Traffic congestion, volumes, origins, destinations, routes, and other road-network performance metrics are typically collected through survey data or via static sensors such as traffic cameras and loop detectors. This information is often out-of-date, difficult to collect and aggregate, difficult to analyze and quantify, or all of the above. In this paper(More)
This paper presents a stochastic motion planning algorithm and its application to traffic navigation. The algorithm copes with the uncertainty of road traffic conditions by stochastic modeling of travel delay on road networks. The algorithm determines paths between two points that optimize a cost function of the delay probability distribution. It can be(More)
We describe an algorithm for stochastic path planning and applications to route planning in the presence of traffic delays. We improve on the prior state of the art by designing, analyzing, implementing, and evaluating data structures that answer approximate stochastic shortest-path queries. For example, our data structures can be used to efficiently(More)
In this paper, we present a congestion-aware route planning system. First we learn the congestion model based on real data from a fleet of taxis and loop detectors. Using the learned street-level congestion model, we develop a congestion-aware traffic planning system that operates in one of two modes: (1) to achieve the social optimum with respect to travel(More)
This paper proposes a method for multi-agent path planning on a road network in the presence of congestion. We suggest a distributed method to find paths for multiple agents by introducing a probabilistic path choice achieving global goals such as the social optimum. This approach, which shows that the global goals can be achieved by local processing using(More)
This paper presents shadow detection methods for vision-based autonomous driving in an urban environment. Shadows misclassified as objects create problems in autonomous driving applications. Real-time efficient algorithms in dynamic background settings are proposed. Without the static background assumption, which was often used in previous work to develop(More)

We present algorithms for a motion planning for multiple agents whose goals are to visit multiple locations with probabilistic guarantees for achieving the goal. Though much research has been done in stochastic shortest path algorithms, the existing algorithms focus on the single-origin single-destination problem for one agent. This paper formulates a(More)
