This session highlights practical experience and lessons learned from deployment of connected vehicles as explained by the agencies themselves. Agency experiences on the panel range from the county, state, and local agency level.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how a large city can deploy Connected Vehicles at an unprecedented scale of thousands of vehicles and signals at once
  • Understand how a small to medium county can incrementally implement Connected Vehicle applications
  • Understand how a state DOT can implement a CV solution focused on freight across a region

Moderator: Eric Rensel, Vice President, Gannett-Fleming
