The Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA) and the partnering integrator company Brandmotion have selected Savari Inc. to equip the majority of vehicles with its V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) connected car technology for the USDOT connected vehicle roll-out in Tampa. Tampa becomes the first city to feature Savari’s innovative and life-saving connected car technology following the US Department of Transportation’s new rule for car-to-car communications. Additional DOT connected car deployments are scheduled for New York City and a portion of I-80 in Wyoming this year.

Cars, trucks, buses and trolleys will be retrofitted with Savari’s On-Board-Units (OBUs) and connected car software to enable cars to communicate with each other through Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V), Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) and Vehicle-to-Pedestrian (V2P) software. Savari’s connected car solution in Tampa offers a wide range of transportation efficiency and safety applications.
