Research Spotlight

Development of iCAVE2

The National Science Foundation has awarded Dr. Chunming Qiao and co-principal investigators Drs. Adel Sadek, Qing He, Kevin Hulme, Dimitrios Koutsonikolas, Changxu Wu and Lukasz Ziarek a $1.2 million grant to create a multifaceted research facility for connected and autonomous cars. The University at Buffalo will contribute $500,000 in matching funds toward the project. The UB researchers are also collaborating with Cisco, Carnegie Mellon University and the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI).

The project develops an integrated 5-in-1 instrument (iCAVE2) for Connected and Autonomous Vehicle Evaluation and Experimentation (Watch Video). It is the first-of-its-kind with unprecedented capabilities, not offered by any simulator-based instrument or test-beds in academic, industrial or government-based R&D laboratories. Read more
