Reducing Incident-Induced Emissions and Energy Use in Transportation: Use of Social Media Feeds as an Incident Management Support Tool

By 2020, traffic delay is froecasted to cost 8.4 million hours for society and result in a fuel waste of 4.5 billion gallons in the U.S.  Besides the wasted time and fuel, incidents also cause local pollution (due to higher levels of emissions), and injuries/fatalities.  Roadway accidents are responsible for the majority of this high toll a 57.9%.  If an incident is not cleared in a timely fashion, the queue back-up due to incidents can further block nearby ramps or intersections, causing additional delays.  Early incident detection is also reported to save lives by incr

Feasibility of Waterborne Distribution at Hunts Point Terminal Market

Hunts Point Food Distribution Center, also referred to as Hunts Point Terminal Market (HPTM), is the center or hub for food distribution for the New York Metropolitan area. Hunts Point Peninsula, located in the South Bronx, is also home to over 40,000 residents. HPTM is a cooperative owned by stockholders. The cooperative has a long-term lease with the City of New York for its cooperation and tenants.

Draining Identification Analysis and Mapping, Phase 2-NJIT

Drainage Identification Analysis and Mapping System (DIAMS) is a computerized database that captures and stores relevant information associated with all on-ground and under-ground hydraulic structures belonging to NJDOT.  DIAMS retrieves relevant financial information for management so that NJDOT can remain compliant with Phase II of the Government Accounting Standards Board Statment 34, which is NJDOT's sole means of reporting all financial transaction, namely the value of infrastructure drainage assets on an accrual accounting basis.  DIAMS also retrieves all relevant environmen

Regional Financing Options Study

New York City and the surrounding counties of the metro region has arguably the most extensive and complex transportation system in the United States. This region has almost every type of transport system and mode of travel, with massive passenger and freight movement across and into the region. Further, this region continues to grow and change while retaining a core base of infrastructure and economic activity that is based on historical development patterns and land use.

Innovative Travel Data Collection-Planning for the Next Two Decades

In the thirty-two years since the NYMTC forum was established, technology has advanced in staggering bounds. Research seems to be no longer limited to breadth and depth - our ability to provided meaningful evidence based answers to the most basic questions about our constantly moving society is greater than it has ever been. New methods of data collection and analysis are transforming our ability to examine our travel decisions and provide researchers with new vectors for analytic investigation.

Development of Software for Analysis of Traffic Signal Support Structures

Structural Analysis of Traffic Signal Poles is a time-consuming and necessary process for engineers at the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT). This process is currently done manually and is inefficient.

It is a benefit to the State of New York if this structural analysis could be performed by a standardized computer program to determine if a proposed load configuration can be supported by existing or new structure(s).

An Examination of Commercial Vehicle Access to Residential Buildings in New York City

The objective of this project is to evaluate the adequacy of existing zoning requirements and curb regulations to accommodate commercial deliveries to residential buildings in New York City. Through literature review, this study will explore factors influencing changing demands for goods delivery to urban residences. Through a review of regulations, existing zoning and parking/loading controls will be identified and summarized to characterize parking and loading supply available to commercial vehicles accessing new and historic developments in NYC.

Transportation Infrastructure Robustness: Analysis And Measurement

We propose to analyze and measure the robustness of transportation infrastructure facilities and systems. This proposal falls into the UTRC category of “faculty-initiated research projects”. It addresses a topic related to the goals of “maintaining an infrastructure transportation system in a state of good repair” to “enhance the Nation’s economic competitiveness”, which have been designated by USDOT and UTRC as key research areas.
