PAVE Virtual Panel – “Open Roads Ahead: Using Big Data to Predict Rural AV Performance”

PAVE Virtual Panel – “Open Roads Ahead: Using Big Data to Predict Rural AV Performance”

In the absence of city traffic, rural roads may seem safer than their urban counterparts. However, according to research by the GHSA, rural roads are disproportionately deadly. While only 19% of the population lives in rural areas, almost 50% of traffic fatalities occur on their roads.

To date, most autonomous vehicle testing has been conducted in urban areas, making it difficult to address the safety concerns of rural driving. But a joint effort between DriveOhio, TRC, and Youngstown State University is working to change that. The team is working to demonstrate how connected and automated vehicles could improve safety for drivers, passengers, and other travelers in rural settings. Join us to hear how they’re harnessing big data to examine roadway safety, how their findings can be used to reduce fatalities, and what the future of AVs looks like in rural areas.

Panelists include Andrew Wallace of DriveOhio, Dr. Jay Kerns of YSU, and Dr. Punit Tulpule of TRC. They will also be joined by YSU graduate students Christoffer Splain, Vince Hepola, Christopher Bluhm, Felix Kina, and Emmanuel Asamanyuah, as well as undergraduate students Tyler Wood, Anthony Micco, and Nick Winsen.
