Mobility

CCAT advocates for the implementation of new infrastructure to accommodate vehicles with advanced levels of automation. This may entail making adjustments to the existing physical infrastructure and establishing a sophisticated digital infrastructure to facilitate the operation of connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs), especially in complex traffic scenarios. CCAT explores and develops cooperative driving automation (CDA) applications, which can effectively alleviate both recurrent and non-recurrent traffic congestion on highways and major roads. Additionally, CCAT is keen on investigating the tradeoffs between the benefits and costs of individual sensing versus cooperative sensing for CAVs. The research findings from these proposed initiatives will offer timely support to government agencies in formulating policies that guide the development and deployment of CDA.
