2007-08 Seminar Series

Abstract: The impact of traffic management on modern society is enormous. Good traffic management policy and practice leads to environmental, economic and societal benefits that far out way the time taken to develop, test and deploy new and novel traffic network management systems. NICTA is contributing its fundamental understanding of technologies such as video analysis, speech processing, machine learning, constraint programming, wireless communication systems and visualisation to develop new methods for monitoring, measuring and controlling traffic flow. In this talk an overview of our current research will be presented and possible future research directions discussed. A soon-to-be deployed novel control and traffic sensing solution for a congested roundabout will also be shown.

Bio: Glenn Geers completed a B.E., B.Sc and Ph.D in 1988, 1989 and 1994respectively at the University of Sydney. Upon completing his doctorate he worked at CSIRO for seven years, the first two of which were spent working on lossy electromagnetics and the latter five on image processing and biometrics. He then worked on developing novel optical fibres at JDS Uniphase for a year before taking a position at Zone Products working on advanced sensors and video applications in the security field. From late 2005 he has held the position of Systems Engineering Manager for the Smart Transport and Roads Project at NICTA. He has published in the fields of optical fibres, wavelets, image processing and biometrics. He is a member of the Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics.
