The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) today announced the formation of the Connected Vehicle Infrastructure Technical (CVIT) Committee to develop a harmonized technical specification for roadside connected vehicle (CV) devices.
The Standards, to be completed by the end of 2019, are for traffic signals, school zone beacons, pedestrian crossings, and other electronic devices that control the movement of vehicles and pedestrians on the nation’s roadways. The ability to transmit safety messages, alerts and warnings from the infrastructure to vehicles and vice versa, is a critical function of CV technology.
For more details, see the full press release.
