Safely Operating ADS in Challenging Dynamic Scenarios: An optimized Automated Driving Corridor Demonstration

The project will define, develop, and demonstrate key dynamic scenarios and their potential solutions for safe interaction of ADS-equipped vehicles in a Northern Virginia corridor optimized for vehicle automation. With the overarching vision of a transportation system where ADS-equipped vehicles operate safely and predictably in highly dynamic interactive scenarios, this project will collect data for ADS development, safety analyses, and rulemaking considerations.
