|The USDOT seeks bold
and innovative ideas for proposed demonstrations to effectively test,
evaluate, and demonstrate the significant benefits of smart city concepts.
|Ideally, the winning
city will view ITS, connected vehicles, and automated vehicles as the next
logical step in its existing, robust transportation infrastructure. It should
also aim to have critical systems in vehicles and infrastructure that
communicate with each other, allow for active citizen participation, and
integrate new concepts that leverage the sharing economy.
