Understanding and Enabling Cooperative Driving (CD for ACV) in New York City: A Data-driven Approach
The NYCDOT Team (NYCDOT and NYU C2SMART) will assist the USDOT in understanding and enabling Cooperative Driving for Advanced Connected Vehicles (CD for ACV) in New York City. In partnership with the USDOT, NYCDOT will identify an area in the CV Pilot site as a location to support Advanced Connected Vehicles (ACVs) to better understand the role of infrastructure in supporting and enabling connected driving in an urban environment. Working with the USDOT, the NYCDOT Team will predefine an area of the NYCDOT CV Pilot site that can be used to support CD for ACV. NYU C2SMART, NYCDOT and USDOT, will collaborate to conduct a research report white paper on the applicability of CD FOR ACV and the urban challenges based on the feedback and the collected data.
Particularly, the NYCDOT Team will provide assistance to leverage their existing network(s) and technical staff in retrieving the existing data to support the following technical areas:
Technical Area #1: Implement CD FOR ACV at intersections to improve safety of road users such as pedestrian and bicyclist. The data from infrastructure may include detected objects at the intersection as contact closures in the detection zone for connected vehicle use to improve situational awareness at the intersection. This technical area will support the new and emerging area of shared perception.
Technical Area #2: Analyze CD FOR ACV at intersections to improve traffic operations of traffic signal control to improve safety and efficiency.
