Smart and Connected Vehicle Frameworks

With the coming epoch of connected vehicles and self-driving vehicles, professor Changxu (Sean) Wu at ISE is leading an NSF-funded research team at UB to investigate the human driver behavior in operating connected vehicles and self-driving vehicles.

The goal of the project is to build a computational cyber transportation-human framework to quantify the effects of design parameters of those vehicle systems on human performance and behavior. This research project will significantly improve human traveler safety by addressing potential human-transportation systems integration problems.
