August 2012 ITS JPO Newsletter

Last month, Congress passed the latest federal aid highway law (MAP-21), which continues the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) research program at similar funding levels.

In addition, we are excited about the impending launch of the Safety Pilot Model Deployment this August, which will be the largest test to date of connected vehicle technology in a real-world, multimodal operating environment. This newsletter highlights this launch as well as several other initiatives, such as the preliminary results of the Safety Pilot Driver Clinics, the upgraded Connected Vehicle Test Bed, and the Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) initiative, among others.
