The STAR Lab investigates, evalutates, simulates, prototypes and develops for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) theories and applications, with a particular emphasis on (1) traffic sensing and edge computing, (2) transportation data science and analytics, (3) smart infrastructure and future urban mobility, and (4) traffic operations and safety. Founded in 2003, STAR Lab now proudly hosts students from different backgrounds: from transportation engineering, automation/ electrical engineering, computer science, statistics, to urban planning. The Lab combines these expertise to conduct advanced ITS research, devise effective solutions to transportation problems, educate next-generation transportation engineers, and bridge UW communities with the transportation industry. Our work has been well regonized by both academia and industry, with various awards and successful students job landings.
