Enhancing the DriveSafety Driving Simulator for Research on Short-Term Construction Work Zone

The goal of this project is to develop a set of software instruments around the DriveSafety simulator for research on short-term construction work zones. The software instruments consists of two parts: (1) A set of tiles, stationary and moving entities that are not available in the DriveSafety simulation software (in particular, entities and dynamics regarding the applications of rumbling strips), but are essential to create scenes and scenarios for driving simulation in short-term construction work zones; (2) a software module that helps create scenarios based on the traffic data acquired from actual short-term work zones. The custom tiles and entities developed in this project lay the foundation for carrying out driving simulation in short-term work zones, and the incorporation of actual traffic data into scenarios will undoubtedly increase the fidelity of the simulation results and is essential to capture the dynamics present in short-term work zones.
