Dr. Ali Hajbabaie

CCEE associate professor Dr. Ali Hajbabaie was recently featured in the Triangle Business Journal. 

The article, which focuses on the potential for a $70 billion self-driving car market, notes Hajbabaie’s research on creating autonomous vehicle software that will make calculations more quickly to improve traffic and safety.

​​Hajbabaie hopes that by making the research available, “the team can show what’s possible, and help alleviate the fears associated with the idea of a self-driving car facing down real-world traffic,” according to the article.

Hajbabaie is interested in real-time optimization of large-scale complex engineering systems represented by models with a high degree of realism. His research is focused on traffic operations and control in the presence of connected human-driven and self-driving cars. Hajbabaie and his research group use multi-scale analysis, modeling, and optimization to improve traffic operations. His research is advancing our understanding of cooperative traffic control systems and contributes to the development of future mobility systems, including connected and automated vehicles.
