This seminars is completely free to Loughborough University researchers and will take place from 11:30 to 12:30 followed by a buffet networking lunch from 12:30 to 13:30
Much progress has been made recently in the area of Connected Vehicles (CVs) research and practice. The technologies used in Connected Vehicles have potential to greatly improve safety and the driver's awareness of hazardous conditions. Coupled with low level automation, CVs can achieve even better performance. This seminar will present the results of multiple research projects addressing various issues relevant to CVs. These research projects have addressed issues such as adverse weather, vehicle's platooning, P2V (physical to virtual), I2V (invisible to visible), and CV market penetration, while applying different research tools and analysis techniques which include Microscopic Traffic Simulation, Driving Simulation and field studies. The results have provided evidence for the capability of CVs in addressing several traffic needs and have shown that the market penetration rate (MPR) has a significant impact on the acceptance of CVs. Advanced technologies for CVs are expected to have positive effects on road safety and at the same time computer visualisation techniques could be highly beneficial to traffic safety research and performance in many applications.
