Waving Goodbye to Flaggers - Exploring Alternative Traffic Control Devices
When performing two-lane road maintenance, what is the best way to control traffic for periods ranging from a few hours to a few weeks? Flaggers direct traffic during maintenance sessions on two-lane roads. The goal of this research was to find out whether the automated flagger devices that are used in some other states would help the Ohio DOT. In relation to this, the research investigated issues surrounding flagger devices’ safety, cost, staffing, and quality of traffic control.

Visions from Above & Beyond - Multiple Applications of UAVs in Transportation
Many have recently begun to investigate the use and applications of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in the transportation industry. Researchers at Michigan Tech University have looked at several aspects of these applications as part of a research project with the Michigan Department of Transportation. In their research they used UAVs to analyze roads, take 3D images of bridge decks, record traffic crash scenes, fly under bridges, and investigate various public utility structures.
