Highways - The road to efficiency

 

City Traffic Engineer John Van Winkle, who has positioned Chattanooga as a national leader in intelligent transportation and communication technologies, is headlining a seminar scheduled at Oak Ridge National Laboratory Jan. 10. The event will highlight recent successes in Chattanooga and examine how Internet and communications technologies combined with sensors are coming together in increasingly meaningful ways as traffic engineers strive to reduce congestion and increase safety on highways. Jan-Mou Li, organizer of the seminar and a member of ORNL’s Vehicle Systems Research Group, will also discuss potential partnerships with Chattanooga and his recent work related to fuel economy with connected vehicle technology, traffic simulation and the electrification of the nation’s highways.
