UBDA platform can support various kind of research areas of different departments. It is currently supporting research projects related to Modern Distribution Network, Air Pollution, Vehicular Traffic, Climate System, etc.
Modern Distribution Networks
Distribution Networks consist of several distribution centers and various demand points dispersed in different regional areas and generate massive amounts of data. The biggest challenge is to use the generated big data for identifying the right number of distribution centers to open the distribution centers.
As a city infrastructure grows, the level of carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, ground-level ozone, particulates, sulfur dioxide, hydrocarbons, and lead also increases. This increases the risk of strokes, heart disease, lung cancer and pulmonary/acute respiratory diseases, such as asthma.
The big data of a city can be used to calculate the impact of pollution on the human well beings.
Modern vehicles are capable of reporting location and status information in real time to the vehicle’s control and diagnostic systems. This kind of data can be used to handle several traffic issues, such as congestion, construction of new roads, diversion, etc.
Global climate change and its impact on human life have become one of our era's greatest challenges. The data of changing climate can be used to understand the climate changing patterns.
