NSF REU Site: Cognitive and Autonomous Test Vehicle (CATVehicle)

This research experience for undergraduates (REU) engaged in the myriad of applications that are related to autonomous ground vehicles. This summer, 10 NSF-funded undergraduate students participated in an immersive research experience, sitting side-by-side with graduate researchers and working on one of the most compelling, and complex, applications of today: autonomous systems.

Control of Vehicular Traffic Flow via Low Density Autonomous Vehicles

In the next few decades, autonomous vehicles will become an integral part of the traffic flow on highways. However, they will constitute only a small fraction of all vehicles on the road. This research develops technologies to employ autonomous vehicles already in the stream to improve traffic flow of human-controlled vehicles. The goal is to mitigate undesirable jamming, traffic waves, and to ultimately reduce the fuel consumption.
