FDOT applied for the Federal Accelerated Innovation Deployment (AID) program in April 2017 to test and implement connected vehicle and pedestrian/bicyclist safety applications (active or passive) at 13 signalized intersections and seven mid-block crossings within the core of the University of Florida (UF) campus. The goal of this project is to reduce pedestrian and bicycle crashes and conflicts with vehicles and transit. The routes are SR 26 (University Avenue), US 441 (SW 13th Street), Museum Road, and Gale Lemerand Drive. The project will install at least 20 roadside units (RSU) and 20 passive pedestrian detection systems on these corridors for testing. The project will be led by UF and will consist of before and after analysis.

The following will be tested during this project:

  • Passive pedestrian/bicyclist detection at all locations via detection technologies
  • Real-time notification to transit, motorists, and pedestrians/bicyclists
  • Signal phase and timing data broadcasting with active pedestrian/bicyclist detection via RSUs
