Webinar: Energy-Efficient Adaptive Cruise Control for Electric Connected and Autonomous Vehicles
Date: March 8, 2018
Time: 11:00 am to 12:00 pm MT/1:00 pm to 2:00 pm ET
Cost: Free
Organization: USDOT ITS Joint Program Office

This presentation proposes an energy-efficient adaptive cruise control, called Energy-Efficient Electric Driving Model (E3DM), for electric, connected, and autonomous vehicles (e-CAVs) in a traffic stream with mixed autonomous and human-driven vehicles. E3DM is able to maintain high energy efficiency of regenerative braking by adjusting the spacing between the leading and the following vehicles. Moreover, a power-based energy consumption model is proposed to estimate the on-road energy consumption for battery electric vehicles, considering the impact of ambient temperature on auxiliary load. Using the proposed energy consumption model, the impact of E3DM on vehicle energy consumption is investigated. In particular, single-lane vehicle dynamics in a traffic stream with mixed e-CAVs and human-driven vehicles are simulated. The result shows that E3DM outperforms existing adaptive cruise control strategies based on Intelligent Driver Model (IDM-ACC) and the Nissan Model (Nissan-ACC) in terms of energy consumption. Moreover, higher market penetration of e-CAVs may not result in better energy efficiency of the entire fleet. The reason is that more e-CAVs in the traffic stream results in faster string stabilization which decreases the regenerative energy.

Webinar: A Self-Monitoring BLE Network to Support Situation Awareness for the Visually Impaired in GNSS-Unfriendly Environments
Date: March 8, 2018
Time: 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm MT/3:30 pm to 4:30 pm ET
Cost: Free
Organization: University of Minnesota Roadway Safety Institute

Bluetooth low-energy (BLE) technology has become an important component of many applications. Researchers at the University of Minnesota have developed a smartphone-based system that uses a network of BLE beacons to provide location-specific traffic and navigational information to people who are visually impaired. To ensure information integrity and security, a self-monitoring methodology was developed by reprogramming the firmware of each BLE beacon to monitor its peers in the BLE network.

This seminar will present methodologies used to model the BLE signal characteristics and reduce environmental uncertainty in an outdoor environment. The objectives of this work are to provide a reliable positioning solution in a GNSS-unfriendly environment and successfully detect the changes of a BLE network that would indicate a problem (such as vandalism or loss of power) with the network. With the self-monitoring network, researchers can locate the smartphone and ensure information associated with each BLE beacon provides the correct location to reliably support wayfinding for the visually impaired in a transportation network.

Webinar: Supporting Great Places and Thriving Downtowns Through Strategic Parking
Date: March 22, 2018
Time: 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm MT/2:00 pm to 3:00 pm ET
Cost: Free
Organization: Community Builders

Parking management can represent a conundrum for small city downtowns. The policy prescriptions offered on websites and in journal articles and books (e.g., Donald Shoup's "High Cost of Free Parking") may seem out of reach for communities with limited resources and limited appetite for high impact tactics like paid parking. 

The speakers will discuss how these challenges have been addressed successfully in rural cities and towns, including one of Colorado's premier mountain destinations: downtown Glenwood Springs. This small city with a state highway main street has worked closely with Colorado DOT to survive a massive infrastructure project in the heart of its downtown, while at the same time implementing parking measures ranging from a new public parking garage to removal of on-street parking along 7th Street (aka Restaurant Row).
