While studying at University of Missouri, Dr. Kianfar developed a connected vehicle simulation test-bed. The simulation test-bed provided a foundation to further investigate the various applications of connected vehicle technology. The test-bed was used to develop a framework for the placement of roadside equipment units (RSEs) in an urban network.
