Traffic violations like illegal parking, illegal turning, and speeding have become one of the greatest challenges in urban transportation systems, bringing potential risks of traffic congestions, vehicle accidents, and parking difficulties. To maximize the utility and effectiveness of the traffic enforcement strategies aiming at reducing traffic violations, it is essential for urban authorities to infer the traffic violation-prone locations in cities. Therefore, we propose a low-cost… 
CrowdPatrol: A Mobile Crowdsensing Framework for Traffic Violation Hotspot Patrolling
A mobile crowdsensing-based framework to dynamically infer traffic violation hotspots and adaptively schedule crowd patrol routes and a tensor-based integer linear problem modeling method (TILP) to adaptively find optimal patrol routes under human labor constraints are proposed.
Panoramic Street-Level Imagery in Data-Driven Urban Research: A Comprehensive Global Review of Applications, Techniques, and Practical Considerations
This paper provides the first comprehensive, state-of-the-art review on the use of street-level imagery for urban analysis in five research areas: built environment and land use; health and wellbeing; natural environment; urban modelling and demographic surveillance; and area quality and reputation.


Detecting Vehicle Illegal Parking Events using Sharing Bikes' Trajectories
The massive and high quality sharing bike trajectories from Mobike offer a unique opportunity to design a ubiquitous illegal parking detection system, as most of the illegal parking events happen at curbsides and have significant impact on the bike users.
iBAT: detecting anomalous taxi trajectories from GPS traces
An Isolation-Based Anomalous Trajectory (iBAT) detection method is proposed and the potential of iBAT in enabling innovative applications is demonstrated by using it for taxi driving fraud detection and road network change detection.

It is demonstrated that crowdsensing data from vehicle parking sensors can be used to classify on-street areas into legal/illegal parking spaces, and it is shown that on- street parking maps can be estimated with an accuracy of ~90% using proposed weighted occupancy rate thresholding algorithm.
Real-Time Illegal Parking Detection in Outdoor Environments Using 1-D Transformation
A methodology for detecting illegally parked vehicles in real time by applying a novel image projection that reduces the dimensionality of the data and, thus, reduces the computational complexity of the segmentation and tracking processes.
On Map-Matching Vehicle Tracking Data
This work presents three algorithms that consider especially the trajectory nature of the data rather than simply the current position as in the typical map-matching case, and proposes an incremental algorithm that matches consecutive portions of the trajectory to the road network.
TrajCompressor: An Online Map-matching-based Trajectory Compression Framework Leveraging Vehicle Heading Direction and Change
A light-weighted yet efficient map matcher, namely, Spatial-Directional Matching (SD-Matching), to align the noisy and sparse GPS points upon the underlying road network, which fully explores the usage of vehicle heading direction collected from the GPS trajectory data.
crowddeliver: Planning City-Wide Package Delivery Paths Leveraging the Crowd of Taxis
This paper proposes an economical approach to express package delivery, i.e., exploiting relays of taxis with passengers to help transport package collectively, without degrading the quality of passenger services, and proposes a two-phase framework called crowddeliver for the package delivery path planning.
Road traffic sign detection and classification
The algorithm described in this paper takes advantage of color thresholding to segment the image and shape analysis to detect the signs and uses a neural network for the classification.
Sensing the pulse of urban refueling behavior
This paper uses reported trajectories from a fleet of GPS-equipped taxicabs to detect gas station visits, measure the time spent, and estimate overall demand, and provides real-time estimates of gas stations' waiting times and an indicator of overall gas usage.
