USDOT Connected Vehicles Pilot Deployment Program Technical Assistance Webinar Series

The Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program seeks to combine connected vehicle and mobile device technologies in innovative and cost-effective ways. Ultimately, this program will improve traveler mobility and system productivity while reducing environmental impacts and enhancing safety. The USDOT has selected three pilot sites, where teams are in the process of conducting Phase 1 Concept Development activities in order to move towards deployment and operations phases. A series of USDOT-sponsored technical assistance webinars has been developed to assist not only the three selected sites, but also other early deployers. Below are the first three webinars, to be held in December 2015. Stay tuned for more upcoming technical assistance webinars by visiting the program’s website at: http://www.its.dot.gov/pilots.

Preparing a Safety Management Plan for Connected Vehicle Deployments

Date: December 7, 2015
Time: 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm EST
Presenter: John Harding, Intelligent Technologies Research, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)
Webinar Details:
This webinar will present the USDOT perspective on the development of a Safety Management Plan, a key step in the concept development phase for deployment planning. John Harding of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will describe the design concept and the requirements of a Safety Management Plan, which will address the underlying safety needs associated with the safety of all travelers, subjects, and other personnel associated with connected vehicle deployments. Note that Safety Management planning is critical, yet different from Safety Evaluation. The purpose of Safety Evaluation is to evaluate safety impacts/benefits, while the purpose of the Safety Management Plan is to define approaches/processes for the identification and management/ minimization of the inherent safety risks associated with connected vehicle deployments.

Preparing a Security Operational Concept for Connected Vehicle Deployments

Date: December 9, 2015
Time: 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm EST
Presenter: Kevin Gay, Program Manager, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)
Webinar Details:
This webinar will present the USDOT perspective on the development of a Security Operational Concept, a key step in the concept development phase for deployment planning. Kevin Gay of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will describe the design concept and the requirements of a Security Operational Concept, which will address the underlying needs of the connected vehicle deployments to ensure secure operations and to protect the privacy of vehicle and device owners.  A key component of the Security Operational Concept will be the Security Credential and Management System (SCMS).

Preparing an Institutional/Business Model and Financial Sustainability for Connected Vehicle Deployments

Date: December 10, 2015
Time: 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm EST
Presenter: Brian Cronin, Team Lead of Research and Demonstration, ITS Joint Program Office
Webinar Details:
This webinar will present the USDOT perspective on the development of a Partnership Coordination and Finalization Plan, a key step in the concept development phase for deployment planning. Brian Cronin of the ITS Joint Program Office will describe the concept and the requirements of a Partnership Coordination and Finalization Plan to ensure that partnership coordination and finalization occur properly.  The existing, desired, and implemented institutional framework and business approaches need to be addressed along with the technical tasks, the performance evaluation, and ways to achieve financial sustainability.
