The Faculty of Information Technology of Macau University of Science and Technology held an academic seminar on July 22, 2021 in Room A301, Block A. We invited Assistant Prof. Chen Bokui from Tsinghua Shenzhen International Graduate School to be the guest speaker of this seminar. He gave a lecture on "Smart city transportation research results and their applications".
Smart city transportation is the future development trend of urban transportation. This report introduced several research results and their applications in this field. The report focused on four aspects: hybrid transportation simulation system for self-driving vehicles, large-scale city-level transportation simulation system based on GPU parallel computing, dynamic path navigation system, and dynamic adaptive traffic light timing method. At last, some application scenarios in Shenzhen and Singapore are also introduced.
