Evaluation of Ultra-wideband Radio for Improved Pedestrian Safety at Signalized Intersections

The goal of this project is to increase the safety of signalized intersections for pedestrians with special needs due to limited mobility or vision. This aligns directly with the strategic goal of "Safety" and addresses the topic of "Technological Impacts on Safety." The research outcomes and technology developed under this proposal can be applied to existing intersections throughout the United States without significant changes to the infrastructure other than additional electronics.
