Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA), California, has awarded Iteris a contract to conduct a Vehicle-to-Infrastructure State of the Practice Review. The study will cover connected vehicle technology between vehicles (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) and will make recommendations for how the OCTA can advance their development and use as the technologies and their applications mature.
Connected vehicle technology, which includes V2V and V2I communications, such as the sharing of traffic signal data with vehicles, offers the potential to reduce road crashes.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that safety applications enabled by V2V and V2I could eliminate or mitigate the severity of up to 80 per cent of non-impaired crashes, including crashes at intersections or while changing lanes.
