Raphael Stern's research interests are in the area of transportation cyber-physical systems, specifically how they relate to vehicle automation and smart infrastructure. He is particularly interested in the modeling and control of traffic flow using autonomous vehicles as Lagrangian actuators in the flow and the possibility of next-generation traffic state estimation using sensors on vehicles embedded in the flow.
