Evaluation of Road-Map Data for Intelligent Transportation Systems

Principal Investigator:

Shashi Shekhar, Professor, Computer Science and Engineering

Project Summary:

A number of projects within MN Guidestar (e.g., Genesis and Travlink) are developing software based on road-map data. The software developed in these projects is extremely sensitive to the errors in the road-map data. Thus reliable quality measures and quality assurance efforts are required within Guidestar program. The objective of this project is to define quality measures for road-map data for projects in Intelligent Transportation Systems. The project will focus on defining map quality for navigation and route guidance in Advanced Traveler Information Systems, within the Guidestar program.
