All three of the USDOT Connected Vehicle (CV) Pilots have moved into phase two – design, build and test – and representatives from the Wyoming, New York City and Tampa sites are sharing insights and answering questions at the USDOT's booth at ITS World Congress.
The pilots are part of a national e ort to deploy, test and operationalise cutting-edge mobile and roadside technologies and enable CV applications to save lives, improve personal mobility, enhance economic productivity, and reduce environmental impacts. The project started in 2015 and will continue through 2019. In addition, CV Pilot reps will be speaking at the USDOT booth on Wednesday, November 1 – New York City at 9am; Tampa at 10am; and Wyoming at 11am.
The Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA), host of the Tampa CV Pilot, will bring connected vehicles to the real world as it presents the programme's first public demo on November 13, in conjunction with the 2017 Florida Automated Vehicles (FAV) Summit. Four vehicles will be equipped with CV technology for the demo, which will traverse the expressway reversible express lane.
