From July 10, 2017 to July 13, 2017, Prof. Heng Wei from University of Cincinnati in USA was invited to visit our base for 3 days.
During the stay, Prof. Heng Wei visited The Traffic Information Detection and Control Engineering Laboratory of Shaanxi Road Traffic Intelligent Detection and Equipment Engineering Technology Research Center, and made a series of academic lectures, which are grouped around several topics, including “Integration of Fundamental Traffic Flow Theories”, “Fundamentals to Pre-timed Signal Design”, “Practical Experience and Problems of Traffic Signal Control and ITS Technology”, “Actuated Traffic Signal System Design”, “Signal Coordination for Arterials and Networks”, “Critical Understanding of ITS Architecture” and so on. Combining with his own research projects and academic papers, Prof. Heng Wei answered the scientific research problems from the audience. Outstanding teachers and graduate students from our base participated in the seminar. The lectures were well appreciated.
