Comprehensive CAV Research, Working Group Support, and Pilot Studies

This report reviews the developments in Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV) technologies across various Departments of Transportation (DOTs) and CAV pilot projects in the United States. The review identifies growing implementation of C-V2X communication technologies and fruitful collaboration between various DOTs, academia, and private sector partners. The report also reviews the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) CAVe-In-a-Box, a portable piece of equipment enabling rapid C-V2X deployment by integrating traffic signal controllers, roadside units (RSUs), V2X hubs (or another open-source application), onboard units (OBUs), and other devices. Several open-source tools are designed to support CAV deployment are also discussed. The report then describes the Autonomous Wheelchair (AW) project at Morgan State University, which strives to improve mobility for individuals with disabilities in complex surroundings like airports using sensors and cameras for autonomous navigation. The report concludes with a discussion of the next phases of the project, emphasizing future collaboration and raising awareness of other practical applications of CAV technologies.
