Specialists in intelligent transport and transport infrastructure solutions
The De Montfort University Interdisciplinary Group in Intelligent Transport Systems (DIGITS) is a research group of academics who focus on a wide range of intelligent transport and transport infrastructure solutions. The group is dedicated to carrying out research and developing programmes that will progress the introduction of sustainable urban and regional transport policies across the European Union and internationally.
By working in partnership with industry, transport service providers, government and other research institutes and communities the group provides answers to technological, economic and societal questions around sustainability and modal change. In particular, the health and well-being of communities. Key areas of expertise include:
Intelligent integrated traffic and air quality control
Mechanical behaviour of pavement and rail track materials
Airport and harbour environment modelling and evaluation
Geographical information systems and data mining
Embedded systems and ECU design
Integrated Traffic Management and Air Quality Control Using Space Services (iTRAQ)
Dr Ben Passow talks about iTRAQ, a key project which looks at automatically proposing situation specific and optimised traffic management strategies through integrating traffic control and air quality.
