Abstract (300 words maximum)

Rollover Vehicle-to-Everything Antenna

Poster Presentation Undergraduate Student: Aya Alazzawi

Research Mentor(s): Dr. Billy Kihei

Soft robotics is a new field of engineering ready to be explored, because of its use of unconventional materials it can withstand copious amounts of stress which makes it ideal for applications involving vehicular accidents. In this groundbreaking work, we attempt to integrate soft robotics technologies with Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communications. Specifically, we introduce the preliminary planning stages for creating a novel V2X rollover antenna that can reduce road deaths and provide more reliable accident data. An up-right roof-mounted antenna could be damaged during a roll-over accident thereby severely limiting the V2X radio from providing reliable warning signals to other V2X equipped vehicles or infrastructure. Our proposed soft robotic V2X antenna will deploy from beneath the car using pneumatic actuation and extend up until it is able to send a reliable signal. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first attempt within the literature to address a rollover accident use-case for V2X communications.
