The team has been renewed for 3 years in 2015 and further extends the collaboration to Rutgers University (PI Prof. Benedetto Piccoli), with the aim to develop a unified macroscopic approach for traffic management by providing analytical and numerical tools for traffic monitoring, prediction and control, based on real-time sensing.
