Pedestrian avoidance system installed on a Texas A&M transit busTTI developed a concept of operations plan for designing, testing, piloting, demonstrating and deploying CAV technology hardware and applications to reduce and eliminate crashes involving transit, bicyclists and pedestrians. A pilot test was also conducted of the Mobileye Shield + collision avoidance system on a Texas A&M University bus in Phase I of the project. In Phase II, TTI is designing, developing and piloting a Smart Intersection/Smart Bus application with buses automatically communicating with smart traffic signals to provide visual and audio warnings to bicyclists and pedestrians. A smartphone app is also being designed, developed and piloted for bicyclists and pedestrians at the Smart Intersection.
