Connected Vehicle Applications and Supporting Documentation

Mobility - EnableATIS

Application Description

  • EnableATIS (Advanced Traveler Information System 2.0)
    • Enhanced traveler information services that record or infer user decisions and other contextual trip data that, when suitably processed can improve or transform system management functions

Supporting Documentation

Mobility - MMITSS

Application Description

  • Intelligent Traffic Signal System (I-SIG)
    • An overarching system optimization application accommodating signal priority, preemption and pedestrian movements
  • Transit Signal Priority (TSP) and Freight Signal Priority (FSP)
    • Two applications that provide signal priority to transit at intersections and along arterial corridors as well as signal priority to freight vehicles along an arterial corridor near a freight facility
  • Mobile Accessible Pedestrian Signal System (PED-SIG)
    • An application that allows for an automated call from the smart phone of a visually impaired pedestrian to the traffic signal, as well as audio cues to safely navigate the crosswalk
  • Emergency Vehicle Preemption (PREEMPT)
    • An application that provides signal preemption to emergency vehicles, and accommodates multiple emergency requests

Mobility - INFLO

Application Description

  • Dynamic Speed Harmonization (SPD-HARM)
    • An application that aims to recommend target speeds in response to congestion, incidents, and road conditions to maximize throughput and reduce crashes
  • Queue Warning (Q-WARN)
    • An application that aims to provide drivers timely warnings of existing and impending queues
  • Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC)
    • An application that aims to dynamically adjust and coordinate cruise control speeds among platooning vehicles to improve traffic flow stability and increase throughput

Supporting Documentation

Mobility - R.E.S.C.U.M.E.

Application Description

  • Incident Scene Pre-Arrival Staging Guidance for Emergency Responders (RESP-STG)
    • An application that provides input to responder vehicle routing, staging and secondary dispatch decisions
  • Incident Scene Work Zone Alerts for Drivers and Workers (INC-ZONE)
    • An application that warns on-scene workers of vehicles with trajectories or speeds that pose a high risk to their safety. It also warns drivers passing an incident zone if they need to slow down, stop, or change lanes.
  • Emergency Communications and Evacuation (EVAC)
    • An application that addresses needs of evacuees with and without special needs or their own transportation

Supporting Documentation

Mobility - IDTO

Application Description

  • Connection Protection (T-CONNECT)
    • An application that enables coordination among public transportation providers and travelers to improve the probability of successful transit transfers
  • Dynamic Transit Operations (T-DISP)
    • An application that links available transportation service resources with travelers through dynamic transit vehicle scheduling, dispatching and routing capabilities
  • Dynamic Ridesharing (D-RIDE)
    • An application that uses dynamic ridesharing technology, personal mobile devices, and voice activated on-board equipment to match riders and drivers

Supporting Documentation

Mobility - FRATIS

Application Description

  • Freight-Specific Dynamic Travel Planning and Performance
    • An application that enhances traveler information systems to address specific freight needs. Provides information such as wait times at ports, road closures, work zones, and route restrictions.
  • Drayage Optimization (DR-OPT)
    • An application that optimizes truck/load movements between freight facilities, balancing early and late arrivals
