Cubic Transportation Systems and the University of California San Diego (UC San Diego) have entered into a collaborative partnership to research the next generation of intelligent travel technologies for cities.
Cubic will contribute $500,000 over five years to the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering to fund research done by faculty, students and Cubic Transportation Systems staff. Research will span mobile and Web technologies, wireless networking, location-based services, data warehousing and system architecture and analytics, all areas of expertise at the university.
“Consumer mobile devices, wireless communications and account-based payment processing create the opportunity to make significant new information available to travelers,” said Matt Cole, senior vice president of strategy and business development, Cubic Transportation Systems.
The project aims to achieve a better understanding of the application and utilization of emerging technologies, with the ultimate goal of making transportation easier, more convenient, more economical and environmentally greener for transit operators and their customers.
