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 …
