Using Connected Vehicle Technologies to Solve Real-World Operational Problems

Connected vehicles are poised to transform our streets, communities, and personal lives. But before these technologies can be deployed broadly, there are a number of technical, institutional, and financial challenges — challenges that can only be understood and overcome by putting these emerging technologies to work in real-world situations, solving real problems. The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) is supporting the advancement of connected vehicle technology with a pilot deployment program that is uncovering what barriers remain and how to address them, documenting lessons learned, and serving as a template assisting other early CV technology deployments.


The USDOT has awarded cooperative agreements collectively worth more than $45 million to three pilot sites in New York City; Wyoming; and Tampa to implement a suite of connected vehicle applications and technologies tailored to meet their region’s unique transportation needs. These pilot sites are helping connected vehicles make the final leap into real-world deployment so that they can deliver on their promises to increase safety, improve personal mobility, enhance economic productivity, reduce environmental impacts and transform public agency operations. Moreover, these sites are laying the groundwork for even more dramatic transformations as other areas follow in their footsteps. Program resources targeting the early deployer community include technical documentation, webinars, and documented success stories.


As a first step, each site spent 12 months preparing a comprehensive deployment concept to ensure rapid and efficient connected vehicle capability roll-out. The sites are now completing a 24 month phase to design, build, and test these deployments of integrated wireless in-vehicle, mobile device, and roadside technologies. As of Fall 2018, the sites are entering into the third phase of the deployment where the tested connected vehicle systems will be operational for a minimum 18-month period and system impact will be monitored on a set of key performance measures.

Please explore this site for a more detailed description of CV Pilots objectives, phases, and research progress. We will continue to upload relevant program information for public consumption as it becomes available. For inquiries regarding the individual pilots, please contact the respective Point of Contacts: NYCDOT pilot – Wesam Daraghmeh, WDaraghmeh@dot.nyc.gov and Mohamad Talas,Mtalas@dot.nyc.gov; Tampa (THEA) pilot – Steve Novosad, snovosad@hntb.com; WYDOT pilot – dot-cvpilot@wyo.gov.

Intelligent Transportation Systems – Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) Deployment Guidance and Resources

Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) Resources

Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) is the next generation of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). V2I technologies capture vehicle-generated traffic data, wirelessly providing information such as advisories from the infrastructure to the vehicle that inform the driver of safety, mobility, or environment-related conditions. State and local agencies are likely to install V2I infrastructure alongside or integrated with existing ITS equipment. Because of this, the majority of V2I deployments may qualify for similar federal-aid programs as ITS deployments, if the deploying agency meets certain eligibility requirements.

This page lists a broad range of resources that help planners, transportation engineers, decision-makers, and other involved in the ITS deployment process with valuable information about V2I technologies.

For Transportation Planners

Vehicle-To-Infrastructure (V2i) Message Lexicon – To help with Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) deployments, a V2I Message Lexicon was developed that explains the relationships and concepts for V2I messages and identifies the ITS standards where they may be found. This lexicon document provides a brief history and background for connected vehicle (CV) and infrastructure-focused standards that relate to CV V2I applications, and explain the construction of V2I messages using current communications standards. Additional information is provided to help understand concepts and activities that are related to V2I messages and briefly review recent and forthcoming standards that support CV applications.

The FHWA Fact Sheet, Environmental Justice Consideration for Connected and Automated Vehicles provides information on the benefits and challenges associated with the deployment of connected and automated vehicles and considerations to help address potential negative impacts on EJ populations. The Fact Sheet describes differences between connected vehicles and automated vehicles, highlights deployment scenarios and implications for environmental justice populations, and provides Federal resources to address the issue.

Connected Vehicle Impacts on Transportation Planning Primer – This report summarizes the results of the findings and recommendations of the study and provides planners with a primer on how to begin to address the impacts of connected and automated vehicle technology in their work. The first section includes a summary description of the technologies and potential impacts. The following section includes a summary of potential impacts on planning goals, objectives, products, tools, and data. Impacts are identified as short-term (0 to 5 years), medium-term (5 to 20 years), or long-term (over 20 years). Impacts are then further examined in a series of case studies designed to help planners incorporate these technologies into their planning products.
