OBJECTIVE

Explore practical solutions to improving the efficiency and accuracy of autonomous vehicle decision-making and pedestrian’s safety through the development of a vehicle-pedestrian integration system.

APPROACH

The following will be developed:

  • A practical system to increase pedestrian positioning accuracy
  • A human factor-based big data analytic method to classify pedestrian behavior
  • A zone model to detect the pedestrian vehicle interaction threshold.

Field tests will also be completed to evaluate the existing hardware capacity and proposed system.

OUTCOMES

  • An advanced pedestrian positioning system that can be attached to personal wearable devices
  • An algorithm to classify pedestrian behavior
  • An algorithm to identify the effective range for pedestrian-vehicle interaction
  • A complete V2P system (at pedestrian end)
