Safe Operation of Automated Vehicles at Intersections

Figure of common intersection conflict scenarios

This project seeks to remove one important cause of intersection crashes: drivers, pedestrians and cyclists make mistakes because they lack sufficient information about the movement of others as they proceed through an intersection. There is spatial and temporal uncertainty. This missing information can be supplied by an 'intelligent intersection'. Learn more.
