October 2017

[This slide contains a blurred photograph of a road and a building overlaid with small interconnected transportation mode icons which signify vehicle-to-vehicle communications.]

Slide 2: Strategic Plan Program Categories

[This slide contains a photograph of the ITS 2015-2019 Strategic Plan and a diagram of the Program Categories arranged as a building with columns. The two bottom “foundation” layers are Interoperability and Enterprise Data. The three “support columns” are Connected Vehicles, Automation, and Emerging Capabilities. The triangular “roof” of the building is Accelerating Deployment.]

Slide 3: Imagine a Transportation System in Which Vehicles Can Sense & Communicate Things That You Can’t.

[This slide has an illustration of a futuristic car with its headlights on and various interconnected roadway feature icons surrounding it, connected to it via lines, which represent electronic communications between the car and the other elements.]

Slide 4: Accelerating Deployment Via the Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program

  • Spur Early CV Tech Deployment
    • Wirelessly Connected Vehicles
    • Mobile Devices
    • Infrastructure
  • Measure Deployment Benefits
    • Safety
    • Mobility
    • Environment
  • Resolve Deployment Issues
    • Technical
    • Institutional
    • Financial

[This slide contains a sequential diagram of illustrations that represent Accelerating Deployment of Connected Vehicles and the various sub-categories. These are listed above. There is also another sequential diagram of three arrow-shaped boxes for the Three Phases of Deployment (Phase 1: Concept Development (up to 12 months), Phase 2: Design/Build/Test (up to 20 months), and Phase 3: Maintain/Operate Pilot (minimum 18 months)) that flow to Routine Operations: Post-Pilot Operations (ongoing).]

Slide 5: The Three Connected Vehicle Pilot Sites


  • Reduce the number and severity of adverse weather-related incidents in the I-80 Corridor in order to improve safety and reduce incident-related delays.
  • Focused on the needs of commercial vehicle operators in the State of Wyoming.

New York City DOT

  • Improve safety and mobility of travelers in New York City through connected vehicle technologies.
  • Vehicle to vehicle (V2V) technology installed in up to 8,000 vehicles in Midtown Manhattan, and vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) technology installed along high-accident rate arterials in Manhattan and Central Brooklyn.

Tampa (THEA) Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority

  • Alleviate congestion and improve safety during morning commuting hours.
  • Deploy a variety of connected vehicle technologies on and in the vicinity of reversible express lanes and three major arterials in downtown Tampa to solve the transportation challenges.

[This slide contains a collage of photos of a semi-trailer, traffic in an intersection, and city buildings.]

Slide 6: Emerging Technology – Smart Cities

Emerging Technologies

  • Connected Vehicles
  • Vehicle Automation
  • Internet of Things
  • Machine Learning
  • Big Data
  • Sharing Economy


  • Order of magnitude safety improvements
  • Reduced congestion
  • Reduced emissions and use of fossil fuels
  • Improved access to jobs and services
  • Reduced transportation costs for gov’t and users
  • Improved accessibility and mobility

[This slide contains a flow chart: a list of emerging technologies (recreated above) flow into Connected-Automated Vehicles and Smart Cities (represented by graphics of traffic, intersections, and cityscapes) flow into a list of Benefits (detailed above.]


[This slide has a background of a black and white photo of city buildings at night overlaid with interconnecting lines.]

Slide 8: FY17 - ATCMTD Grants

[This slide contains a screenshot of a table of ten ATCMTD Grants for FY17.]

Slide 9: Thousands of New Connected Vehicles Will Hit U.S. Streets Next Year

[This slide contains a United States map with locations marked to show U.S. DOT Funded and Non-DOT Funded Connected Vehicle projects.]

Slide 10: Questions?

[This slide contains a black and white photo of a group of raised hands holding various types of paper text bubbles.]
