Webinars/Information on Connected Vehicles
In September 2016, three Connected Vehicle Pilot sites, (Tampa/THEA, ICF/Wyoming, and New York City Department of Transportation) will embark on a new phase of activity to design, build, and test the nation's most complex and extensive deployment of integrated wireless in-vehicle, mobile device, and roadside technologies. These technologies and applications have been brought together in innovative ways to have an immediate impact-save lives, improve personal mobility, enhance economic productivity, reduce environmental impacts, and transform public agency operations.
Over the past 12 months, each site has prepared a comprehensive deployment concept to ensure a rapid and efficient connected vehicle capability roll-out. Now the three sites will embark on a new 20-month phase to design, build, and test the nation's most complex and extensive deployment of integrated wireless in-vehicle, mobile device, and roadside technologies.
