This seminar will present results from the two components of a project that guided driver-assistive systems for rural areas. The first component put the system in the hands of snowplow operators to obtain real-world feedback on the value of the system. Included in the discussion of this component will be the technology installed in each vehicle as well as the feedback received by drivers.
The second component of the project was to develop a digital mapping system that could be used to inexpensively create the high-accuracy digital maps needed by the driver-assistive system. An overview of the system developed, as well as the costs associated with making these maps, will be provided.
