The connected vehicle research being sponosred by U.S. Dot's moving from research to reality. The connected vehicle concept leverages the potentially transormative capabilities of wireless technology to make surface transportation safer,smarter and greener. Connected vehicles will ultimately enhance the mobility and quality of life of all Americans, while helping to reduce the environmental impace of surface transportation. As we move towards implementation, we are developing a better understanding of how the connected vehicle infrastructure will be deployed and operated. A numberof states have gained valuable experience in what it means to deploy a connected vehicle application(s) in the field through their participaton in the ITS test beds. The USDOT’s Research and Innovation Technology Administration (RITA)is offering Connected Vehicle 101 workshops at ITSA State Chapter meetings across the country through its Professional Capacity Building Program (PCB). Participants will learn about the safety, mobility and environmental applications envisioned for the connected vehicle environment. They will gain an overview of the infrastructure requirements being developed, including communication standards, and operatons and maintenance implications, and upcoming policy decisions. The workshop will include a report on the ITS test beds and model deployment in Ann Arbor, MI and solicit feedback from the participants about their decision factors and needs concerning the future connected vehicle environment.
