Public Availability of Connected Vehicle Documents

On September 1, 2016, the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Connected Vehicle (CV) Pilot Deployment Program awarded cooperative agreements collectively worth more than $45 million to design, build, and operate CV deployments at three sites: Wyoming, New York City (NYC), and Tampa. The program will deploy, test, and operationalize cutting-edge mobile and roadside technologies and enable multiple CV applications developed by the USDOT Dynamic Mobility Application program.

The program is designed to have three phases: (1) Concept Development, (2) Design/Deploy/Test, and (3) Maintain/Operate.  Within each phase, each site is required to submit a sequence of documents, leading to a progress gate at the end of the phase.  Delivered draft documents are reviewed by the USDOT team and revised until they are accepted.  Final versions of all documents are posted on the National Transportation Library (NTL), established to provide national and international access to transportation information and to coordinate information creation and dissemination. When visitors to the CV Pilot website click on a document, it is accessed from the NTL facility.

Phase 1 of the program has been completed, and all final documents submitted by the three sites are available from the NTL.  With only one exception, all Phase 1 documents are available for each site, as well as guidance documents from USDOT with advice and a template for structuring the document. Table 1 displays the documents listed on the CV Pilot website that are available from NTL, and how many times each has been viewed as of June 2017.   “Number of Hits” means the number of times that someone has clicked on the file name from the CV Pilot website; it does not mean how many times the document has been downloaded.

* This publication will be available in Phase 2.

The most obvious fact the chart makes apparent is that the most popular document for each of the three sites is the Concept of Operations.  One explanation for this may be that the ConOps documents have been available for longer than the others, but another explanation may be that they provide the easiest insight into what the three sites plan to do.  For Tampa and Wyoming, the next most popular documents were the Security Management and Safety documents, although this was not the case for NYCDOT.

Almost all documents have been accessed more than 200 times, indicating that this set of materials is of high value, and important to the CV community.

Additional CV Pilot documents on the NTL are:

  1. USDOT guidance summary for deployments: institutional and business models and financial sustainability
  2. USDOT guidance summary for deployments: data sharing
  3. Summary of responses to the pilot deployment program’s request for information (RFI)
  4. Pilot Deployment Program Phase 1
