The Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) has been awarded $7 million in federal grant funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation to study automated driving systems for rural roads without high-definition maps and with no or low-quality road signs or markings.
The rules of the road are changing. Algorithms that are used to help predict driver behavior in years past are facing a changing landscape as more and more automated vehicles are on roadways. The emergence of these automated vehicles is just one aspect of roadway safety that is covered by Dr. Dominique Lord’s new book “Safe Mobility: Challenges, Methodology and Solutions.”
Creating and maintaining a long-term environment friendly to innovation was the topic of conversation at the Exploring Innovation Frontiers Initiative (EIFI) Southern Regional Dialogue hosted by the Texas A&M University College of Engineering and the U.S. Council on Competitiveness on Nov. 15 in Houston.
The concept of autonomous cars and connected vehicles is simple enough to understand, but the actual implementation of the technology involved raises questions ranging from the technical to the legal and even the philosophical.
