About the Presentation

This seminar highlighted the development phases of a traffic information system for work zones using vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication that relies on dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) technology. The traffic information system dynamically acquires important travel parameters (e.g., travel time and back of the queue location) and disseminates these parameters to vehicles that have yet to approach the back of the queue.

The successful implementation of this system could improve traffic mobility by reducing long travel times through work zones. In addition, the system has the potential to reduce the rear-end collisions that frequently occur at the tail end of work-zone congestion by bringing situational awareness to drivers.
