Description of Paper:
ITS has seen many different attempts to improve vehicle safety and mobility. These have included vehicle-to-vehicle communications of dynamic state, roadway-to-vehicle communications of road hazards, vehicle automation, and other systems. However, as effective as some of these systems have been in meeting local objectives, they have been somewhat limited in scope because they typically only focus on a single aspect of a much more complex suite of roadway relationships. This paper summarizes recent research that is examining this wider suite of relationships in the context of roadway safety and mobility. By looking at this full set of relationships between road users, vehicles and then roadway environment, it is possible to ask more meaningful R&D questions, and also to apply a wider array of technologies to the roadway safety problem. It is expected that this approach may lead to substantially more innovative and comprehensive solutions.
