Professor of Civil and Architectural Engineering and Mechanics
Dr. Chiu (PhD, Transportation Engineering, Univ. of Texas Austin 2002) is the Professor at the Department of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at the University of Arizona (UA) and the founder of Metropia, Inc. Dr. Chiu started his academic career as a well-known researcher in the area of simulation-based dynamic traffic assignment (DTA). Dr. Chiu has been a principal developer and consultant to FHWA on the Dynamic Traffic Assignment (DTA) program in the 2010s. One of the hallmark tools originating from Dr. Chiu’s research career is DynusT, a large-scale open source DTA model that is currently the most widely used DTA model internationally.
Dr. Chiu’s vision and leadership led to the development of Metropia in 2012 as an information and incentive-based personal mobility and transportation system management platform, bringing a revolutionary concept to future urban mobility management. Metropia utilizes real-time traffic and incident data and advanced traffic prediction and incentive algorithms to predict future traffic conditions and to use dynamically adjusted incentives as a mechanism to shift demand to less congested times, routes, and modes. The goal is to seamlessly and cost-effectively integrate multiple modes so that driving-alone is not the only option. Metropia plays a leadership role for two recent major Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) deployments in the US (Houston, Texas and Pima County, Arizona) funded by the Federal Highway Administration and Federal Transit Administration.
