Bringing Connected Vehicles to a City near You

Connected vehicle implementation is being driven from both the private sector and the USDOT. There have recently been a number of full scale test implementations of vehicle to infrastructure with traffic signal infrastructure in cities around the U.S., most recently in Las Vegas with the Consumer Electronics Show. In addition, the US DOT Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office continues to foster implementation at three connected vehicle pilot deployment sites. These sites are well into deployment with the use of multiple safety and mobility applications on and in proximity to reversible freeway lanes in Tampa, Florida; exploiting vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and intersection communications to improve vehicle flow and pedestrian safety in high-priority corridors in New York City; and using connected vehicle technologies to improve safe and efficient truck movement along I-80 in southern Wyoming. This session presents current information from these four implementations of connected technology.

Learning Objectives:
  • Describe the program and objectives of the connected vehicle application locations.
  • Identify the site specific needs of the initial connected vehicle sites.
  • Understand the applications and their use to achieve desired outcomes of each connected vehicle site.
