Module 8: Lesson 1 – Middle & High School – Radar & amp; LiDAR Systems in Intelligent Transportation Systems


Course Description

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 safety, make more efficient use of the roadways to increase capacity and reduce congestion, optimize fuel economy, and provide greater mobility for drivers vulnerable to limitations such as inexperience, increasing age, certain disabilities and other human factors.
  • Note you will use Module 8: for High School & Module 8: for Middle School & High School together for High Schoolers only
  • Learning Outcomes

  • Through videos and discussion, students will explore how autonomous vehicle systems work and how these systems can be simulated through robotics.
  • Students will use a modular robotics system to understand and build sensors.
  • Students will apply their knowledge of the robotics system to build a robot where power and data flow to multiple points on the robot.
  • Students will explore the Bluetooth communication system.
  • Students will design and construct a vehicle or other modular structure that is able to interact with the surrounding environment to simulate Connected Vehicle Technology.
  • Basic Skill Requirements

    NanoSonic Inc. has compiled a series of Middle School & High School lesson plans to engage students in STEM activities.
