(Center Identification Number: 79050-02-B) Principal Investigators: Fabian Cevallos, Ph.D., Transit Program Director Lehman Center for Transportation Research (LCTR) Florida International University (FIU) 10555 West Flagler Street, EC 3609 Miami, FL 33174 fabian.cevallos@fiu.edu (305) 348-3144 Sean Barbeau, Director, Research Associate Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) University of South Florida (USF) 4202 E. Fowler Avenue, CUT 100 Tampa, Florida  33620-5375 barbeau@cutr.usf.edu (813) 974-7208 Background Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) systems are computer-based vehicle tracking systems that function by measuring the real-time position of each vehicle and relaying this information back to a central location. AVL systems are most frequently used for fleet management to identify the location of vehicles for a variety of purposes including: improved dispatch, operation efficiency, and faster response times to disruptions in service, such as vehicle failure or unexpected congestion; quicker responses to threats of criminal activity; and improved data for future planning purposes.
