Abstract

This research seeks to develop an infrastructure safety support system by embedding V2I enabled sensor networks into the transportation infrastructure to provide autonomous vehicles and human drivers with inputs to improve their decision making when obvious decisions may not possible. A new car-following algorithm is also developed to enable the autonomous vehicles to integrate the real-time traffic and road condition data from such an infrastructure safety support system to improve traffic safety and mobility with autonomous vehicles in mixed driver environments. The performed sensitivity study also optimizes such an infrastructure safety support system for combined considerations on effectiveness and affordability of the system.
