Module 2: Lesson 1 – Middle School – Connected Vehicles


Course Description

Vehicles that communicate with each other creates possibilities whereby the vehicles themselves can work together to protect against collisions, erratic behavior of other drivers, or unexpected roadway conditions. This STEM lesson introduces students to the basic ideas of how vehicles can be interconnected to each other as well as to the transportation infrastructure, to provide driver safety prompts as well as direct vehicle control.
