By collaborating with another 14 government, industry, and research institutions, Dr. Terry Yang's proposal titled "Visual-Enhanced Cooperative Traffic Operations (VECTOR) System" has been selected for funding by the Department of Energy (DOE) Vehicles Technology Office (VTO). The project will focus on developing a visual-based technology system that largely reduces cooperative driving automation (CDA) costs by utilizing existing vehicle devices and infrastructure units. The project will be led by the University of South Florida with a $6.1M total budget ($3.5M federal share and $2.6M local cost share). Dr. Yang will lead the research efforts at the U with about $1.0M federal share.
