|We want to continue
with implementation of connected vehicles. This is a timeline of the
program’s intended path toward deployment.
As promised, we have tested the technology in real-world settings and
evaluated its effectiveness by collecting and analyzing the data from our testbeds
over the past few years. NHTSA recently made an agency decision to move
forward with the connected vehicle technology for light vehicles. NHTSA will
make a decision about heavy vehicles soon.
|We anticipate the
continuation of our testing and certification efforts in the coming months
and years, and are expecting our modal partner, FHWA, to issue deployment
guidelines in the year ahead to assist the state and local jurisdictions in
moving this technology towards widespread deployment.
