PMSS Project Details

 

Project ID:FHWA-PROJ-11-0067
Project Name: Vehicle Positioning and Communications Test Implementation for Initial Capability—Telecommunications and Positioning: Phase II
Status: Active
Contact:
Last Name:Arnold
First Name:James A
Telephone:202-493-3265
E-mail:james.a.arnold@dot.gov
Office: Office of Operations Research and Development
Team:Trans Enabling Technologies Team
Project Description:This effort is intended to be a first implementation of Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) communications supporting Signal Phase and Timing (SPaT). Additional work is planned, but this evaluation and testing supported by the Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center (TFHRC) is intended as a first step to ensure general concepts and designs do not have flaws that would impact other vehicles or overall traffic flow if they were to be implemented on a larger scale.
Laboratories: Saxton Transportation Operations Laboratory
Start Date: September 30, 2011
End Date: August 31, 2013
Goals: This effort is intended to be a first implementation of Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) communications supporting Signal Phase and Timing (SPaT). Additional work is planned, but this evaluation and testing supported by the Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center (TFHRC) is intended as a first step to ensure general concepts and designs do not have flaws that would impact other vehicles or overall traffic flow if they were to be implemented on a larger scale.   
Test Methodology: Analysis, test, and demonstration.
Expected Benefits:The expected benefit is increased safety.
Deliverables:Name: Final report.
Product Type(s): Research report, Software, Hardware, Data, Other
Description: The deliverable is a final report that describes the development of a testing capability at Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center that can support future research.
