V2I Infrastructure Placement and Safety Implications of CAVs in an Interconnected Network

Since transportation is an interconnected system, local traffic adjustments will likely lead to broader impacts through traffic diversion. In this project, the research team will analyze the system-level safety implications considering dynamic decision-making processes of connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) with vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication nodes based on network modeling and microscopic simulation.
