The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) will host a webinar to highlight the Operational Capability Showcase conducted by the THEA Connected Vehicle Pilot to show the capabilities, intent, and value of the deployment. The showcase also included an interoperability activity, wherein one or more in-vehicle or mobile device from a different CV Pilot Deployment site were shown to be interacting successfully with the THEA deployment.

Sponsored by the USDOT Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (ITS JPO), the Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program is a national effort to deploy, test, and operationalize cutting-edge mobile and roadside technologies and enable multiple connected vehicle applications. These innovative technologies and applications have the potential for immediate beneficial impacts – to save lives, improve personal mobility, enhance economic productivity, reduce negative environmental impacts, and transform public agency operations.

The USDOT selected three agencies as CV Pilot deployment sites: the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT), the New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT), and the Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA). Each site prepared a comprehensive deployment concept to ensure a rapid and efficient connected vehicle capability roll-out. The sites have worked to design, build, and test these deployments of integrated wireless in-vehicle, mobile device, and roadside technologies. Now the THEA Pilot has entered the operational phase, where the tested system has been placed into operational practice and is being maintained in good working order and monitored on a set of key performance metrics to measure its impact.
