USDOT Spotlights MCDOT High-Tech Traffic Management Research

Anthem, AZ — Daisy Mountain Drive is known amongst locals for its scenic desert views and vibrant neighborhood businesses. But, it is also home to a state-of-the-art field lab for testing new transportation technology systems for vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-roadway communication systems. Maricopa County Department of Transportation’s (MCDOT) SMARTDrive Test Bed was selected to be part of the United States Domestic Scan Program’s visit to Arizona to study advances in Integrated Corridor Management.

The U.S. Domestic Scan Team is an elite group of professional transportation leaders from across the country pulled together by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) to facilitate information sharing about the latest in innovations in traffic management technologies and research.

 

New Website Helps Local Communities Prepare for Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program /CV Pilots Deployment Project

The U.S. Department of Transportation has announced plans for several regional connected vehicle pilot projects in different parts of the U.S., and a new website has been established to help educate interested stakeholders about this potential opportunity. The USDOT plans to release a request for proposals for the pilot program in early 2015. These pilots will serve as initial implementations of connected vehicle technology deployed in real-world settings with the aim of delivering near-term safety, mobility, and environmental benefits to the public. Details about the program can be found at http://www.its.dot.gov/pilots.

The new website includes the following: the latest news about the Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program; a downloadable fact sheet; examples of how local communities can participate in the pilot program; a list of proposed applications; a high-level roadmap outlining how the program will be rolled out; and a proposed program schedule. Visit USDOT ITS Joint Program Office for more information.
