|In this presentation
we will be provide a high level overview of the ITS Joint Program office and
the various research programs we have undertaken past, present and future.
We will have an emphasis on the connected vehicle research during the
presentation. You may hear others refer to this technology as
Vehicle-to-Vehicle technology, but as you can see by this agenda Connected
Vehicle research is more just preventing car crashes. We have a much broader
perspective in mind that not just addresses road safety issues but also those
of mobility and environmental issues.
|We know that
wireless technology can be used to improve they way people travel by giving
them more information and more options. Anonymous collected from cars,
trucks, buses and even pedestrian cell phones can be combined to create
applications that make travel easier and hassle-free. The data also gives
people the option make greener travel decisions and avoid hazardous road
weather issues like Icy roads.
|I will also talk
about the underlying technology that makes Connected Vehicles happens, the
testing we are doing to ensure the technology is safe and secure and the
policy issues that need to be addressed.
