New Approaches and Paradigms in Traffic Flow Modeling and Control
Wednesday, August 24, 2022

Hybrid Event
Location: 6 Metrotech Center, Room 460 Brooklyn, 11201
In this talk, Dr. Wen-Long Jin will present some of his recent results on new approaches and paradigms in traffic flow modeling and control. He will first discuss traffic flow models in three types of spaces: (1) provably safe driving models for both human-driven and autonomous vehicles in the absolute space on a road, (2) bathtub models for network trip flows in a relative space with respect to individual travelers' remaining trip distances, and (3) day-to-day traffic flow models for departure time choice in an economic space with respect to the scheduling cost. Then he will present two studies on traffic system operations and control: (1) dynamic pricing schemes for high-occupancy-toll lanes with a single or multiple bottlenecks; and (2) fleet-size management for shared mobility systems with for-hire vehicles.
Dr. Wen-Long Jin (BS in Automatic Control, University of Science and Technology of China, 1998; PhD in Applied Mathematics, UC Davis, 2003) is a Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UC Irvine. He’s interested in fundamental principles, concepts, models, and methods for analyzing, operating, and planning of transportation and mobility systems. Dr. Wen-Long Jin has systematically studied network traffic flow theory, capacity drop and lane-changing models, connected vehicle systems theory, and green driving strategies. He is an editorial board editor of Transportation Research Part Band Transportation Science and an Associate Editor of Transportmetrica B.
He has published one textbook entitled “Introduction to Network Traffic Flow Theory” and numerous journal and conference articles.
