The following firms passed the U.S. DOTís acceptance criteria for placement on the research qualified products list (rQPL)
- Arada Systems
- Cohda Wireless/Cisco Systems
- Kapsch TrafficCom, Inc.
- Savari Networks
- Industrial Technology Research Institute.
Product testing for the RSEs was conducted from February 20 through March 2, 2012. In addition to other factors such as cost and timing, devices were evaluated based on the following standards.
The selection of firms is still ongoing, and others will likely be added to the list. Only those firms listed on the rQPL will be considered as suppliers for the model deployment.
The model deployment will test connected vehicle technology in a real-world, multimodal operating environment over the course of a year. The data will ultimately help the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration make a decision in 2013 on the future of the technology.
