CCEE’s Dr. Ali Hajbabaie featured on WRAL

CCEE associate professor Dr. Ali Hajbabaie was recently interviewed on news station WRAL about his research using computer simulations to find ways to make autonomous vehicles safer. Hajbabaie and other CCEE researchers are using software to study traffic scenarios on busy roads with the hope of reducing travel time, delay and emissions while increasing safety.

“Eventually, I hope in the future, we can get close or we can get to zero collisions,” said Hajbabaie in the interview.

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.
