Congratulations Ho Lee 
OTC Graduate Student Paper Competition Winner


Ho Lee‘s paper, Identifying and Correcting Pulse Breakup Errors from Freeway Loop Detectors, was chosen as the OTC’s 2011 Graduate Student Paper Competition winner. Mr. Lee is a Ph.D. candidate in the Transportation Engineering program in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Geodetic Science at the Ohio State University. He is now under the supervision of Dr. Benjamin Coifman. His research interests include intelligent transportation systems and application of advanced technologies to transportation.


He received his B.S in Transportation Engineering (2000) and M.S in Transportation Planning (2002) from Hanyang University in South Korea. After receiving a master’s degree, he worked as a research associate in the Korea Railroad Research Institute, South Korea. His major responsibility was the economic feasibility analysis of investing in light-rail transit as well as the analysis of the financing needs. In addition, he was involved in developing new travel demand models to evaluate the impacts of alternative transportation investments. In 2007 he graduated from the Ohio State University with a second M.S in Transportation Engineering. He has been involved with research projects using traffic surveillance systems (e.g., loop detectors and RTMS). The research focused on improving the quality of archived data in existing systems and extracting new information from the freeway traffic stream. Presently he is working on LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) based vehicle classification that is a promising alternative to existing classification station. Click here for a complete copy of Ho Lee’s paper.
