Monitoring Babies’ Movement The Integrated Media Systems Center has been working with Beth Smith at the Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy to help examine poor motor development in infants. Smith has collected data from 12 typically developing infants and 24 infants at risk for developmental delay between birth and walking onset. Infants wore a sensor on each leg at home for 8 to 10 hours a day. Unlike current practice, where motor development is assessed by an expert during a limited…
The Most Hazardous Hour to Drive in LA? Years of transportation research done by IMSC makes an impact in different disciplines and society. The most comprehensive database ever assembled on Los Angeles traffic is now accessible to drivers, journalists and policymakers, via a user-friendly platform built by IMSC. Thanks to collaboration between IMSC and the USC Annenberg School of Journalism, the project, “Crosstown Traffic,” provides new insights on congestion, road accidents and public transportation from 2012-2016.
Crosstown Traffic Integrated Media Systems Center and USC Annenberg School of Journalism have teamed up to analyze IMSC’s massive and ever-growing traffic database. Traffic data, particularly in a city such as this one, is unique in its ability to send us signals about the economy, quality of life, safety, and social and economic status in Los Angeles. Each team br unique skills to this endeavor. The expertise of IMSC researchers in computer science, data management and statistics was essential in…

IMSC Start-up Tallygo brings solutions to transportation in Los Angeles Even beyond Hyperloops and aerospace, the strength of LA’s university system continues to lead the way in bringing new edge-case transportation solutions to market. Case in point,TallyGo, an LA-based real-time navigation startup, was spun out of technology originally developed in-house at USC’s IMSC institute. The company has since raised millions in funding from local investors and is now taking on mapping giants like Waze, Google and Apple Maps.
The modern commute may be heading for a big upgrade, thanks to carpool ride-sharing services and advances in automotive electronics and smart transportation systems.
On November 24, USC news featured an article titled “Big data offers a new look at Expo Line” that highlights the success of Expo Line in attracting public transportation riders towards reducing the traffic congestion. This study is conducted based on ADMS project – a big data framework for transportation systems – developed by IMSC.
