Vice President - Smart Infrastructure
Freeways. Toll roads. Managed lanes. Light rail. Buses. Cars. Trucks. As the area transportation mix becomes more complicated, local agencies are devising ways to improve traffic flow and alert commuters to the best modes and routes to use. In the Dallas-Fort Worth area, that is the purpose of SmartNET and 511DFW, recently initiated programs by local and state agencies and Dallas Area Rapid Transit. SmartNET gathers data from an assortment of sources and analyzes and distributes it to local agencies and the media; 511DFW provides general as well as personalized traveler information.
In this presentation, Dr. Sadegh provides a thorough description of the two systems in the Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) Project and how its two main components came into being. UT Arlington Civil Engineering Department faculty played a role in the development of the project.
Ahmad Sadegh received his bachelor's degree in civil engineering and master's degree in transportation engineering from Mississippi State University and a doctorate in transportation engineering from Arizona State University. Before becoming manager of this DFW project, he was project manager of numerous others, including one involving a joint U.S./Canada traffic management system and another covering a 29-county New York/New Jersey/Connecticut metropolitan region.
