At the beginning of 2019, the USF CATS lab started to work on Connected and automated vehicle related research. It is worth to mention that our team is the first team that performed public connected and automated vehicle demonstration across the nation. We have gained nationwide attention and have applied bunch of project.
During 2020 the CATS lab has performed several CAV related research and field experiment. Take advantage of the two L3 test beds, we further investigated the interaction between Human-driven Vehicle (HV) and Connected and Automate Vehicle (CAV), including the car following behavior in the mixed traffic, trade off between headway setting and safety. Our group also developed a self-designed V2I communication and tested it dynamically in the field.

We put a lot of time in tuning our vehicle control algorithm in 2021. The embedded lateral and longitudinal control in Autoware is not capable of controlling the vehicle in complicated traffic condition. Beside the control algorithm, there are several projects in progress.
