Attn all UT students: join us for a one-day hackathon to explore how humans may help autonomous vehicles learn social norms. Sun, Nov 11 11:30AM to 9:30PM in PCL Learning Lab 1 (Rm 2.370.1). Food provided; prizes for the winning teams!

Your task: Design an easy-to-use interface for drivers to provide their feedback regarding the moral aspect of actions taken by the autonomous vehicle they are in. Your application will be a channel by which humans will be able to improve future technologies and to guide autonomous vehicle toward a behavior that is both safe and acceptable (permissible) by humans.



You will also participate in tutorials about ethical frameworks, reinforcement learning and transportation systems, and discuss in multidisciplinary teams they type of feedback that would be most helpful in promoting "moral" (or ethical) autonomous vehicles.
The winning teams will be awarded gift cards and will advance to the next stage to fully develop their suggested interface, and potentially produce a whitepaper at the end of the semester.

Finally, the ultimate winning team will be invited to use their interface in joint research with the leadership team, possibly leading to a publication of their findings.

Share your thoughts on Austin's bicycle signals in a brief survey!

Last summer, Austin Transportation installed bicycle signal faces at 12 intersections in the Central Austin area. Now, we are asking you to provide feedback on the signals by filling out a short survey before Oct. 5, 2018.

The survey is available here: http://ow.ly/LXVs30lZcqK

By guiding bicycle traffic approaching signalized intersections, bicycle signal faces can increase safety and improve traffic operations for both bicyclists and motorists.

These bicycle signals are part of a collaborative research study between Austin Transportation and the Center for Transportation Research at the University of Texas at Austin. The study is measuring user compliance and safety on the road as well as public perception and knowledge regarding bicycle signals. A preliminary survey was released in January 2017 before the bicycle signals were installed. The purpose of the current survey is to gauge whether public perception and knowledge have changed since the installations.
