Smart, Green, Equitable, Safe, Complete Streets for All - Phase I: Development of a CAV Testbed-enhanced Smart Campus at Morgan State University

The purpose of the study is to enhance safety for all participants on the road by creating an advanced Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV) testbed. A CAV testbed serves as a controlled smart environment where various aspects of CAV technology can be thoroughly tested, refined, and validated before deployment on public roads. This advanced testbed aims to contribute to the development, evaluation, and improvement of CAVs' capabilities, ultimately leading to safer interactions between CAVs, traditional vehicles, and vulnerable road users especially pedestrians and bicyclists. The study aims to identify potential safety hazards, vulnerabilities, and challenges related to CAV technology and develop solutions to mitigate them. To provide a smart campus, the testbed would collect extensive data on vehicle behavior, sensor outputs, and interactions. This data could be used for analysis, benchmarking, and continuous improvement of connected and autonomous environments.
