Smart Transportation and Inclusive Mobility

Environmental Scanning and Public Transit

Project start
September 2017

The main challenge facing self-driving passenger vehicles is maximizing their reliability, and particularly their resilience to weather elements. The challenges posed by snow or blizzards to human operators/drivers could be greatly simplified with the help of semi-autonomous driving technology designed to assist drivers.
