The purpose of this course is to help transportation agencies that are beginning to plan implementation of a connected vehicle (CV) environment. The overall goal of the course is to teach participants how to develop an action plan in collaboration with regional partners to improve readiness for CV deployment. Participants will learn more about the safety, mobility, and applications and will gain an overview of three CV pilot sites in Wyoming, New York City, and Tampa. They will also learn how to identify funding sources for CV projects. Lastly, they will be made aware of recent activities supported by the ITS Joint Program Office and resources available from the CV research program sponsored by the U.S. DOT.
This event is held for ITS Minnesota Members and will be suitable for multiple types of ITS professionals, including ITS Project Managers, Executives / General Managers, General Public, Planners, Transit Professionals, and Transportation Operations / Traffic Engineers.
