USDOT Connected Vehicle Pilot Program
TransCore is developing the Concept of Operations and Deployment Plan of New York’s Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program. By integrating our TransSuite® Traffic Management System technology with an in-vehicle device, NYCDOT expects to further improve traffic flow, reduce accidents, and improve pedestrian safety. Supporting the Mayor’s Vision Zero initiative to eliminate traffic deaths by 2024, the program will equip 10,000 cars, buses, and trucks with devices that pull real-time information on road conditions and transmit it directly into the vehicle. The new in-vehicle applications will notify drivers of speed, impending red lights, approaching pedestrians, adjacent vehicles, and work zones. Drivers of buses and fleet vehicles will also be alerted to potential hazards, including bridge clearances, route restrictions, and curve speed warnings.
