As part of a broader organisational restructure, data networking research at Swinburne University of Technology has moved from the Centre for Advanced Internet Architecture (CAIA) to the Internet For Things (I4T) Research Lab.

Although CAIA no longer exists, this website reflects CAIA's activities and outputs between March 2002 and February 2017, and is being maintained as a service to the broader data networking research community.

Traffic Analysis Project

Traffic congestion in urban areas is a pressing issue both in Australia and around the globe. Intelligent transport systems (ITS) have recently emerged as a potential solution to traffic congestion, where transportation infrastructure is complemented with information and communication capabilities (i.e. smart infrastructure) to make better use of the existing roads and related infrastructure.

In this project, we will analyse the traffic data collected from sensors at signalised intersections around Melbourne to understand the traffic pattern and identify areas with congestion from the available historical data. Insights gained from the analysis will also be used to estimate useful parameters such as the queue length at the intersection.

Supervisors: Hai Vu, Philip Branch, Peter Cadusch and Tony Cricenti
