Traffic and Networks

Students from CISR and Professor Hamdar at the Traffic and Networks Research Laboratory


In the Traffic and Networks Research Laboratory (TNRL), the Transportation Engineering team tackle the following research areas:

  • Driver behavior modeling
  • Traffic flow theory and control
  • Networks flow problems and dynamic traffic assignment
  • Pedestrian flow modeling and detection

Special focus is given to transportation safety and sustainability with research in emission modeling and air pollution propagation, driver decision making under uncertainty, disaster management, and evacuation modeling. This laboratory contains software packages, sensors and controllers found in state-of-the art Traffic Management Centers. TNRL is equipped with a host of PCs, workstations, and computing facilities with the latest traffic modeling and simulation software.  Sensors and controllers are also obtained for experimentation.

TNRL has two facilities. The first main facility is located on the 6th floor of the Science and Engineering Hall at the George Washington University Foggy-Bottom Main CampusThe second facility is located on the third floor of Exploration Hall at the George Washington University's Virginia Science and Technology Campus
