OBJECTIVE

Develop a data collection and management system that collects and archives infrastructure data for both real-time and off-line access, analysis and visualization to support CAV testing.

APPROACH

  1. This project aims at developing a data collection and management system for Mcity infrastructure, including traffic signals, vehicle detectors, and roadside units for both real-time and off-line access, analysis and visualization.
  2. A connected vehicle-based control interface device (CVCID) will be deployed to collect data from different equipment at each intersection.  All collected data will be forwarded to the MTC server database in real-time.
  3. A user interface will be designed to allow end users and administrators to access the data.  The CVCID will also serve as an open platform to facilitate the development and testing of future V2I applications.
  4. Corresponding application programming interfaces (APIs) and interfaces will be developed and sample applications will be built to illustrate the concept.

OUTCOMES

A data collection and management system for Mcity infrastructure, including CVCIDs, database server, user interface, and open infrastructure APIs and functions.
