Implementing Solutions from Transportation Research and Evaluating Emerging Technologies (I-STREET)

The University of Florida (UF) and its Transportation Institute (UFTI), the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), and the City of Gainesville (CoG) have partnered to create the “smart testbed” on the UF campus and surrounding highway network. The testbed will deploy and evaluate numerous advanced technologies including connected and autonomous vehicles, smart devices, and sensors. lt will also develop and apply novel applications to enhance mobility and safety. These technologies and their application will work within the existing network and will accommodate the presence of conventional vehicles.

The I-STREET testbed deploys the following:

  • Gainesville’s autonomous shuttle (EasyMile)
  • 129 Road Side Units (RSUs)
  • 56 On Board Units (OBUs)
  • 5 Fisheye cameras
