DOT awards more than $45M to three Connected Vehicle Pilot sites for phase two

The US Department of Transportation (USDOT) awarded three cooperative agreements collectively worth more than $45 million to initiate the design/build/test phase of the Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program. Selected in 2015, the Connected Vehicle Pilot sites include Wyoming, New York City, and Tampa. (Earlier post.)

Managed by the 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 technologies and applications have been brought together in innovative ways to have an immediate impact—save lives, improve personal mobility, enhance economic productivity, reduce environmental impacts, and transform public agency operations.

In the first phase of the effort, each site prepared a comprehensive deployment concept to ensure a rapid and efficient connected vehicle capability roll-out. Now, the three sites will embark on a 20-month phase of activity to design, build, and test the nation's most complex and extensive deployment of integrated wireless in-vehicle, mobile device, and roadside technologies.
