Heydari, S., Fu, L., Thakali, L., & Joseph, L. (2017, August). Identifying areas of high risk for collisions: A Canda-wide study of grade crossing safety. In Transportation Information and Safety (ICTIS), 2017 4th International Conference on (pp. 640-644). Abstract: Ranking sites and identifying high-crash risk locations based on various safety performance measures (e.g. expected crash frequency) are among the key tasks of a safety management program, enabling an effective allocation …Read More

Thakali, L., Fu, L., & Chen, T. (2016). Comparing Crash Prediction Techniques for Ranking of Sites in a Network Screening Process. Proceedings of the 26th Canadian Association of Road Safety Professionals (CARSP) Conference, Halifax, NS, June 5-8, 2016.

Thakali, L., Fu, L., & Chen, T. (2016). Comparing Crash Prediction Techniques for Ranking of Sites in a Network Screening Process. Proceedings of the 26th Canadian Association of Road Safety Professionals (CARSP) Conference, Halifax, NS, June 5-8, 2016. Abstract: Network screening, a process for an effective and efficient management of road safety programs, relies on crash prediction techniques to quantify the relative risks of given sites. The two most commonly used statistical approaches …Read More

Pan, G., Fu, L., Thakali, L., Muresan, M. (2018).An Improved Deep Belief Network Model for Road Safety Analyses. Proceedings of the Transportation Research Board conference, Jan 2018, US (accepted)

Pan, G., Fu, L., Thakali, L., Muresan, M. (2018).An Improved Deep Belief Network Model for Road Safety Analyses. Proceedings of the Transportation Research Board conference, Jan 2018, US (accepted) Abstract: Crash prediction is a critical component of road safety analyses. A widely adopted approach to crash prediction is the application of regression-based techniques. The underlying calibration process is often time-consuming, requiring significant domain knowledge and expertise and cannot be easily …Read More

Proceedings of the 2015 CSCE Annual Conference, May 27-30, 2015. Regina, SK. Abstract: This paper describes the result of a study aiming at illustrating how models of winter road maintenance (WRM) performance measures can be applied to investigate the implications of different winter road maintenance level of …Read More

Muresan, M, Hossain, S. M. K., Fu, L. (2015). A Model-Based Evaluation of an ECO-Driving System Using Connected Vehicle Technologies. 2015 CSCE Annual Conference.

Muresan, M, Hossain, S. M. K., Fu, L. (2015). A Model-Based Evaluation of an ECO-Driving System Using Connected Vehicle Technologies. 2015 CSCE Annual Conference. Abstract: Connected vehicle technologies are often touted for their potential applications to vehicle safety. However, these technologies also have the potential to contribute to a transportation system’s sustainability. Autonomous and connected vehicles provide traffic engineers with many opportunities for emissions reductions, from vehicle routing to a …Read More
