Maria Laura Delle Monache, a young researcher recognized for her collaboration with the Berkeley University (USA)

Maria Laura Delle Monache, researcher in the NECS Team, works on traffic flow modelling. She has just received the “France-Berkeley-Fund Award for high-achieving younger researchers” with Samitha Samaranayake (Cornell University, PhD UC Berkeley). The prestigious American university rewards her commitment in creating strong and long-term relationship between France and the USA.

Grenoble Traffic Lab interface open to public

Since the 28th November 2016 the Grenoble Traffic Lab (GTL), an experimental platform for real-time traffic data collection is available to the public. Data is retrieved from a dense network of wireless sensors installed in the south ring of Grenoble (Rocade Sud in French), in the direction east-west from A41 to A480. The GTL is part of the ERC Scale-FreeBack project and it provides a service platform for testing new traffic estimation, forecasting and control algorithms with real-time data by using field tests and other realistic simulations.

Announcement of the ERC Advanced Grant 2015 Scale-FreeBack

The ERC Advanced Grant 2015 “Scale-FreeBack” has been launched in September 2016. The ERC will last 5 years and it’s primary funding will be used for recruiting PhD students and post-docs, and to conduct proof-of-concept studies. The overall aim of Scale-FreeBack is to develop holistic scale-free control methods of controlling complex network systems in the widest sense, and to set the foundations for a new control theory dealing with complex physical networks with an arbitrary size.
