hydraulic Trailer Technology

Transportation of overweight and over dimensional (OWC/ODC) consignments with more than several hundred tons is a big challenge for heavy duty freight haulers. Sturdy and reliable modular trailers from TII Group ensure an exceptional logistics performance. Transportation technology with hydraulic axles is the key to protect the Indian infrastructure with its public roads, bridges, places, etc.

Current Situation and Prospect of Transportation Development in China

Since reform and opening-up policies are taken in China from 1978, dramatic changes happened in transportation field. The present situation of transportation is introduced in general firstly. Then, the key new technologies achieved are summarized briefly. Finally, this paper briefly describes the development strategy and policy prospect of China’s transportation.

Civil Engineering Innovation Shaping Mobility of the Future

Transportation infrastructure in the twenty-first century is faced with complex requirements. On the one hand, growing traffic volume worldwide puts increasing stress on existing infrastructure and requires upgrade and expansion of traffic networks. On the other hand, complex and diverging requirements such as economic efficiency, durability, sustainability, ease and speed of construction and last but not least, aesthetics are posed on the design and function of bridge structures today. schlaich bergermann und partner have been active in the field of bridge design for the past 30 years. Several noteworthy reference projects are used to discuss the role of civil engineers in solving the challenges posed on infrastructure design elegantly. These examples feature innovative concepts such as ‘integral’ design for railroad and highway bridges.

Making of Bandra-Worli Sea Link

The Bandra-Worli Sea Link (BWSL) is a civil engineering marvel spanning an arc of the Mumbai coastline. With its cable-stayed towers soaring gracefully skywards, the sea link is a reflection of the modern infrastructure that Mumbai is adding in its progress towards becoming a world-class city.

Digitally Reimagining Mobility

Being mobile is natural to man. Engineering technologies have contributed immensely to human mobility. This paper looks at how current computing technologies are impacting human mobility and sustainability. We present a few examples from the TCS research standpoint, how digital forces improve the travel and transportation ecosystems in an incremental manner. We also look at some disruptive changes digital forces can bring to the travel and transportation industry. We discuss some examples of digital forces that can contribute to sustainability.

Willingness to Pay for Improvement in Service Quality of Public Transit System

This paper focuses on the willingness to pay for different levels of improvement in travel time and comfort. The study clearly illustrates that passengers are willing to pay provided the service qualities are improved. The study also calculates the monetary value of increase in ratio of fare for specific levels of improvement in service qualities. These results could be useful for operators of the public transit system across India to introspect their policies aimed at improving ridership.

Unique Engineering Features of Delhi Metro

When planning of construction of metro system in Delhi was started in 1997, there was no experience of constructing modern metro in the country. Only experience was constructing Kolkata Metro North-South Line which took 24 years to complete 16.5 km Line. Therefore, many innovating engineering solutions were adopted in developing the metro system in Delhi to ensure speedy construction and safety of public and property during construction with least negative impact on environment. Further in order to have financial sustainability of the system, energy efficient, cost effective solutions were deployed.

Creating Sustainable Transportation System in India—Materials Engineer Perspective

Construction and maintenance of road infrastructure requires large amount raw materials, manpower and energy. Increased environmental awareness, shortage of raw materials and legal obligations are prompting engineers to look/adopt for sustainable pavement design and construction technologies. This paper discusses several sustainable practices that can be used by transportation engineering community including waste materials, alternate materials, better material behavior modeling techniques, and construction practices.

Lack of Enforcement Nullifies the Benefits of Mobility Improvement Measures: Some Examples

Based on a study of measures adopted for increasing the safety and mobility of road users, it is found in many cases that the safety measures built at great cost are misused. Lack of enforcement nullifies the benefits which were expected from the improvements. Several examples from different parts of the country on National Highways and Arterial Streets will be presented. The presentation will highlight the need for strict enforcement of traffic rules where engineers safety measures have been proposed and are built at great cost.

Optimizing Traffic Control for a Minimization of Fuel Consumptions and Emission Values

The emissions of harmful substances to the environment can be reduced in two ways. On one hand, by using the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) system of individual vehicles, on the other hand, by controlling the vehicles with the help of appropriate traffic control tools. These two approaches can be analysed in a complex model consisting of the models describing the behavior of the individual vehicles and determining the operation of the traffic network and the relationships between them.
