The National Operations Center of Excellence will be hosting a five part webinar series covering the SPaT Challenge, including design considerations and deployment.
The American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO), the Institute of Traffic Engineers (ITE), and ITS America (ITSA) working together through the Vehicle to Infrastructure Deployment Coalition (V2I DC) have challenged state and local public sector transportation infrastructure owners and operators (IOOs) to work together to achieve deployment of roadside Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) 5.9 GHz broadcast radio infrastructure to broadcast signal phase and timing (SPaT) in real-time at signalized intersections on at least one road corridor or street network (approximately 20 signalized intersections) in each of the 50 states by January 2020. This is commonly called the SPaT Challenge.
Webinar #1: Initial SPaT Challenge Activities | March 6, 2018 2:00pm – 3:30pm ET
This webinar will serve as an introduction to the workshop series and logistics, available and upcoming SPaT Challenge resources, and the SPaT Challenge model ConOps & Requirements documents. The webinar will also present information regarding costs, procurement, and corridor selection. More Information and Registration
Webinar #2: SPaT Challenge Design Considerations (Part 1) | March 20, 2018 2:00pm – 3:30pm ET
This webinar will present on minimum content for SPaT broadcasts to be verified/validated and signal controller interface/creation of SPaT messages, and DSRC licensing. The webinar will also present examples of designs for assembling SPaT messages. More information and Registration
Webinar #3: SPaT Challenge Design Considerations (Part 2) | April 17, 2018 2:00pm – 3:30pm ET
This webinar will present an overview of MAP messages, examples of MAP message creation approaches, vehicle position correction (needs and solutions) as well as an overview of vehicle position correction (needs and solutions). More Information and Registration
Webinar #4: SPaT Challenge Design Considerations (Part 3) | May 15, 2018 2:00pm – 3:00pm ET
This webinar will present an overview of intersection and roadside equipment specification, design and installation. This webinar will also discuss backhaul infrastructure design. More Information and Registration
Webinar #5: SPaT Challenge Deployment & Validation | June 12, 2018 2:00pm – 3:00pm ET
