A connected vehicle network entails vehicles exchanging information with highway infrastructure and other vehicles using safe, interoperable wireless communications. Networked vehicles are designed to improve traffic safety and mobility, while minimizing environmental impacts. SwRI is a leading provider of software and systems research and development for connected vehicles, and we serve as a test bed for federal, state, and local agencies.
Hardware & Software
SwRI develops machine-learning solutions that enable accurate and real-time data to be transmitted from sensors on vehicles for use by connected vehicle systems. Other solutions include lane-level modeling for use by automated driving systems.
The SwRI team is developing the standards conformance test methods focused on Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) P1609.2-4 DSRC standards.
Traffic System Modeling & Simulation
Understanding exactly how large-scale deployment of cooperative systems will impact traffic systems is important throughout the design process. SwRI possesses significant modeling and simulation (M&S) capability to enable the use of hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing with virtual vehicles that behave and act according to various configurable behavior models in different environments.
