Project Description:Through a set of pooled fund studies, the Virginia Department of Transportation will work with Federal, State, and local departments of transportation to establish a multiphase program to facilitate the development, field demonstration, and deployment of connected vehicle infrastructure applications. The participants in this program will complete applied research to create deployable connected vehicle infrastructure applications. The purpose of this program is to provide a means to conduct the work necessary for infrastructure providers to play a leading role in connected vehicles, as described in the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials strategic plan. All efforts will be coordinated with the partners currently engaged in the Connected Vehicles program, namely the U.S. Department of Transportation and automobile manufacturers. Pooled fund members include Virginia, California, Florida, Michigan, New York, Wisconsin, Washington, Minnesota, Texas, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maricopa County, and the Federal Highway Administration. The membership fee is $50,000. Dynamic Mobility Application Program research in collaboration with Connected Vehicles Pooled Fund Study partners will also be conducted. Applications research will be identified by Pooled Fund Study partners and oversight will be conducted by Federal Highway Administration and Pooled Fund Study Partner States.
Start Date: June 1, 2009
End Date: July 31, 2014
Goals: The main objective of the Connected Vehicle Pooled Fund Study is to prototype and test practical infrastructure-oriented applications that lead to deployment rather than developing theoretical applications.
Test Methodology: various
Expected Benefits:The CTS PFS projects are expected to lead to early deployment of connected vehicle infrastructure.
