DC/Baltimore Area Event Alert: UMD’s Advanced Transportation Technologies Event – Thursday, August 28

UMD’s upcoming Advanced Transportation Technologies event is taking place in College Park, Md. on the morning of Aug. 28.

This event will feature UMD’s first-ever Labor Day weekend traffic forecast (issued by their Center of Advanced Transportation Technology Lab). Even more, each of their three labs will speak to their specific capabilities and major projects, ranging from traffic visualization and data fusion integration, to emergency preparedness/evacuation routes and innovative intersection design for congestion mitigation. The event will be attended by media and the general public, as well as regional alumni working in transportation/transportation engineering.

In addition to the three A. James Clark School of Engineering transportation labs, there will also be invitations to visitors to tour the Metropolitan Area Transportation Operations Coordination (MATOC), a key player in the D.C. metro area’s coordinated incident management practices for both day-to-day operations as well as large-scale regional incidents (such as hurricanes and floods).

If anyone is particularly interested in visiting a specific lab or talking with a researcher in a particular focus area, is interested in the morning schedule of events, or wishes to RSVP, please click here: UMD-Transportation-Day-082814-press-release.
