Developing an intelligent transport system

Professor Stephen Liao of the Department of Information Systems is leading a cluster of public transportation projects in the areas of vehicle safety and information services systems. They include an advanced safety system for vehicles, an intelligent transportation system with mobile vehicle technology applications, and a technological platform for collecting and integrating traffic information.

The traffic information platform provides real-time traffic information to users who need to know the best route to their destination, helping to avoid – and reduce traffic jams. The project exploits feed from video monitoring cameras catching road traffic data, which is analyzed to generate real time traffic conditions. The projects are all collaborations between Hong Kong and Guangdong, highlighting the expanding knowledge transfer between CityU and the mainland.
