NYU Tandon is dedicated to harnessing the power of urban informatics to make sure cities are smart and sustainable, and we’re constantly finding ways to produce cleaner energy, greener methods of manufacturing, better public transportation systems, and more resilient infrastructure. Because when more than half of the people on the planet live in urban areas, it’s important that those areas be livable.
Research Centers & Groups
C2SMART aims to accelerate transportation opportunities arising from unprecedented recent advances in communication and smart technologies.
INTERCEP is the international research and development center dedicated to strategic risk management and organizational resilience.
BUILT @ NYU
The Behavioral Urban Informatics, Logistics, and Transport Laboratory conducts research in the area of transportation systems design and modeling. Typical products of this lab may include dynamic operating policies for flexible transport services, a parking pricing and information system for travelers, a decision support tool for evaluating multimodal infrastructure investment strategies, or a fleet routing algorithm for autonomous vehicles or other cyber-physical transportation systems. The lab is a part of the Center for Urban ITS within Tandon, and is headed by Professor Joseph Chow.
Dynamical Systems Laboratory
The Dynamical Systems Laboratory conducts fundamental research in the broad field of modeling and control of complex systems with specialized expertise in multiphysics modeling and marine applications of advanced/multifunctional materials. Activities span applied mathematics, design and fabrication of novel hardware, and advanced computation and experimentation.
Future Building Informatics and Visualization Lab
The Future Building Informatics and Visualization Lab (biLAB) is part of the Department of Civil and Urban Engineering at the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering. It focuses on understanding the operational challenges associated with construction and operation of facilities and infrastructure systems in urban settings.
Urban Intelligence Lab
We are focused on creating new data-driven methodologies to observe, model, and analyze the urban environment. Our work is grounded in solving real-world problems and providing decision-makers with a comprehensive understanding of the relationships between physical infrastructure systems, natural systems, and human systems.
Urban Mobility and ITS Systems Laboratory
It combines a series of new concepts, technologies and services to integrate information, vehicles and transportation infrastructure to increase mobility, safety and comfort, and reduce energy waste and pollution.
