Simulation and Learning for Urban Mobility: City-scale Traffic Reconstruction and Autonomous Driving

by   Weizi Li, et al.

Traffic congestion has become one of the most critical issues worldwide. The costs due to traffic gridlock and jams are approximately 160 billion in the United States, more than 13 billion in the United Kingdom, and over one trillion dollars across the globe annually. As more metropolitan areas will experience increasingly severe traffic conditions, the ability to analyze, understand, and improve traffic dynamics becomes critical. This dissertation is an effort towards achieving such an ability. I propose various techniques combining simulation and machine learning to tackle the problem of traffic from two perspectives: city-scale traffic reconstruction and autonomous driving.
