Visiting Academic Seminar

Presented by Dana Abudayyeh, Worldwide Learning Opportunities grant funding recipient (2018) and University of Canterbury, New Zealand PhD candidate.

In conjunction with her visit to Melbourne as an ITE-ANZ Student Leadership Summit interstate representative, Dana will give a visiting academic seminar at Monash University. The seminar will describe a novel approach to improve the resilience of urban road networks subject to short-term degradation, with different capacity reductions for different durations. The numerical results showed that for different disruption severities, as traffic starts to divert to other routes, the optimal traffic signal settings changes, to minimise the travel time. This model was presented as a paper at the International Symposium of Transport Simulation (ISTS’18) held in August 2018, Ehime University, Japan . Dana’s travel to Japan was partially funded by an Austraffic Worldwide Learning Opportunities funding grant, through ITE-ANZ.
