Visible to the public Communication for Automated Vehicle Efficiency and Safety Systems

Abstract:

Overview: The human cost of transportation in the US reaches an unnecessary 33000 fatalities and 2.2 million injuries every year. The inefficiency of road transportation also burdens our economy, with only the cost of fuel wasted in traffic reaching $88 billion a year.

Visible to the public CPS: Synergy: Collaborative Research: Collaborative Vehicular Systems

Abstract:

The ongoing research aims to develop rules to study and methods to coordinate a network of fully and partially self-driving vehicles, interacting with conventional vehicles driven by people on a complex road grid, so that overall safety and efficiency of the traffic system can be improved.

Visible to the public CPS: Synergy: Collaborative Research: Collaborative Vehicular Systems

Abstract:

As self-driving cars are introduced into road networks, the overall safety and efficiency of the resulting traffic system must be established and guaranteed. Numerous critical software-related recalls of existing automotive systems indicate that current design practices are not yet up to this challenge. This project seeks to address this problem, by developing methods to analyze and coordinate networks of fully and partially self-driving vehicles that interact with conventional human-driven vehicles on roads.
