Vehicle to Infrastructure Program Safety Applications Project

This report describes the development, evaluation and refinement of three Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) safety applications using Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC)-based over-the- air messages between the infrastructure and vehicles. The safety applications selected for development were a Red Light Violation Warning application, Curve Speed Warning application and Reduced Speed Zone Warning with Lane Closure application. The report details the work completed to define system requirements, develop application algorithms and implement the applications in prototype test vehicles. A flexible, containerized Basic Information Message was developed during the project to deliver required infrastructure data to the vehicle-based applications. Six light vehicles and one heavy truck were equipped with the applications and served as the prototype vehicles in testing and stakeholder outreach demonstrations conducted during the project. Portable infrastructure equipment was also developed to support testing and evaluation of the applications. Testing consisted of objective tests conducted on test tracks and engineering tests conducted on public roads. The test results suggested several specific refinements to the applications and underscored the need to conduct additional on-road testing under real-world conditions to further evaluate application performance. The work was conducted by the Crash Avoidance Metrics Partners LLC V2I Consortium through Federal Highway Administration sponsorship. The V2I Consortium consists of Ford, GM, Honda, Hyundai-Kia, Mazda, Nissan, Subaru, VW/Audi and Volvo Truck
