While autonomous vehicles (AVs) offer significant safety benefits for drivers, to gain widespread approval from the public and road agencies, redundant vehicle to infrastructure capabilities are necessary. This is especially true in areas with adverse weather conditions such as snow and ice.
Join the CCAT (Center for Connected and Automated Transportation) for the next installment of Research Review featuring Jeffery Roesler, Ph.D. of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He will be discussing his portion of “Operations of Connected and Autonomous Freight Trucks under Congestion and Infrastructure Cost Considerations“.
Existing AV technology is able to send safety messages to roadside units (RSUs) and other vehicles (V2V), but communication with concrete and asphalt requires embedded sensors. This research proposes a passive sensing approach that detects local changes in the pavement’s electromagnetic signature so that vehicles can determine their lateral lane position.
This free webinar will include a Q&A session.
