Highly personalized traveler information system to be delivered for I-90 and I-94

In a chat with Bernie Wagenblast, of our associate webcaster Transportation Radio, Steve Albert, director of the Western Transportation Institute (pictured), has revealed that a new level of personalization is currently being planned for travel information on I-90 and I-94. The routes, which stretch right across the northwestern states of the USA, are known as the North/West Passage, and already have their own dedicated, cross-state, real-time traffic information website Now, Albert reveals, a mobile app for smart devices is being developed, which will allow regular users of the route to upload a profile that will enable personalized information to be sent to them as and when it becomes available.

Caltrans tests all-new pedestrian crosswalk system, to reduce conflict with right-turning vehicles

In the USA, cars can turn right on a red signal. This helps with traffic flow, but can compromise safety if pedestrians are attempting to cross the junction at the same time. Now Caltrans senior transportation engineer Rob Stinger has come up with a solution: a yellow border of LED lights that appears around "Walk/Don't Walk" signals, which alerts drivers that a pedestrian has pressed the button on the crossing and is waiting to cross. This video has more on how the Yellow Pedestrian Border (YPB) works.

Is this how autonomous vehicles will 'talk' to pedestrians?

As part of a masters thesis in industrial design engineering, Victor Malmsten Lundgren and Tobias Lagström have developed this easy-to-understand system of lights that could be attached to any self-driving car in order to indicate its intentions to pedestrians. With backing from research group Swedish ICT, and in collaboration with Autoliv AB, Volvo Cars, Volvo Group, SAFER and Scania, the system is intended to improve safety in a world where whoever is in the driving seat of is not in full control of that vehicle at all times. Learn about the latest autonomous-vehicle research from the industry’s leading experts at the Autonomous Vehicle Test & Development Symposium 2016. To book your delegate pass click here.
