The Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (ITS JPO) will unveil a new connected vehicle training workshop at ITS America's 25th Annual Meeting and Expo. The course, based on the successful Connected Vehicle 101 classes that the ITS JPO has been conducting since 2013, will be held on May 31, 2015, in the Welk Room of the Omni William Penn Hotel.

This instructor-led workshop builds on the Connected Vehicle 101 workshop by providing additional details about future vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure applications. It will describe initial considerations for deploying the enabling technology such as:

•    Identifying regional and local transportation challenges

•    Developing deployment concepts

•    Integrating your connected vehicle project into ongoing operations

•    Determining the kinds of data to collect and share

•    Using the Connected Vehicle Reference Implementation Architecture (CVRIA) to identify the key interfaces across the connected vehicle environment.

The objective of the workshop is to prepare transportation managers, project engineers, and operations staff for participating in a connected vehicle pilot deployment. Connected vehicle workshops are part of the ITS JPO's Professional Capacity Building (PCB) Program.

The ITS PCB Program uses both an internal website and also works with ITS industry partners to deliver these training resources. The program uses various delivery approaches including e-learning, archived webinars, e-books, and in-person delivery.

The ITS PCB Program is responsible for creating, operating, and maintaining a comprehensive ITS learning environment. The program is a critical driver of effective, accelerated implementation and use of ITS technologies and applications. Many ITS technologies are deployment-ready; while connected vehicle systems and applications are moving rapidly toward their early implementation stages. Therefore, it is essential that the existing and emerging transportation workforce is armed with the competencies required for successful, rapid adoption of this broad set of systems and technologies.
