Details

Drivers and wildlife can be protected simultaneously. TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, November 18, 2020 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM Eastern that will discuss Roadside Animal Detection Systems (RADS). These systems use sensors to detect animals, classify potential threats, and trigger driver warning systems. Presenters will describe emerging hardware and software technologies for RADS, including price point, detection range, accuracy, and speed of warning.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Environmental Analysis and Ecology.

Some registrants will need to pay $95 to attend this webinar. Sign into MyTRB.org to view registration information.

Webinar agenda and presenters

  1. RADS and Artificial Intelligence: Fraser Shilling, University of California, Davis
  2. LiDAR: Hao Xu, University of Nevada, Reno
  3. Buried cables and other technology: Andrew Alden, Virginia Transportation Technology Institute
  4. Question and answer session: Moderated by Nova Simpson, Nevada Department of Transportation

The first 60 minutes of the webinar will be for presentations and the final 30 minutes will be reserved for audience questions.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify hardware that detects and classifies animals along roads
  2. Determine when RADs make economic sense
  3. Compare RAD approach with more conventional wildlife fencing and crossing structures
