  8. Vision and Mission VISION Transform the Way Society Moves MISSION Conduct research, development, and education activities to facilitate the adoption of information and communication technology to enable society to move more safely and efficiently. 7

  9. Innovation Through Connectivity: Connected Vehicles Connected vehicles are the future of transportation: Connected vehicles can save lives by significantly • reducing traffic accidents Connected vehicles can make travel easier, more • efficient, and more enjoyable Connected vehicles can help curb pollution • Connected vehicles include all modes of transportation • as well as pedestrians Connected vehicle research is a partnership between • the USDOT, the auto industry, and other public and private researchers Connected vehicles are not a threat to your privacy • 8

  11. Safety Benefits of Connected Vehicles NHTSA studied the safety benefits of two V2V applications: Intersection Movement Assist (IMA) and • Left Turn Assist (LTA). IMA : Warns the LTA: Notifies a driver when it is driver who is not safe to enter attempting to an make a left turn intersection— with oncoming for example, traffic that it is not when something safe to proceed is blocking the driver’s view of opposing or crossing traffic NHTSA estimates that IMA and LTA would potentially prevent up to 592,000 crashes and save up to • 1,083 lives annually. 10

  12. Innovation Through Automation: Automated Vehicles The path toward connected vehicles will ultimately lead to automated vehicles. 11

  13. Automation In Transportation Full automation has the potential to • revolutionize the transportation system but requires careful study Partial automation will likely provide • significant transportation system benefits Connectivity is critical to safe and efficient • operations 12

  14. Community Responses to Connected Vehicles • “The focus for connected vehicles should be in making a dramatic improvement in road safety…by the application of systems engineering to the four contributing domains: – road design and traffic control systems; – vehicle design and networking; – information and communications technology applied to road traffic safety; and – human systems integration optimization.

  15. Deployment is Coming • V2V auto industry deployments moving forward • NHTSA announcement about regulatory proposal that would require V2V in new vehicles • V2I prototype deployment testing nearing completion • Ongoing supporting research such as AASHTO Footprint Analysis and Pooled Fund Studies Source: 14

  16. How Do You Prepare? • Infrastructure will be deployed and operated by State and local DOT’s – Not a “shall” – Use of V2I is not mandated – But, you need to know about planning, funding, deployment, etc. • What investments could be made to leverage a nationwide fleet of equipped vehicles in support of state and local policy and operational objectives?

  18. Topics Covered in the Draft Guidance Planning Use on public sector fleets • • Federal-aid Eligibility Procurement processes • • V2I Deployments and NEPA Legacy systems/devices • • Interoperability Communication technology • • Evaluation DSRC Service Licensing • • ITS Equipment Capability and Data Connection and Latency • • Compatibility Connected Vehicle Privacy • Hardware/Software Certification Principles • Reliability Connected Vehicle Security • • Use of Right of Way Data Access • • Allowance of Private Sector Use Manual on Uniform Traffic • • Control Devices Design consideration for facilities • Using Public-Private Partnerships Use of existing infrastructure • • Source: 17

  19. Connected Vehicle: Applications Connected vehicles will generate robust data about how, when, and • where our vehicles travel—information that could be used to develop new and innovative apps, leading to less congested and safer roads. 18
