Towards Optimizing Traffic Conjunction Design and Traffic Control through Behavior Analysis using Camera Data from
To understand how drivers interact at the micro-level, both objective and complete sets of data are needed for behavior
analysis. This is critical to help design traffic conjunction to optimize the traffic flow. The prevalent approaches use speed
detectors installed in the conjunctions to record traffic speed in a particular cross-sections. This is expensive, and it is
difficult to capture and track the complete traces of all the cars that go through an intersection. We will demonstrate how
videos recorded from hovering drones help acquire traffic information with decimeter-level accuracy, and the potential of
these data in helping better design the traffic junctions.
ODOT UASC AFRL Ohio’s Ground Based Detect and Avoid (GBDAA)
This discussion will focus on the joint effort between the Air Force Research Lab and the Ohio/Indiana UAS Center in
developing a system that allows UAS operations Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BLOS). At the present time, FAA
regulations require the pilot to have visual contact with the UAS at all times.
Researching UAS for Transportation, an Overview of UAS Trends and an Update on ODOT’s UAS Research Project
This discussion will focus on unmanned aerial systems being used in the transportation sector and a brief update to
ODOT's research in this area.
