Transportation planning, traffic monitoring, and traffic safety analysis require detailed information about pedestrian volumes, but such data are usually lacking. Fortunately, recent research has demonstrated the accuracy of pedestrian volumes estimated from push-button data contained within high-resolution...

Construction projects require long hours where workers are subjected to intensive tasks such as hard manual labor, heavy lifting, and constrained working postures. Among the physiological metrics, heart rate (HR) is reported to be a good indicator of physical stress and workload. HR forecasting models...

Roadside safety is a critical aspect of transportation management, with elements like rigid obstacles, guardrails, clear zones, and side slopes significantly impacting accident outcomes. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) provides a valuable rating system for departments of transportation (DOTs)...

The emerging field of advanced air mobility (AAM) presents myriad opportunities for disrupting traditional modes of transport, including passenger travel to cargo logistics. However, its path to full-scale adoption is fraught with regulatory, market, and logistical challenges. This report presents a...

The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) needs to respond quickly and adapt to the coronavirus (COVID-19) to ensure continuation of critical infrastructure support and relief for the American people.
