Intelligent Transportation Systems

Dr. Qianwen (Cami) Li is an Assistant Professor in the School of Environmental, Civil, Agricultural and Mechanical Engineering (ECAM) at the University of Georgia. Dr. Li leads the Cooperative Automated Mobility Innovations (CAMIs) Lab. Her research aims to identify issues with existing transportation systems, propose innovative solution methods to approach these issues with emerging technologies (such as vehicle communication, automation, electrification, and smart infrastructure), and then test and evaluate the proposed methods in the real world. The goal is to help build a greener, safer, more efficient, more sustainable, and more equitable future transportation system. Her works have been published by top transportation journals, such as Transportation Research Part E, Transportation Research Part D, Accident Analysis & Prevention, and IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems.
