Automated Driving Systems (ADS) for Rural America SAM Talk

Presented by

NADS Deputy Director Omar Ahmad; Research Lead Cher Carney; University of Iowa Engineering Professor Stephen Baek

About this talk

The ADS for Rural America project utilizes an automated Ford Transit 350HD platform developed as part of Hexagon's Smart Autonomous Mobility (SAM) solutions portfolio to collect ADS data and passenger impressions while navigating a 47-mile loop of rural Iowa roads. As part of our SAM Talk series for 2021, learn how the National Advanced Driving Simulator (NADS) at the University of Iowa plans to make this data available for ADS developers using a $7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation.
