Final project for HF 315 Automation & Systems Issues in Aviation
Level 2 semi-autonomous vehicles (SAVs) do not have a streamlined system in place to communicate with vulnerable road users (VRUs) like other drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists. Thus, it was necessary for us to analyze how drivers and VRUs currently convey information to each other on the road. Based on our findings, we developed a conceptual design of an interface that mimicks natural communication processes to make SAVs safer for everyone interacting with these vehicles.
Our conceptual design incorporates a cohesive system of three AI vision cameras, a combination LED message board and projector housing mounted on the grille, speakers mounted on the A-pillars and front grille, and an adaptive tone signaling component.
This project required collaboration and critical thinking. I was tasked with:
Our final design was sent to General Motors for prototype consideration. Read our story on my business website.
