Cubic Transportation Systems and the Jacobs School of Engineering at the University of California San Diego (UC San Diego) 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. 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.
Through integration of regional transport payments and traveler data, Nextcity will deliver personalized information to passengers so they can make informed travel choices.
The research partnership potentially spans mobile and Web technologies, wireless networking, location-based services, data warehousing, and system architecture and analytics, all areas of expertise at the university.
The Cubic and UC San Diego research collaboration will help discover new technologies and strategies that reduce the costs and increase the utility of these services.
