Presentation Title: Incorporating Air Pollution Information into CAV Systems
Date/Time: Thursday, April 9th, 2020 | 2:00 PM ET
Abstract: This project studies air pollutants under different traffic congestion scenarios along freeways in the state of Ohio. Connected and Autonomous Vehicle (CAV) technology will then be deployed to communicate this information to freeway travelers via radio channels.
