The traffic engineering group manages the Intelligent Transportation Systems Laboratory (ITS-L), which is equipped with advanced networked computing facilities and transportation modeling software such as EMME/2, TRANSYT, INTEGRATION, NETSIM, etc. In addition, ITS-L is active in developing state-of-the-art modeling tools, such as Dynamic Intersection Signal Control Optimization (DISCO), Public Transportation Route Guidance System - eFinder, multi-class static and dynamic traffic assignment, traffic simulation via neural network modeling, transportation network reliability, network design and optimization, road pricing and transpor-tation economics. The group has also been involved in a number of consultancy projects, ranging from surveys and planning studies to advanced methodo-logical and computational studies for various district boards and the Transport Department of the Hong Kong SAR.
