Microscopic Estimation of Freeway Vehicle Positions Using Mobile Sensors

Noah Goodall, Brian Smith & B. Brian Park
The introduction of mobile sensors, i.e. probe vehicles with GPS-enabled smart phones or connected vehicle technology, will potentially provide more comprehensive information on roadway conditions than conventional point detection alone. Several mobility applications have been proposed that utilize this new vehicle-specific data rather than aggregated speed, density, and flow. Because of bandwidth limitations of cellular and an expected slow deployment of connected vehicles, only a portion of vehicles on the roadway will be able to...

Your vote matters! Community input for Advancing Hyku feature prioritization

Ilkay Holt, Ellen Ramsey & Brian Hole
This presentation provided an update on the project at the end of its first year. Presenters introduced the developments made so far, architectural review for structural improvements for the Hyku framework, collaborations to strengthen the project deliverables and the forthcoming plans for the coming year.

Beyond Science: Humanities Research Data

Sherry H. Lake
Presentation for ASERL "Libraries in Process" community call. Looking at data from a non-STEM perspective. This presentation is on "Data in/ and the Humanities". Talks about how Humanities "research" is really just "data" and how that "data" differs from "data" in the more commonly thought about science domain.

Arterial Performance Measures in a Connected Vehicle Environment

Noah Goodall, Brian Smith & Ramkumar Venkatanarayana
Wireless communication between vehicles and the transportation infrastructure will provide significantly more timely and comprehensive information about arterials and their performance. However, most measures-of-effectiveness were developed based on data available from traditional “point” sensors. The information made available in a connected vehicle environment requires new metrics that can fully utilize the data. This paper identifies several new arterial performance metrics made available in a connected vehicle environment, as well as several existing metrics that can...

A Hykurax Panel: Advancing Hyku; Hyku for Consortia; Hyrax Analytics

Ellen Ramsey, Gretchen Gueguen, Amanda Hurford, Margaret Mellinger & Franny Gaede
Panel presentation Samvera Virtual Connect 2020 What are the alignments and differences of three currently funded Hyku/Hyrax development efforts? A discussion with Advancing Hyku, Hyku for Consortia, and Hyrax Analytics leads will address deliverables of each project, unique contributions, and areas of alignment and collaboration of these three concurrent efforts to enhance the Hyku/Hyrax community core and Hyku/Hyrax applicability to use specific use cases. Background information on each project is available at: Advancing Hyku: https://advancinghyku.io/...

Vehicle Automation and the Duty to Act

Noah Goodall
The act of driving always carries some level of risk. With the introduction of vehicle automation, it is probable that computer-driven vehicles will assess this changing level of risk while driving, and make decisions as to the allowable risk for itself and other road users. In certain situations, an automated vehicle may be forced to select whether to expose itself and its passengers to a small risk in order to protect other road users from...

Advancing Hyku Project: Open Source Institutional Repository Platform Development

Ellen Ramsey & Brian Hole
This presentation was given at the Digital Commons + Great Lakes User Group meeting, online July 27, 2020. It is part of a two-year award in the amount of $1,000,000 from Arcadia—a charitable fund of philanthropists Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin—in support of the “Advancing Hyku: Open Source Institutional Repository Platform Development” project. Through this project, the University of Virginia and its partner institutions—Ubiquity Press and the British Library—are supporting the growth of open access...
