Radio Frequency ID Tags to Enhance Truck Safety Submitted by: California PATH Program: James Misener Raytheon Company, Arizona (subcontractor): Eric Mattingly Duration: 2 years 2 years Objective: Deliver a proof-of-concept of a near-term Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tagging system to improve the reliability of rear- end collision warning systems. RFID tags could be placed on bridges, guardrails and road signs to provide information to in-vehicle systems such as vertical clearance and as a safety systems. Raytheon to develop the three primary components of a 24GHZ K-Band RFID system: Transponders (tags), Interrogators (readers) and Information Processing Algorithms.
Lane Marking/Striping to Improve Image Processing Lane Departure Warning Submitted by: Turnpike Enterprise of : Stephen Austin Turnpike Enterprise of Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) : Stephen AustinDuration: 2years Objective: FDOT proposes to evaluate if improvement can be made to typical roadway striping/marking that would enhance the performance of operational lane departure warning systems and, if so, can these improvements implemented in a cost-effective manner. The FDOT will test a wide selection of different stripping/marking conditions on limited access highways in various lighting, weather and traffic conditions to evaluate their impact on in-vehicle system performance.
Integrated Multi-Channel Vehicle-Vehicle and Vehicle-Roadside Communications for ITS Submitted by: California PATH Program, Dr Raja Sengupta Daimler Chrysler Research North America(subcontractor): Daniel Jiang Duration: 3 years Objective: Develop and test a multi-channel wireless communication protocol for North American 5.9 GHz DSRC technology that is currently under standardization. This project will develop protocols that address the demands of safety applications while preserving the valuable versatility of DSRC.
Passive roadside reflectors and communications systems for improvement of radar reliability Submitted by: University of Minnesota, Dr. Rajesh Rajamani Duration: 2 years Objective: Develop roadside reflectors that reflect radar radiation and allow the radars to see around curves and on uphill and downhill grades. Additionally, to develop roadside beacons that will provide an alternate solution to this major problem experienced with radar sensors.
