Article
The airtightness of buildings has a significant impact on buildings’ energy efficiency, maintenance and occupant comfort. The main goal of this study is to provide an evaluation of the air leakage characteristics of dwellings in different regions in Canada. This study evaluated the key influencing factors on airtightness performance based on a larg...
Article
The application of deep learning techniques on point cloud data holds significant promise for efficient data segmentation and classification of traffic signs. This study proposes modifications to the PointNet++ neural network to improve performance on outdoor scenes. In addition, the method leverages the use of local geometric features in the train...
Article
The widespread use of light detection and ranging (LiDAR) data provides a promising source for the automatic detection and inventory of roadside assets. One of the essential elements in roadside furniture is light poles. There is limited research on the mapping of light poles using point-cloud data on rural highways. In this environment, the placem...
Article
Providing sufficient Available Sight Distance (ASD) that meets the minimum design requirements is crucial for highway safety. Previous work on sight distance assessment focused on Stopping Sight Distance (SSD) with little attention given to Passing Sight Distance (PSD). Insufficient PSD could lead to severe collisions such as head-on and sideswipe...
Article
The concept of redesigning public spaces to encourage physical distancing amid the COVID-19 pandemic is being tested around the world. In Canada, municipalities are reallocating underutilized road lanes for active modes of transportation, such as walking and cycling. We evaluated the usage and benefit of these shared spaces to ensure redesign effor...
Article
Several highway design elements are presently determined based on constraints due to human drivers. Autonomous vehicles (AV) are expected to replace human drivers with an expectation of having differing driving characteristics. It is, therefore, imperative that current infrastructure is reassessed for AV scenarios. This paper proposes a raycasting...

This paper proposes a fully automated approach to map and assess roadside clearance parameters using mobile Light Detection and Ranging (lidar) data on rural highways. Compared with traditional manual surveying methods, lidar data could provide a more efficient and cost-effective source to extract roadside information. This study proposes a novel v...

This paper proposes an automated framework that utilizes Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) point cloud data to map and detect road obstacles that impact drivers’ field of view at urban intersections. The framework facilitates the simulation of a driver’s field of vision to estimate the blockage percentage as they approach an intersection. Further...
Article
Autonomous vehicles (AVs) are anticipated to supersede human drivers with an expectation of improved safety and operation. Since current infrastructure is designed based on the constraints caused by human drivers, it must be reassessed for autonomous driving compatibility. Recently, representatives from the infrastructure owners/operators (IOOs), a...
Article
The generic nature of road design is indiscriminate to age, race, or gender, as it is implicitly assumed that there are few behavioral differences between drivers while traversing various alignment elements (e.g., horizontal curves, tangential segments, etc.). For instance, the perception reaction time required, which is based on an 85th percentile...
Article
Canadian municipalities are increasingly choosing to achieve bare pavement (BP) for snow and ice control during fall/winter seasons. When a snowstorm event is forecasted, one strategy is to apply anti-icing chemicals to the pavement surface to prevent the snow and ice from forming a bond with the road surface. Such an approach facilitates a more ef...
Article
Producing as-built drawings is an important task in any road construction project. In fact, in an ideal situation, these drawings must be updated whenever major maintenance work takes place. Unfortunately, constantly updating those drawings is not always feasible due to the amount of manual work associated with the data collection in traditional su...

This paper investigates the distance halo effects of mobile photo enforcement (MPE) on urban roads in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Speed data were recorded at various distances upstream and downstream of nine locations during four MPE site visits and at the corresponding times in 4 days without enforcement. Data collection was performed during the su...
Article
This paper investigates the time halo effects of mobile photo enforcement (MPE) on urban arterial and collector roads. Speed data were continuously recorded at nine locations for five consecutive weeks during the summer months of 2015 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Each location was enforced according to a predefined deployment plan related to the r...

Public transit has an important role not only in mitigating traffic congestion and improving the mobility but also contributing in land use management. Among public transit modes, semi rapid transit modes, which are BRT and LRT, offer higher mobility, reliable and comfort services. In the previous researches, long debates between BRT proponents and...
