Smart Mobility Challenge : 2019 – 2020 Research Project Recaps

Lynn Manion, Executive Director of the ACTA, and Michael Turley, Assistant Manager of North Huntingdon, were this year’s award recipients. Their organizations’ challenges were selected based on the availability of data to answer the stated problem and alignment with the academic strengths of the Carnegie Mellon University Mobility Analytics Center team.

Manion’s mobility challenge involved designing a flex route first and last mile system to maximize mobility and operating efficiency as well as ridership comfort, while Turley sought a solution to alleviate congestion, ensure safety and anticipate travel demand on a heavily trafficked roadway.
