U.S. DOT Announces Public Meeting Seeking Stakeholder Input to the Federal Highway Administration’s Intelligent Network Flow Optimization (INFLO) Bundle

The Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Programs Office would like to host a free public meeting to obtain stakeholder input on concepts, opportunities and needs for the Intelligent Network Flow Optimization (INFLO).   The public meeting is set for December 18, 2013 Southeast Michigan and will continue all day. 

The public meeting will be webcast at no charge.

Project Description

The Intelligent Network Flow Optimization (INFLO) bundle represents a collection of three high-priority transformative applications identified by the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) Dynamic Mobility Applications (DMA) Program that target maximizing roadway throughput, reducing crashes, and reducing fuel consumption through the use of frequently collected and rapidly disseminated multi-source data drawn from wirelessly connected vehicles, travelers’ communication devices, and infrastructure.  These three applications are queue warning (Q-WARN), dynamic speed harmonization (SPD-HARM), and cooperative adaptive cruise control (CACC).  The purpose of this project is to develop a prototype of dynamic speed harmonization with queue warning, and conduct a small-scale demonstration or a controlled environment test of the prototype.
