Data Analytics and Evaluation of the Gainesville Trapezium Connected Vehicle Signal Phasing and Timing (SPaT) Deployment Project

The overall goal of this project is to evaluate the efficacy of dedicated short range communication (DSRC) in improving efficiency and safety within a network of signalized intersections. Besides Florida Department of Transportation ( FDOT) engineers, the research team will be closely working with the selected vendor for deployment (Siemens Mobility, Inc.), and the CoG engineers for collecting data required for performance evaluation of this project. The research team will also store data collected from Automated Traffic Signal Performance Measures (ATSPM) in addition to data collected from connected vehicles (CV) devices and other systems in a cloud-based server. The collected data will be analyzed to understand the trends in CV adoption and the effects of CV market penetration on efficiency and safety. The data will also facilitate conducting before and after studies to evaluate the operational and safety benefits of CV applications.
