This slide depicts the goals of the program.
Blue goals- early goals- to spur CV tech
deployment not just through wirelessly connected vehicles but also through other
elements that are major players in this connected environment, i.e., mobile devices,
infrastructure, TMC, etc. Data can be integrated from these multiple sources to help
make key decisions.
Green goals shows the benefits-the reasoning
behind why we are kick starting this program- to target improving safety and
mobility and environmental impacts and commit to measuring those benefits. Measurement
of the impacts and benefits are not just through an isolated test bed or a
computer-based simulation testbed. This
real world deployment. Differentiating and finding these benefits and
identifying what can be attributed to these CV applications and technologies is
an important component of the activity.
Red goals show the resolution of issues of
various deployments. People often first jump to technical areas and focus on getting
applications to work together- but that is only 1/3 of the issues. Institutional
arrangements must be put in place to get the technology installed as well as to
manage and govern the sharing of information. Also, financial arrangements must be
made that may integrate the technologies into a financially sustainable model that
can live on after the funding from the initial pilots.
