Test V2X technology interoperability on multiple intersections
The connected and automated vehicle V2X Lab at GoMentum Station is a state-of-the-art laboratory to test multiple vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technologies in a safe environment. The lab includes advanced traffic signal controllers, video vehicle detectors, advanced IP switches, traffic signal cabinets and DSRC/C-V2X/5G equipment. The lab is well suited for cities and transit agencies to test applications to enhance safety and reduce congestion on their streets. The lab (shown at the right) has five intersections with three of them operational.
Vehicle-to-everything or V2X technology enables vehicles to communicate to their surroundings including traffic signals, other vehicles, infrastructure, bicyclists and pedestrians. V2X leverages wireless protocols such as dedicated short range communication (DSRC) or cellular V2X (C-V2X) to enable this communication.
Vehicle-to-everything technology has the opportunity to improve traffic flow and enhance road safety, by enabling traffic signals and vehicles to exchange information, such as signal-time and -phase, vehicle position and speed. Sharing this information with non-line-of-sight vehicles can avoid collisions. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration estimates that by implementing just two V2X applications we can prevent over 1000 deaths per year.
A typical intersection at GoMentum Station is depicted to the left.
The V2X Lab has controllers, video detection units, DSRC/C-V2X equipment and data switches that make up a modern city intersection. Currently the Lab has equipment from following vendors:
The Lab provides training in the setup of this equipment as well as tutorials on various technologies. Please check out our training section for more information.
Multiple technologies deployed at the Lab make it easier than ever to find the right technology fit for your needs and applications.
We offer a comprehensive tutorial on V2X technology as well as hands on training on equipment setup.
