Speaking at the ceremony, Dr Osman Hassan indicated that this collaboration marks a significant milestone in shared pursuit of both parties in the field of knowledge and innovation in transportation engineering. “Collaborative efforts are essential to create sustainable solutions that directly impact society. Our partnership with SDJTU in the field of intelligent transportation aims to improve traffic demand management, enhance road safety, and address congestion issues.”

Another guest, Dr. Muhammad Irfan, Principal of SCEE, NUST analyzed in detail the future plan of the joint lab, emphasizing “intelligent transportation systems can identify patterns in traffic flow parameters, analyze drive behaviors and detect anomalies in road conditions which lead to efficient traffic management and increased safety.”

Thus, the research is envisaged to develop strategies and systems for traffic incident detection, traffic flow measurement, actuated signal control, accident management, traffic simulations, and transportation demand management which are vital components of sustainable transportation systems in urban mobility, he noted.
