ADOT Emergency-Intellidrive

The Arizona E- IntelliDriveSM research program is an investigation of the application of IntelliDriveSM technologies to improve the safety and efficiency of incident response and incident management activities. This project has concentrated on the development of IntelliDriveSM applications to provide intelligent emergency vehicle priority at traffic signals and ramp meters and to provide incident location information dissemination using vehicle-to-vehicle and 511 communications. Partners in the project include the Arizona Department of Transportation, Maricopa County Department of Transportation, Kimley-Horn & Associates, Arizona State University, Oz Engineering, The AzTech Partnership, Econolite, and Savari Networks.

Extended Manufacturing & Services Enterprises

Our research focus is on the design, engineering, and control of the integrated, extended, manufacturing and service enterprise. We have developed 1) a new modeling framework based on a distributed federation of multi-paradigm simulation models, 2) a new integration platform based with emerging information and distributed-computing technologies, and 3) several original reference and information models. Together, these elements enable the coordination of data-driven, multi-scale, networked-federated simulation, decision, and execution modules that facilitate real-time decision-making and control. By introducing new modeling support technology, our research has enabled ambitious, yet cost-effective, analysis and control of large, complex enterprises with major implications for profits, productivity, and information security.
