USDOT’s Connected Vehicle Pilot Program starts Phase Two

USDOT has awarded three cooperative agreements, collectively worth more than US$45m to initiate the design/build/test phase of the CV Pilot Deployment Program at the test sites in southern Wyoming, New York City, and Tampa. Managed by the USDOT’s Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (ITS-JPO), the program is a national effort to deploy, test, and operationalize cutting-edge mobile and roadside technologies and enable multiple connected vehicle applications. These technologies and applications have been brought together in innovative ways to have an immediate impact – to save lives, improve personal mobility, enhance economic productivity, reduce environmental impacts, and transform public agency operations.
