Transportation 5.0: From Parallel Driving to Parallel Traffic Control

Time: Thu 2018-06-14 09.00 - 10.00

Lecturer: Fei-Yue Wang

Location: ITRL, Drottning Kristinas Väg 40 Stockholm, Sweden 10044

With the fast development and application of the internet of things, big data, social computing, and artificial intelligence, transportation space has been extended from physical to Cyber-Physical-Social. Transportation 5.0 is an emerging field of transportation research and applications based on Cyber-Physical-Social systems (CPSS). CPSS-driven transportation provides new challenges and opportunities for vehicle and traffic management and control, which needs a new thinking and solution paradigm. In this talk, I will present our current research on parallel driving and parallel traffic control based on the ACP(Artificial Societies, Computational Experiments, and Parallel Execution) approach which offers an innovative and smart solution for achieving safe, effective and efficient operations of current and future road transportation systems.

Fei-Yue Wang received the Ph.D. in computer and systems engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, New York, NY, USA, in 1990. He joined the University of Arizona in 1990 and became a Professor and Director of the Robotics and Automation Lab and Program in Advanced Research for Complex Systems. His current research focuses on methods and applications for parallel systems, social computing, and knowledge automation. In 1999, he founded the Intelligent Control and Systems Engineering Center at the Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Beijing, China, and in 2002, was appointed as the Director of the Key Lab of Complex Systems and Intelligence Science, CAS. In 2011, he became the State Specially Appointed Expert and the Director of the State Key Laboratory of Management and Control for Complex Systems.

Prof. Wang was the Founding Editor-in-Chief (EiC) of the International Journal of Intelligent Control and Systems from 1995 to 2000, the Founding EiC of IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Magazine from 2006 to 2007, the EiC of IEEE Intelligent Systems from 2009 to 2012, and the EiC of the IEEE Transactions On Intelligent Transportation Systems from 2009 to 2016. He is currently the EiC of Ieee Transactions On Computational Social Systems and The IEEE/CAA Journal Of Automatica Sinica, and China’s Journal of Command and Control. Since 1997, he has served as the General or Program Chair of more than 20 IEEE, INFORMS, ACM, and ASME conferences. He was the President of IEEE ITS Society from 2005 to 2007, Chinese Association for Science and Technology in 2005, the American Zhu Kezhen Education Foundation from 2007 to 2008, and the Vice President of the ACM China Council from 2010 to 2011. Since 2008, he has been the Vice President and Secretary General of Chinese Association of Automation. He is an elected Fellow of INCOSE, IFAC, ASME, and AAAS. In 2007, he received the 2nd Class National Prize in Natural Sciences of China and the Outstanding Scientist by ACM for his work in intelligent control and social computing. He received the IEEE ITS Outstanding Application and Research Awards in 2009 and 2011, respectively, and the IEEE SMC Society Norbert Wiener Award in 2014.
