Research Motivation

Due to the complexity of the environment, detection accuracy and legal constraints, it is unlikely that cyber technologies would completely replace human drivers, especially in the near-term. Building effective CTS applications to improve road safety is a non-trivial challenge, especially when we examine how the driver benefits from the existing and proposed technologies in the presence of Human Factors (HF) related negative factors such as information overload, confusion, and distraction. As a result, research into CTS requires an investigation into the multiple interactions (and influences) among the cyber system, transportation system and the human element.
