Cloud-Based Dynamic Warning System

The goal of the proposed system is to expand the benefits of dynamic curve speed warning (CSW) to virtually all potentially dangerous curves within a jurisdiction by providing on-board dynamic warning to vehicles entering a horizontal curve at speeds that may be too high for safe travel. The proposed system will utilize a smartphone and an existing mobile application developed by the research team featuring geo-fencing technologies for warning locations and an online database containing the coordinates for curve locations. This proposed system is also intended to serve as a proof of concept to give automobile manufactures with existing adaptive cruise control and lane assist technology an option for access to local road authority information which these technologies presently do not have.
