Communications and Radar-Supported Transportation Operations and Planning (CAR-STOP)

The project's research activities will focus on the advancement of the body of knowledge on the use of wireless technology (both communications and radar) to address the transportation safety challenges facing the state (for the purpose of this project, communications refers to the encoding of, and two-way talk, of relevant vehicle-related information, while radar refers to a non-informational sound signal sent by and received by a single vehicle to sense its surroundings). The emphasis will be on both basic research and porting that basic research to applied research in the form of pilot implementation tests.
