Automated & Connected Vehicle (AV/CV) Test Bed to Improve Transit, Bicycle & Pedestrian Safety

  1. 1. Automated and Connected Vehicle (AV/CV) Test Bed to Improve Transit, Bicycle, and Pedestrian Safety Smart Transport Symposium II August 5, 2016 Austin, Texas TxDOT Research Project 0-6876 Wade Odell, TxDOT Research Project Manager Katie Turnbull, TTI Research Supervisor
  2. 2. Research Project Objectives  Identify Safety Concerns Related toTransit, Bicyclist, and Pedestrian Interactions  Identify AV/CVTechnology toAddress and Help Mitigate These Concerns  Identify Concepts and Partners for Demonstration,Testing, and Deployment
  3. 3. Project Outcomes  Case Studies and Literature Review  Stakeholder Meetings andWorkshops  Technology Review  Review Local, State, and Federal Regulations  ConceptApplications for Near-TermTests  Identify Possible Partners  Develop Concept of Operation (ConOps) Plan
  4. 4. Transit, Bicycle, and Pedestrian Interactions  Turning Buses and Crosswalks  Buses and Bike Lanes  Park-and-Ride Lots  Bike Racks on Buses Potential Applications  CollisionAvoidance with: o Turning Buses, Bicyclists, and Pedestrians o Straight LineTravel of Buses, Bicyclists, and Pedestrians o Fixed Objectives and Hazards  Bike Rack-on-Buses Safety
  5. 5. Pilot – TAMU BUS and Mobileye Shield+TM  TAMUTransportation Services  TxDOT  Mobileye & Rosco  TTI
  6. 6. Pilot – TAMU BUS and Mobileye Shield+TM
  7. 7. Mobileye Shield+TM Cameras  Cameras Installed to Monitor Front and Sides of the Bus  Side Cameras Look Forward and Backward  Front Facing CamerasAimed through theWindshield
  8. 8. Mobileye Shield+TM Driver Experience Safety status indicator – warnings to driver about potential crashes Camera/sensor location
  9. 9. Mobileye Shield+TM Pilot  Accurately Detected Pedestrians and Bicyclists  Positive Feedback fromTAMU Bus Drivers
  10. 10. Concept of Operations Test Bed Vision  Establish aTest Bed to Research, Develop,Test, Pilot, and DeployAV/CVTechnologies to ImproveTransit, Bicyclist, and Pedestrian Safety  Test Bed includes theTAMUS RELLIS Campus, theTAMU Campus, andTransit Systems and Communities throughout the State  TheVision will be Realized with the Participation ofTxDOT, TTI,TAMU, and Numerous Public and Private Sector Partners
  11. 11. RELLIS Campus TAMU Campus
  12. 12. Overarching Goals  Improve the Safe Interaction ofTransit, Bicyclists, and Pedestrians  Leverage Public and Private Resources  Provide Objective and UnbiasedAssessments ofTechniques andTechnologies  ProvideTransferrable Lessons Learned to Prospective Deployers
  13. 13. Near-Term Applications  Smart Buses with Sensors and Cameras  Smart Intersections  Smart Bicycles with Sensors  Smart Pedestrians with Apps  Smart Bike Racks
  14. 14. Mid-Term Applications  PartialVehicle Automation o Sensors and Cameras on Buses Linked toAutomated Braking o Avoid Collision with Straight Line andTurning Buses, Bicyclists, and Pedestrians, and with Fixed Objects and Hazards  AlreadyAvailable on ConsumerAutos o BMW, Infiniti, Mercedes,Tesla,Volvo
  15. 15. Long-Term Application  AutonomousTransitVehicles
  16. 16. Current Project Status  Background Research, StakeholderWorkshops, and Roundtable Forums Completed  Concept of Operations and Final Report Submitted to TxDOT o Includes Potential Near-, Medium-, and Long-Term Applications forTesting o Proposes PotentialTest Partners  Pilot Mobileye Shield+TM onTAMU Campus
