CCAT Sponsored Research Paper Selected as Editor’s Choice by ASCE Journal
Highway agencies continue to seek knowledge of the changes in infrastructure design and management that may be needed to facilitate connected and automated vehicle (CAV) operations. Things may have just gotten a little easier for them with a research paper from CCAT consortium member, Purdue University. A research paper part of a CCAT-funded project has just been selected as the Editor’s Choice in the ASCE Library. Preparing Road Infrastructure to Accommodate Connected and Automated Vehicles: System-Level Perspective, by Tariq Usman Saeed, Bortiorkor N. T. Alabi, and Samuel Labi, proposes a classification of roadway infrastructure and discusses the challenges and opportunities associated with infrastructure preparation for Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs).
The paper presents preliminary and partial results from Design and Management of Highway Infrastructure to Accommodate CAVs, and also identifies stakeholder roles regarding CAV infrastructure provision, and discusses uncertainties regarding CAV market penetration and level of autonomy during the CAV transition period. The Principal Investigators on the project are Samuel Labi, Kumares Sinha, and Mohammad Miralinaghi. Those interested in learning more can find the paper on the ASCE Library website.
