UFTI Scores a Win at FAV Summit Student Poster Competition


The Florida Automated Vehicle (FAV) Summit, held in Fernandina Beach in late 2022, yielded several winners from UFTI. The annual summit assembles industry leaders from around the world to address technologies, operations and policy issues and is an opportunity for students to present their findings.

Several UFTI students presented posters related to the study of automated, connected, electric and shared (ACES) mobility, operations, law, infrastructure, functional design, cyber security, ethics, aftermarket products, enabling technologies and public policy.

Posters were judged by a panel of researchers for the “best” overall based on the content of the poster, the quality of the visual display of information on the poster, and the ability of the presenter to present the subject matter successfully and succinctly in the poster session.

Leonida Kibet received the 1st place award at the Florida Automated Vehicle (FAV) Summit Poster competition for her poster titled, “State-of-the-Art in Vehicle-To-Pedestrian (V2P) Systems Technology Survey and Recommendations for Effective Deployments.”

Other UFTI students presenting at the event included Bryce Grame, “Evaluating the Operations and Safety Benefits of AI-Driven Driver Information Focused Countermeasures for CAV Technologies,” Victoria Zorbas, “In a Hurry? – Try Going Slower” and Renan Favero, “Exploratory Analysis of Autonomous Shuttle Trajectories Following a Conventional Car.”

The next FAV Summit will be held in Tampa from September 6-8, 2023.
