A few recent examples of our work with connected and automated vehicles (CAVs):
- How do human interact with automated vehicle technologies, such as during transitions of control and measuring trust in the technology?
- How do automated vehicles perform on rural roadways?
- How can connected vehicles communicate with each other to improve safety in rural settings?
Project spotlight: ADS for Rural America
ADS for Rural America is funded by the U.S. DOT and aims to improve safety on our roadways, represent rural roads in AV research, and broaden mobility for those in rural areas.

Connected vehicle example
Blind corners and cresting hills can be dangerous spots on rural Iowa roads. In a project with the Iowa DOT, we tested an alert system that alerts drivers to hazards on the road before the driver may see them.
