2019 Connected Vehicle and Automated Vehicle Survey

The 2019 Connected Vehicle and Automated Vehicle (CV/AV) Survey was administered as part of an ongoing effort by the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Joint Program Office (JPO) to track the deployment of ITS. The 2019 CV/AV Survey is the first in a new series of surveys that focuses only on CV and AV technologies. It was designed to address the following key questions:

  • What are current levels of CV and AV testing/deployment?
  • What are agencies’ level of readiness with respect to CV and AV?
  • What are the key challenges and barriers to CV and AV deployment?
  • What assistance/resources are needed to overcome challenges and barriers?

The 2019 CV/AV survey utilized freeway, arterial, and transit agency contact lists developed for previous DTS. These lists included agencies from 75 large metropolitan areas and 30 medium size cities. Invitations to the online survey were sent to 753 freeway management, arterial management, and transit management agencies. Online data collection ran from October 7th to December 31st 2019. Contacts received several reminders, by email and phone to encourage participation. The final response rate was 60 percent, resulting in 475 completed surveys (66 freeway management, 301 arterial management, and 108 transit management).
