Module 10: Lesson 1- High School- Intelligent Transportation Systems- Smart Work Zone

5/5

Course Description

Lesson:1-Connected vehicle (CV) safety applications are designed to increase awareness of what is happening in the environment as people drive, walk, or bike within our transportation system. In this lesson, students will recognize the need for intelligent transportation technology and connected vehicles within work zones on the roadway. Students will develop ideas on how ITS systems can improve both worker and driver safety within these areas
Lesson:2-Connected vehicle (CV) safety applications are designed to increase awareness of what is happening in the environment as people drive, walk, or bike within our transportation system. In this lesson, students will be introduced to the LilyPad ProtoSnap Development Board and its components. Students will examine and understand Arduino coding language and use the Arduino language to experiment with controlling the various components of the LilyPad ProtoSnap board.
Lesson:3- Connected vehicle (CV) safety applications are designed to increase awareness of what is happening in the environment as people drive, walk, or bike within our transportation system. In this lesson, students will simulate the usage of ITS systems and connected vehicle sensors to alert drivers to upcoming work zone areas and the presence of highway personnel. Demonstrations will also include alerting work zone personnel of potential vehicle hazards.
Lesson:4-Connected vehicle (CV) safety applications are designed to increase awareness of what is happening in the environment as people drive, walk, or bike within our transportation system. In this lesson, students will think about how ITS technologies in a work zone could improve safety for both the driver as well as highway workers. Students will design an ITS system and describe how this system would work incorporating their Smart Suit technology.
  • Note you will use Module 10: for High School & Module 10: for Middle School & High School together for High Schoolers only
  • Learning Outcomes

    Following a series of tasks, students will design a hazardous intersection that could be encountered by drivers. They will use a Makey Makey circuit board to create a Dynamic Message System that will alert oncoming traffic to the dangerous intersection ahead.
  • Students will create a simple sensor using the Makey Makey circuit board which will be used to simulate a Dynamic Message Sign.
  • Students will then learn how to connect and program the Makey Makey circuit board to allow the sensor to interact with oncoming traffic.
  • Students will use a free internet-based programming software called Scratch to program a sensor. Scratch is compatible with the Makey Makey circuit board.
  • Students will learn how to add sound clips to their Scratch program to create an interactive sensor.
  • Basic Skill Requirements
