ITS Podcast Episode 21: NOTICE. Traffic Incidents Reporting with Samy El-Tawab

Happy new year to everyone!

How could we possibly have a better start for the new year than with a new edition of the ITSPodcast? As you may see, we don’t stop for Holidays! Here you have a still warm new episode with Professor Samy El-Tawab, from James Madison University, in Virginia, US. We have had a very interesting chat about a refreshing new Traffic Incidents reporting architecture they have recently published at the IEEE ITS Magazine.

We also have a new volunteer for our show, Dr. Maryam Kaveshgar, who has contributed with a extremely interesting News Minisection. Please go and check it out!

Mehran Shirazi will be talking about the history of traffic accidents in his Transportation in History minisection.

Finally, we have a very important call in the middle of this episode’s interview. We are launching a “Follower-get-a-follower” campaign to better disseminate this publication and extending our subscribers email list.

If you are interested, you may even win an i-Pad by convincing your friends and colleagues to join in! Please listen to the details in the middle cut, or visit http://itsp.cicei.com/?p=610. Thank you!

For those willing to jump straight to the Prof. El-Tawab’s interview, it starts at 6′:51″.
