A Short Range Vehicle to Infrastructure System at Work Zones and Intersections

Traditional safety countermeasures at work zones include setting up special signs, installing barriers and a lower speed limit in work zones. For stop sign areas, usually the countermeasure is to remove all the obstructions. For signalized intersections, safety is usually improved by setting up the signal lights in an optimized layout. However, many accidents still happen despite of these traditional methods. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) can provide effective solutions to improve the operations in work zones, stop sign areas and signalized intersections. The purpose of this research is to identify how to improve the traffic safety and achieve better air quality in these areas by using RFID. With the implementation of such advanced warning system, it is envision that crash rates at woke zones and intersections will be greatly reduced and the surrounding environment will be improved.
