UF Engineer Leads Collaboration for Safer Roadways

Sanjay Ranka, Ph.D., a professor in the Department of Computer & Information Science & Engineering (CISE), was recently awarded a $2 million grant from the National Science Foundation to develop technology that will monitor high-risk intersections in Gainesville, FL, to make roadways safer. The project, “Video-Based Machine Learning for Smart Traffic Analysis and Management,” is a collaboration with the City of Gainesville and the UF Transportation Institute and will last four years.

The goal of the project is to use video processing and machine learning to make traffic intersections safer and improve congestion for the city. Ranka will be working with Anand Rangarajan, Ph.D., professor, CISE; Lily Elefteriadou, Ph.D., director of the UF Transportation Institute (UFTI); Siva Srinivasan, Ph.D., associate professor, Engineering School of Sustainable Infrastructure & Environment; and Dan Hoffman, Gainesville assistant city manager.
