Developing Short Range Vehicle-to-Infrastructure Communication Systems

The objective of this project is to develop dedicated short-range communication systems (DSCS) to connect vehicles with roadside infrastructures (traffic signs, work zone barrels, traffic signals…) so as to not only enhance the safety but also reduce emissions and fuel consumptions of vehicles. The field test beds will be selected in typical work zone and stop sign areas, and simulations in the driving simulator will be also conducted to understand the drivers' reactions due to this type of short range communication system.
