Free Public Webinar Series on the Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program: Device Acquisition and Installation
The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) will host a free webinar for each Connected Vehicle Pilot site about the connected vehicle devices being acquired and installed as part of the deployment. Representatives from each pilot site will provide an overview of their approach to identifying the type and number of devices, equipment, and software-based capabilities that needed to be acquired for the pilot. The webinar will also address their approach to engaging with vendors and getting the devices in hand and installed while adhering to a stringent installation schedule.
Sponsored by the USDOT's 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, and transform public agency operations.
The USDOT awarded three cooperative agreements, collectively worth more than $45 million, to three agencies: the Wyoming Department of Transportation (DOT), New York City DOT (NYCDOT), and Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA). From September 2015 to September 2016, each site prepared a comprehensive deployment concept to ensure a rapid and efficient connected vehicle capability roll-out. Now, the three sites are wrapping up Phase 2 where they have worked to design, build, and test these deployments of integrated wireless in-vehicle, mobile device, and roadside technologies.
