On July 9-14, 2019, under the support of the "Overseas Teacher Masters in English" program at Chang'an University, invited by our base, Li Xiaopeng, a tenured professor of the University of South Florida, brought "Traffic" to our base teachers and students. Full English teaching of the Flow Theory course. Professor Xu Zhigang, Mr. Yang Yu, Mr. Hao Ruru and more than 20 graduate students from Chang'an University participated in the study and discussion of this course.
In this course, Professor Li Xiaopeng taught in English throughout the course, systematically introducing the definition and model of highway traffic flow through theoretical and experimental aspects, modeling techniques and related theories about vehicles, drivers and traffic flow, and exploring new ITS. Technologies such as existing sensors and emerging networked vehicles, as well as autonomous vehicles, discuss data and control issues related to networked smart vehicles. The course content includes vertical traffic flow control model, vehicle following model, fluid mechanics-based traffic flow model, traffic data analysis method, and intelligent networked vehicle introduction. During the course of the class, my base teachers and students and Professor Li Xiaopeng interacted well and achieved good teaching results.
Li Xiaopeng is a tenured professor at the University of South Florida. His research interests include traffic flow analysis, modeling and control of autonomous vehicles, electric vehicle sharing systems and associated infrastructure design and operation. He has published more than 40 papers, many of which have been included in SCI. In recent years, he has hosted a number of research fund projects, including the National Natural Science Foundation (NSF), and received the American Natural Science Foundation Award in 2015.
