these are Some of our Best AchievEments
“The best way to predict the future is to invent it.”
– Theodore Hook
- Principal Researcher: prof. Dr. Ing. Miroslav Svítek, dr.h.c.
- Time Duration: 01/2019 – 12/2022
- Description: The NCK KUI project aims to create a national platform for cybernetics and artificial intelligence that will connect research and application-oriented centers of robotics and cybernetics for Industry 4.0, Smart Cities, intelligent transport systems, and cybersecurity. The connection of innovation leaders will raise effectivity of applied research in key areas, such as advanced technology for globally competitive industry, ICT, and transportation for the 21st century. NCK KUI is closely related to the application sector and enables cross-domain collaboration, innovation development, and technology transfer.
Means of safety of road transport vehicles, infrastructure and processes, automation methods of traffic information validation
- Principal Researcher: Ing. Lubomír Šembera
- Time Duration: 01/2019 – 12/2022
- Description: The aim of the project is to improve safety and reliability of urban traffic infrastructure and its readiness for non-standard crisis situations. The research focuses on improving the Integrated Rescue System and ensuring the operability of urban infrastructure. The project includes the use of analytical software for evaluating traffic intensity and daily changes at intersections to enhance traffic safety and crisis management. The project uses camera systems to create an analytical layer for evaluating and managing crisis situations. The project also includes the use of drones to complement data collection from camera systems. The project has four main goals, including communication infrastructure, software for image analysis, digital twins, and drones. The research findings will contribute to improving the safety and efficiency of urban traffic and enhance the quality of life in cities. The project also includes testing and implementation of new systems, such as the Time Actuated Signalplan Selection (TASS) system on a selected sub-area of Evropská street.
- Principal Researcher: Dr. Ing. Jan Přikryl
- Time Duration: 6/2021 – 5/2024
The aim of the project is more effective use of multimodal transport information for the purpose of verifying proposals and new technologies. A digital model of the real transport environment will be created using current traffic data. At the same time, a new set of methods and algorithms for automated preprocessing and fusion of measured traffic and IoT data will be created and new procedures will be established for continuous calibration of simulation models. The result will be demonstrated on the example of Evropská street in Prague. The resulting simulation-modeling framework will also be the basis for the future development of new services and algorithms. The adopters will be able to determine the impact, for example, on traffic flow or the environment before the actual implementation.
Automated control center for operation of minibuses, autonomous MoD
- Principal Researcher: VDT Technology a.s. (Ing. Václav Jirovsky, Ph.D.)
- Time Duration: 01/2023 – 12/2025
- Description: The project aims at the future effective reduction of IAD, the need for which often arises when it is inefficient for transport companies to create VHD lines – on less busy routes. Study of principles for optimal implementation of the deployment of automated minibuses (AM) in the form of MoD (Mobility-on-Demand). Creation of a semi-automated control center ensuring efficient and safe operation of AM. Development of algorithms for dynamic creation of routes of AM lines using predictions of the number of passengers on the selected route. The subject of the research is also technology for identifying incidents in the vehicle and methods for implementing remote control, which are specifically required for safe and reliable operation of AM, both from the perspective of passengers and from the perspective of operation of AM in the system with other road users.
