Mobile Unit for Sensing Traffic (MUST) is a comprehensive sensing and communication device that can be used for smart transportation applications, such as traffic sensing, data collection, V2X applications, roadway monitoring, and infrastructure security applications. The device consists of a variety of integrated sensors to collect data from many sources, which is then processed “on the edge” (the device itself) using artificial intelligence and deep learning algorithms. The researchers developed MUST to address four main challenges with conventional transportation sensing and analytics and smart city structures:
Heterogeneity of sensors and devices
The goal is to be able to collect, integrate and analyze multi-source and multi-purpose data. However, platform incompatibilities resulting from the heterogeneity of information hinder interoperability. Therefore, smart city initiatives often focus on designing and purchasing hardware and software that enables aggregation of heterogeneous sub-systems and data sources.
Urban networks gather a wide range of data, including highly sensitive citizen data (via facial recognition software, device tracking etc.). Therefore, privacy and data confidentiality are vital to the success of any smart city and/or ITS venture.
With constant data generation from innumerable devices, smart city initiatives focus on discovering strategies to manage and analyze the high volume of data.
The data collection devices do not provide communication capabilities. Most devices in the market collect and analyze data, they do not provide a way to communicate with traffic control units. Communication with traffic control units can augment real-time decision-making capabilities of existing transportation systems and make them robust to rapidly changing conditions.
M.U.S.T integrates sensing, analysis and communication functions all in one device to address the diverse needs of smart transportation.
