Module 8: Lesson 1- High School- Radar & LiDAR Systems in Intelligent Transportation Systems

Autonomous vehicles or self-driving vehicles are expected to remove the actions of human beings from the transportation equation, which contribute to more than 90% of motor vehicle crashes. Technologies already exist which enable “driverless” vehicles to operate on our roadways and promise many benefits. Innovations at work today are demonstrating the potential to significantly improve …

Module 9: Lesson 1- High School- Dynamic Message Signs Using Makey Makey

Dynamic Message Signs (DMS) use active, changeable displays to enhance roadway safety as part of an intelligent transportation system (ITS). An ITS does not always have to be a large, complex, and expensive system. Sometimes a single DMS with warning lights or a driver feedback display can make a positive difference when strategically applied. DMS …

Module 6: Lesson 1- High School- Congestion Pricing & Flowcharting

Congestion-based tolling is an aspect of intelligent transportation systems that is being implemented frequently on highly-congested road networks in the US and around the world. It is a topic that also lends itself to beginning-level programming, based on its iterative nature. Through discussion, analysis, and a hands-on programming activity, students will be able to understand …

Module 5: Lesson 1- High School- Sustainable & Intelligent Transportation Technology

Transportation vehicles – cars, trucks, buses, trains – consume a substantial percentage of our limited environmental resources. Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) can potentially reduce total resource consumption through the use of programmed travelling patterns that minimize fuel-inefficient commuting routes, and maximize large-scale multimodal system use. Students will investigate ITS-based solutions for reducing fuel consumption and …

Module 4: Lesson 1- High School- Traffic Signal Design

his STEM lesson introduces students to Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) concepts whereby the transportation infrastructure of roadway sensors, signals and communication networks, in combination with our own vehicles, can control traffic signals to minimize wait times and maximize traffic flow efficiency. To introduce and reinforce these ideas, students will observe and count traffic at a …
