Arterial Performance Measures in a Connected Vehicle Environment

Noah Goodall, Brian Smith & Ramkumar Venkatanarayana
Wireless communication between vehicles and the transportation infrastructure will provide significantly more timely and comprehensive information about arterials and their performance. However, most measures-of-effectiveness were developed based on data available from traditional “point” sensors. The information made available in a connected vehicle environment requires new metrics that can fully utilize the data. This paper identifies several new arterial performance metrics made available in a connected vehicle environment, as well as several existing metrics that can...

Vehicle Automation and the Duty to Act

Noah Goodall
The act of driving always carries some level of risk. With the introduction of vehicle automation, it is probable that computer-driven vehicles will assess this changing level of risk while driving, and make decisions as to the allowable risk for itself and other road users.
