As an independent consultant, I partner with the SFMTA CTO to implement Smart City and Transportation technology, and establishing the ITS Strategy, Architecture, and Implementations. Ongoing, I’m guiding the technical program managers in the execution of the three strategic programs Advanced Train Control, Radio Communication, and Customer Information System Implementation.

Currently hands-on: As IoT Strategist and Product Manager, leading the pilot to make visible the traffic flow, obstructions, and curb management by using LIDAR and DSRC sensors at the intersections. Signal Engineers will be able to make changes to signal timing as well as the flow will be available real-time. We’re building some advanced machine learning models to optimize this analysis.

Next will be feeding this information back to dynamically influence the signals to decrease travel time, reduce collisions, increase pedestrian and cyclist satisfaction, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
