Using New Inferential Models to Increase Traffic Safety in Urban Areas
Annual traffic fatalities reached 1.35 million in 2016 worldwide, and more than half of these are in crashes involving vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians and bicyclists. Most studies related to traffic fatalities use geographic information models and tools to assess events.
Researchers Develop Predictive Tool to Track When, Where and Why Blue-Green Algae Occur in Florida
Researchers at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering will soon be working with the state to find solutions. In a new study beginning in August 2022, scientists at the college will develop a quantitative method to predict where, when and why HABs like blue-green algae occur.
Remote sensing research improves hurricane response
Researchers with the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering’s Resilient Infrastructure and Disaster Response (RIDER) Center are investigating better ways to predict where road-clogging debris will be most severe after tropical cyclones.
Solving Critical Transport Issues for Disaster Supplies
Is factory-in-a-box manufacturing better than conventional manufacturing when it comes to disaster response? It comes down to algorithms, engineering researchers say… The nature of a pandemic is to disrupt. A factory in Shanghai recently closed because of COVID-19 lockdown restrictions.
