Connected transportation is a major evolution in how vehicles and infrastructure will interact in the future, affecting every facet of transportation safety and mobility. Vehicles and the infrastructure will be able to talk to each other and communicate their real-time conditions. The lifespan of this research is expected to last more than two decades as communication and message standards are developed, application development takes place, and new data collection and analysis techniques are developed to bring this transformational technology to the roadways we all drive. The Connected Infrastructure Lab is a fully equipped collaborative work space where different disciplines can work together to develop, test and deploy next generation sensors and data applications for the connected and automated vehicle environment, as well as the overall infrastructure arena.
- Development of communication and message standards, applications, and new data collection and analysis techniques.
- Evaluate the interoperability of equipment before deployment in the field and facilitate the simulation of real-world scenarios.
- Actively planning on the deployment of Connected Infrastructure for a Federal Highway Project in Conroe, Texas.
- Supporting the SPaT Challenge in Texas
