Using Connected Vehicle Technologies to Solve Real-World Operational Problems

The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) is supporting the advancement of connected vehicle technology with a pilot deployment program that is uncovering what barriers remain and how to address them, documenting lessons learned, and serving as a template assisting other early CV technology deployments. The USDOT awarded cooperative agreements collectively worth more than $45 million to three pilot sites being led by the New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT); the Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA); and the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) to implement a suite of connected vehicle applications and technologies tailored to meet their region’s unique transportation needs, ranging from dense urban grid networks to isolated high-plains interstates. As of 2021, the New York City and Wyoming pilot sites are in the operate and maintain phase, where system impact is being monitored on a set of key performance measures, while Tampa has completed Phase 3 and is currently performing follow-up work focused on spectrum testing and interoperability capabilities with OEMs.
