Program Title: CICAS

JPO Program Manager: Schagrin

Current Updates (as of 2/8/08):

Program is currently underway with prime objectives being accomplished.

Program Description Summary

The CICAS Initiative is designed to employ a combination of vehicle-based technologies and systems, infrastructure-based technologies and systems, and communications systems focused on detecting and avoiding potential crossing-path crashes at intersections. CICAS will combine these technologies, thereby creating three innovative applications: an application that warns drivers of potential signal or stop sign violations, an application that assists the driver’s decision making capability when proceeding onto a high speed road after making a legal stop at a stop sign, and an application that assist the driver’s decision making capability when turning left in the face of oncoming traffic. The major focus of this initiative is to determine if these systems are effective at reducing crossing path crashes while achieving a sufficient level of driver acceptance.

Program Goals

  • Signal and stop sign violation field operational test.
  • Prototype system developed for stop sign assist.
  • Prototype system developed for signalized left turn assist.
  • Safety benefits assessments.

JPO Leads – Linda Dodge ( Seattle and Minnesota)
JPO Leads – Yehuda Gross ( San Diego)

Current Updates (as of 02/01/08):

Currently working to obligate ITS funds. Except for San Diego, obligations are conditional on sites receiving legal authority to price. Evaluation contractor recommendation provided to contracts on 01/25/08.

Program Description Summary

In May 2006, the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) announced its National Strategy to Reduce Congestion on America’s Transportation Network (the Congestion Initiative), a bold and comprehensive national program to reduce congestion on the Nation’s roads, rails, runways and waterways. The Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Operational Testing to Mitigate Congestion (ITS-OTMC) Program provides the advanced technology foundation for the Congestion Initiative. ITS technologies will support congestion pricing, improved system operations and performance, regional efforts to expand provision of real-time traveler information, improved traffic incident response, improved arterial signal timing and reduced obtrusiveness of highway construction work zones. The overall objective of the ITS-OTMC Program is to facilitate the operational testing and evaluation of innovative and aggressive congestion reduction strategies incorporating ITS technologies that can demonstrate measurable reductions in congestion levels in the deployment areas.

Program Goals

  • Demonstrate impact on congestion through the implementation of tolling, transit, technology and telecommuting strategies (The 4 T’s).
  • Demonstrate impact of technology to enable variable pricing.
  • Evaluate the urban partner demonstrations.
  • Develop outreach materials to educate the industry on the benefits of the 4 T’s.

Issues

  • Schedule reflects nine months for selection process and 6 months for initial award of funds.
  • $8.6 million obligated in 2007 to San Francisco, although they are not allowed to spend until legislative authority is obtained in March 31, 2008.
  • Legislative authority for New York must be by March 31, 2008.
  • Legislative authority for Seattle is anticipated to be by the end of March 2008. Per the signed term sheet, Seattle is not allowed to drawdown funds until the system is implemented, which is September 30, 2009. Seattle is scheduled to receive $47 million of ITS funds. This will significantly impact reporting on the expenditures to date.
  • San Diego is receiving $3 million to support an innovative guided bus application. FTA has the lead in negotiating the overall program. (They have $15 million in the project.) We anticipate a May award.
  • The evaluation contract is about to be awarded. Miami is not receiving ITS funds, and is doing a self-evaluation. JPO staff are providing guidance to Miami on their evaluation. Miami’s project is expected to be in operation for the first phase during the summer of 2008.
  • See attached file for more specific funding profile and status of the ITS funds.

JPO Program Manager: Kate Hartman

 

 

 

Current Updates (as of 02/11/08):

SAIC continued to fully implement its evaluation data collection and analysis activities. This included significant follow-up interviews and data requests from the project partners, including the Hong Kong participants. SAIC provided an Interim Evaluation Update at the Intermodal Freight Technology Working Group Meeting in Atlanta, Georgia. SAIC has been having regular telecons to discuss progress.

Program Description Summary

The Electronic Freight Manifest (EFM) initiative combines the successful elements of the air cargo tests and the IFTWG’s Freight Information Highway Test and is designed to enhance freight transportation productivity through the intelligent application of technology enhancements. The EFM deployment project is composed of three distinct phases - Design and Development, Deployment, and Operations. The evaluation effort is expected to mirror these phases. During the Design and Development Phase of the underlying EFM deployment, the evaluation contractor similarly designed and developed the evaluation framework. It included the design of the overall evaluation strategy, analysis of preliminary data, and

Program Goals

The deployment of the EFM will result in:

  • A more efficient supply chain
  • Improved logistics performance and visibility
  • A more secure supply chain
  • More efficient regulatory and trade compliance.

% Program Budget Expended:

26% (as of 01/01/08)

Issues

  • Funding reallocation in Spring 2007 resulted in extending the funding profile into FY 2010. Overall budget was reduced. We do not expect significant additional schedule slippage.
  • There was a significant schedule slippage to allow the contracting process for the Pioneer Sites to be completed. We are taking steps to streamline this approach for future stages. Since November 2007, the start of the Pioneer Site work, we are three months behind schedule.
  • We intentionally let the schedule slip approximately three months in 2008 to allow the Pioneer Sites to improve the quality of their concepts of operations and requirements documents. We anticipate working on the demonstration phase partly in parallel with the AMS phase to pick up on the schedule slippage.
  • Due to budget reallocation, we have reduced the number of sites to model from up to 4 to up to 3. We also anticipate that the demonstration phase will be up to 3 (probably 2) instead of up to 4 sites.
  • Modeling phase schedule also slipped three months, but it was not in the critical path.

Program Title: Integrated Vehicle-Based Safety Systems (IVBSS)

JPO Program Manager: Steve Sill
NHTSA Technical Manager: Jack Ference

Current Updates (as of 02/01/08):

This report reflects verbal direction given by the RITA administrator at the December 21, 2007 Phase II Go-No/Go milestone decision meeting. The direction was to extend Phase I to demonstrate that the prototype light vehicle and heavy truck IVBSS fully meet project performance requirements. $361K in additional funding for the Phase I extension to be provided using JPO contingency funds.

Program Description Summary

The purpose of this program is to develop and field test an integrated, vehicle-based safety system addressing rear-end, lane change and road departure crashes for light vehicles and heavy commercial trucks.

Program Goals

  • Develop an integrated, vehicle-based safety system and verify that the system meets performance requirements and is ready for use by volunteer drivers and truck fleets in an extended field test.
  • Conduct a field test to determine system effectiveness, potential safety benefits, and user acceptance of the prototype integrated systems.
  • Share key documents (functional requirements, performance guidelines, test procedures) and research findings (human factors and drive-vehicle interface experimental results and field test results) with the automotive and heavy truck industry.

Issues

  • Request for formal approval of Phase I extension directed by RITA Administrator approved after substantial delay. Light vehicle team members (UMTRI, Visteon and Cognex) are currently operating at-risk by their own choice (~$261K effort) since January 1. Contracting efforts to provide additional funding as approved by RITA Administrator on 01/28/08 may delay program further.
  • Request for Citizant FY08 funding has not been approved. Contractor operating at risk since October 2007. Further delay in funding obligation will jeopardize project execution.
  • Execution of IVBSS Annual Public Meeting (April 10-11, 2008) is threatened due to delay in renegotiation and award of ITSA 2008 contract and RITA Administrator approval of and award of required funding. ITSA and Citizant are key organizations supporting this outreach effort.

Program Title: Mobility Services for All Americans (MSAA)

Issues

  • All program goals and major objectives remain intact and will be achieved.
  • The initiative experiences 12 months delay from original schedule due to:
    • 3 months, expansion of foundation research scope to accommodate more listening sessions and focus groups, and to develop generic ConOps.
    • 4 months, discussion/negotiation with UWR for joint demonstration (including time to make UWR funds available).
    • 5 months, FTA internal process to approve/process cooperative agreements.
  • The 12-month delay has been reduced to 9 months by shortening the period of performance for Phase 1 demonstration from 18 months to 15 months.
  • However, similar administrative oversight requirements and approval process (i.e., further delays) are possible for Phase 2 sites selection and announcement.

Program Description Summary

The VII Initiative is a cooperative effort between USDOT, State governments, and the automobile industry. The initiative will develop and test an information infrastructure that uses advanced communications technologies to exchange real-time information between the roadside and vehicles and between vehicles to improve safety and mobility. Applications are being developed to test multiple safety and mobility uses of VII. VII seeks to achieve significant reductions in vehicle crashes through safety applications and vehicle delay through State and local management of the surface transportation network enhanced by real-time traffic information and improved transportation systems operation. VII seeks to determine the technical feasibility, economic viability, and social acceptability of a coordinated, nationwide communications system deployed on the road infrastructure, and installed in all vehicles sold in the US.

Program Goals

  • Establish developmental test environments in Detroit and California.
  • Generate technical data to support deployment decision making process.
  • Develop a policy framework to establish a viable business model
  • Develop a cost-benefit analysis,
  • Define viable deployment strategies
  • Perform institutional issues analyses to support a deployment decision making process.
  • Perform a privacy and security policy analyses to support deployment decision making process
  • Develop application tools to support public agency needs for real time road network data
  • Monitor technology developments to continually enhance system road network performance

Program Title: VSCA (V2V)

JPO Program Manager: Schagrin

Current Updates (as of 2/8/08):

Project remains on schedule and within budget.

Program Description Summary

The VSCA program is a collaborative effort between the US DOT and a consortium of five automobile manufacturers (DaimlerChrysler, Ford, General Motors, Honda, and Toyota) to explore the use of vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) wireless communication to improve the effectiveness of vehicle collision avoidance systems.

Program Goals

  • The goal of the VSC-A program is to develop and test communications-based vehicle safety systems to determine if dedicated short range communications (DSRC) at 5.9 GHz, in combination with vehicle positioning can improve sensor-based safety systems and/or enable new communications-based safety applications
