Recently, Dr. Angshuman Guin's work was highlighted in a Fox 5 Atlanta news story. Guin, of Georgia Tech's School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, is researching ways to make interstate ramp meters more efficient and to speed up interstate travel, among his many other projects.
For this research project, Guin has plotted travel time in relation to ramp meters, showing when traffic begins to build and how modifying ramp wait times can be used as a tool to control highway congestion levels. Through his work, travel times can be reduced by up to 24%.
The Georgia Department of Transportation has been very supportive of Guin's research. For more information on his current projects, please follow the links below. These ten projects cover diverse sectors within the fields of civil and transportation engineering, and are impacting the state of transportation as it is currently known.
