TSMO Resources on Wrong-Way Driving
Two NOCoE Case Studies cover wrong-way driving prevention systems:
- Thermal Imaging Wrong Way Vehicle Detection System by Arizona DOT
- Making Right on Wrong Way Driver Issues by Michigan DOT
Additionally, several Transportation Technology Tournament teams have focused on wrong-way driving using TSMO, including a finalist team from Florida International University who put together a short presentation on their innovative approach.
