tramullas

    • Dr. Jesús Tramullas. Responsible for the design of the Information Architecture in Vehicular environments. He is working on information exchanging issues, specially at high level, among the different agents involved (vehicles, Road Side Units, Emergency vehicles, Police Department, etc.), as well as the Internet connectivity of vehicles.

    • Dr. Ana I. Sánchez. Responsible for Metadata and Information Retrieval research guidelines. Due to that the information exchanged among vehicles should be well structured, the use of metadata that allow the interoperability of the systems is required. This would facilitate the communication probabilities, and make it possible to implement new services and high-level applications (traffic safety applications, increasing the passengers’ comfort, intelligent traffic management, etc.).

    • Dr. Julio A. Sangüesa. He did his doctoral thesis within our group. His work was related to simulation and modeling of smart and adaptive dissemination systems in vehicular environments. In particular, these approaches allow to adapt the warning dissemination policy to the specific situation at any time (i.e., according to roadmap topology where the vehicles are traveling, and the vehicle density). Currently, he is the PhD. Advisor of Vicente Torres.

    • Fernando Naranjo. PhD Student. His work is focused on Sustainable mobility in Intelligent Transportation Systems. The main objective of his thesis is the investigation of algorithms related to intelligent road traffic management for future vehicles. In particular, we aim ato improving driving and environment issues on the basis of the information received and vehicular communications.

    • Vicente Torres. PhD Student. His thesis is focused on Improving Electric Vehicles’ performance by using Vehicular Communications and Artificial Intelligence. In particular, he is investigating on future tools and architectures that allow a correct implementation of the electric vehicle in future cities. To this end, some systems to better manage recharging of vehicles will be proposed. Additionally, he is working on accurate prediction of electricity demand, planned recharge approaches, and the creation of systems that allow efficient driving, especially for electric vehicles.

    • Mirialys Machín. PhD Student. Her work is related to both Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Knowledge Data Discovery (KDD) techniques that allow to correctly manage and extract information from the data gathered by vehicles. This huge volume of data will require to efficiently manage vast amounts of information.

jbarrachina

    • Dr. Javier Barrachina. He did his doctoral thesis within our group. His work used Artificial Intelligence techniques to better deploy Road Side Units (RSUs) and improve the traffic management in urban environments. His proposals allow to reduce: (i) vehicles’ travel time, (ii) fuel burn and CO2 emissions, as well as (iii) the time required to assist injured people in traffic collisions. Currently, he is working in the Diputación Provincial de Teruel.

    • Manuel Antón. He developed his Final Year Project (FYP) in our group. His works focused on designing and implementing an application able to manage parking spaces in urban environments. Having in mind existing studies that highlight the high amount of time usually required by drivers in our cities, the FYP proposed a solution to ease the parking task, while reducing fuel burn and CO2 emissions. After finishing his studies, he joined Capgemini, New Energy Aborda, and  Accenture.

    • Jesús Ibáñez. He developed his Final Year Project in our group. His work focused on developing an application that allows vehicle hire companies to automatic manage their electrical vehicles fleets. Specifically, we used the customers’ smartphones as On-board Units (OBUs), thereby allowing the automatic and efficient management, while reducing the current rental costs. Currently, he is doing a Ph.D. in the Universitat Politècnica de València.

    • Jesús Fuentes. He developed his Final Year Project in our group. His work focused on developing Citymob for Roadmaps (C4R) v.2.0, the mobility tracer generator previously proposed by the member of our group. In particular, he improved the application by adding new and useful functionalities, and additionally fixing some bugs that have been detected in the first version. We are going to distribute the application freely, since we want researchers to quickly and easily generate their mobility traces  in order to validate their proposals. Currently, he is working in Jamones Casa Conejos, S.A.
