Data-Driven Synthesis of Hazardous Scenarios at Traffic Intersections

ABOUT THE PROJECT

At a glance

Intersections are the most challenging elements of a transportation network in terms of safety as agents (human or robotic) face high complexity and uncertainties that can lead to wrong decisions and end in crashes. Our goal, in this project, is to automate synthesis of hazardous scenarios for urban intersections through a software toolkit. Our work addresses the following sponsor needs: 1) combining real-world data with simulation for the analysis of automated vehicles; 2) reliable motion prediction for traffic participants in a complex traffic environment, and 3) safe and robust decision making for automated driving in a complex driving environment.
