THE BIG PICTURE
We do research on
monitoring and control
for cities to become smarter and better to live in
The Transport and Traffic Engineering Laboratory (LICIT) is a Joint Research Unit which is placed under the supervision of University Gustave Eiffel and ENTPE (Post-graduate School of Transport and Civil Engineering).
The laboratory is located on both the ENTPE Campus and the University Gustave Eiffel centre in Lyon.
The LICIT’s main research theme is the Dynamic Modelling, Monitoring and Control of Transportation Networks.
OUR RESEARCH THEMES
A few things we’re great at
The research activities performed in our laboratory cover a large spectrum of subjects related to traffic modelling, simulation, mobility data analytics, resilience engineering,
and novel solutions for efficient transport.
TRAFFIC MODELLING, SIMULATION AND CONTROL
We develop simulation models and tools based on physics and traffic theory. Simulation tools are used to test new mobility services and control strategies.
We design models describing the evolution of transport systems including the regulatory systems and the various mobility services. We develop regulation strategies to optimize the operation of these systems while reducing environmental impacts.
TRAFFIC ANALYTICS AND PREDICTION
We leverage multi-source data to build intelligent transport systems and understand human mobility at different spatio-temporal scales.
We develop original solutions based on machine learning techniques, data fusion and data assimilation techniques to understand how people move inside a city and to implement smart solutions to improve the transport system. We focus on the usage of large-scale data, such as call detail records, mobile network probe data, drone images, GPS data.
RESILIENCE ENGINEERING AND IMPROVEMENT
We explore complex networks to quantify, monitor and predict the resilience of multi-modal transportation.
We leverage the potential of graph theory and simulation to investigate how transport networks can be capable of absorbing different kinds of stresses they could be subject to. We devise new strategies (regulations, dynamic control, flexible mobility services) to support cities in improving their robustness and ability to recover from disruptions.
OUR RESEARCH APPROACHES
Data-DRIVEN AND multi-Physics APPROACHES
To MODEL, ANALYSE, simulate, predict and control traffic
THE potential of big data and Artificial Intelligence
We use multi-source data to understand human mobility demand, travel patterns and motifs. We develop platforms based on data analysis and machine learning to support traffic monitoring, vulnerability assessment and resilience improvement.
The power of MULTI-physics for traffic Modelling AND CONTROL
We develop multi-scale traffic models, simulation tools and control strategies for the understanding and managing of multi-modal transport, by integrating a variety of mathematical approaches .
