Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program: Success Stories

Background

In September of 2015, USDOT selected New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT), Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) and Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA) as the recipients of a combined $42 million in federal funding to pilot next-generation infrastructure and vehicle technology under the Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program.

Lessons Learned

The Program will deploy, test, and operationalize cutting-edge mobile and roadside technologies and enable multiple CV applications, many of which were developed and prototyped by the USDOT Dynamic Mobility Application (DMA) program. The Open Source Application Data Portal (OSADP) is an open source repository of code for connected vehicle applications. Releases on the OSADP are freely available to all registered users. The computer code for each DMA prototype application, and input parameters and custom code for each DMA evaluation simulation, were submitted to the OSADP so that other CV researchers and deployers may take advantage of the developed code. The CV Pilot sites credit the OSADP for providing them with working prototypes of applications. The ability to download these applications meant that the sites did not need to develop the software entirely on their own, saving them both time and resources.
