Connected vehicle safety application at 94-35W high crash area

Utilize the existing ATM infrastructure on I-94 to test a Vehicle-2-Infrastructure (V2I) and Vehicle-2-Vehicle (V2V) safety application to reduce crashes. The project would develop and test a vehicle-based V2V crash avoidance technology. For vehicles not equipped with V2V communications, a system would be developed utilizing roadside equipmenet that would detect individual vehicles and broadcast a basic safety message to other vehicles. The safety message could be relayed to the motorist through at smart-phone based warning system.
