The US Department of Transportation (USDoT) has collated data from three connected vehicle (CV) studies into a digestible format which is now available to transportation authorities.

The easily understood information in what the department calls this 'Data Story' is designed to help agencies navigate datasets when setting up CV systems.

The department’s ITS DataHub hosts CV data from the Tampa and Wyoming CV pilot sites, with the New York site’s data expected to be added in the future.

Datasets include basic safety messages, traveller information messages as well as signal phase and timing information.

Data Story provides an overview of each CV pilot, describes the types of data available and walks users through how to access the various datasets.

ITS DataHub provides a single point of entry to discover the publicly available USDoT ITS research data.

By providing access to these data, the organisation aims to enable third-party research into the effectiveness of emerging ITS technologies, preliminary development of third-party applications and harmonisation of data across similar collections.
