Connected Vehicle Applications for Speed Harmonization with Queue Warning Workshop

The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) has announced a two-day public meeting to seek stakeholder input on the Intelligent Network Flow Optimization (INFLO) bundle of applications. This bundle features three high-priority transformative applications that have the potential to maximize roadway throughput, reduce crashes, and reduce fuel consumption through the use of data from wirelessly connected vehicles, traveler communication devices, and smart infrastructure. The USDOT’s Dynamic Mobility Applications (DMA) program identified the three applications—queue warning (Q-WARN), dynamic speed harmonization (SPD-HARM), and cooperative adaptive cruise control (CACC)—as high priority for the Connected Vehicle Research Program.
