Explorations to Inform V2I Managed Lanes Design and Development

Vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technology connects vehicles, infrastructure, and any other communicating devices. By sending and receiving short communications, known as Basic Safety Messages (BSMs), vehicles will receive key information about their surroundings that can be relayed to their drivers to aid safe operations. The potential for safety applications under a mature V2X system is tremendous: through use of a mature system, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) studies indicate that 81 percent of all unimpaired crashes could be avoided. Research is critical to better understand how communication technologies may support or limit the potential impacts of connected vehicles. The project will investigate vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication technology to be installed along connected roadways, including dedicated short range communication (DSRC), long term evolution (LTE) and potential 5G technologies, and investigate V2I privacy and security threats.
