UFTI Team Selected as Finalist for ITE’s Vision Zero Sandbox Design Competition

Congratulations to Dr. Siva Srinivasan, Dr. Rui Guo, Dr. Karla Rodrigues-Silva, and Dr. Gustavo de Andrade for representing the UFTI in ITE’s Vision Zero Sandbox Challenge. The UFTI team has been selected as one of two finalists for the Professional Competition category.

This year’s goal was to develop a methodology that used automated conflict data and traditional safety metrics to create low-cost solutions for a variety of intersections in Bellevue, Washington. The UFTI team analyzed data on crashes and “near-misses” to identify the priority locations and to determine appropriate low-cost countermeasures for each location. The team also presented the expected impacts of these countermeasures on both safety and multimodal operational performance following recent UFTI research and development.

The UFTI team will present their solutions to the judges and the attendees at a session in the Virtual Annual Meeting on Tuesday, July 20, 2021 from 4:00-5:30 p.m. EDT
