Connected vehicles and infrastructure will lead to an integration of vehicle and road
sensor data together with traffic management plans resulting in more consistent dynamic
traffic information delivered to the drivers. Also, the provision of individual
origin-destination routes may help road operators to predict future traffic situations.
This session explores the current initiatives around Japan, USA and Europe for next
generation traffic management interacting with the in-vehicle navigation systems,
namely the US Integrated Corridor Management (ICM), the Japanese Universal
Traffic Management System and the Traffic Management 2.0 in Europe as well as the
German LENA4ITS project.
FHWA is currently working with states and planning organizations to transition toward and implement a performance based approach to carrying out the Federal Highway Program known as Transportation Performance Management. Transportation Performance Management represents the opportunity to prioritize needs, and align resources for optimizing system performance in a collaborative manner. This transition supports the recent legislation "Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century," also known as MAP-21. This legislation integrates performance into many federal transportation programs and contains several performance elements.
FHWA defines Transportation Performance Management as a strategic approach that uses system information to make investment and policy decisions to achieve national performance goals.
In short, Transportation Performance Management:
Is systematically applied, a regular ongoing process
Provides key information to help decision makers allowing them to understand the consequences of investment decisions across multiple markets
Improving communications between decision makers, stakeholders and the traveling public.
Ensuring targets and measures are developed in cooperative partnerships and based on data and objective information
The Department has successfully used and continues to use a wide variety of incentives and strategies to encourage the adoption and deployment of ITS technologies across the country. As a result, ITS have been successfully deployed in cities and rural areas across the country, as well as by the private sector. The Department seeks to integrate proven ITS technologies into the daily activities of transportation agencies, so that the technology considerations are integrated into normal business processes, from the initial planning process to project development and through the everyday operations and maintenance (O&M) of the transportation system.
The next generation of ITS technologies and applications currently in the research stage include areas such as connected vehicle (CV) technologies and vehicle automation. These technologies have the potential to revolutionize surface transportation systems. The research, development, and implementation of the systems require an unprecedented level of collaboration between the Department and other Federal agencies, state and local agencies, automobile manufacturers and suppliers, and industry. The Department will need to use the full range of incentives previously applied, including demonstration projects, and will consider strategies from other industries in order to facilitate this emerging ITS market and lower the barriers to public agency deployment.
Deployment is more likely to be achieved when a full range of incentives is applied over the course of the ITS Research and Development lifecycle, from planning and demonstration program grants, to Knowledge and Technology Transfer (KTT) activities such as technical assistance, training and guidance. The Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) program is good example of this; the program has accelerated awareness of the ICM concept through a research and demonstration program, outreach and guidance, workshops, training activities, and a recent deployment planning grant program.

These data show that ITS deployment is becoming part of the fabric of transportation systems across the country. State and local decision-makers are considering and implementing ITS applications and technologies as an integral part of their plans to address local and regional transportation problems. Many of the first generation ITS applications have nearly reached their full deployment potential, particularly in large urban areas, including electronic tolling and AVL/CAD systems for transit. Still, additional research and technology transfer work remains to be done by the Department to assist their state and local agency partners with efficient implementation of these systems, and incentives continue to remain an important tool to encourage deployment.
the Model SE documents and most of what we’ve done since in signal systems has been predicated on an objectives and needs based approach to not just technology implementation but a philosophy that aligns design, operations and maintenance to ensue programmatic sustainability.
We can also see the development of the same technology on different facilities, e.g. Dynamic Message Signs
A key place to get information on Operations resources and engage in discussion with other practitioners is the new National Operations Center of Excellence.
The Center consists of an extensive website and a technical services program.  It covers a range of transportation systems management and operations topics that can help you advance your programs and expertise.   
Significant thought and planning went into the development of the Center.
The KTS and its subsequent enhanced version, the EKTS, created through SHRP2, became the web portal for the Center.  Along the way there were periods of outreach and engagement to learn what users needed  in the web portal and user beta testing, followed by further development of the site.

Need for Coalition
•Demonstrations to date have identified many V2I applications and demonstrated benefits
•A number of technical and institutional issues have been identified
•Issues are not specific to any one sector, but rather involve all stakeholders
•Transportation agencies are not yet comfortable & confident with V2I deployments
•Nationwide V2I Deployment & Operations will require long term:
•Between infrastructure owners/operators, OEMs, aftermarket manufacturers, and other industry participants
•Provide leadership on Connected Vehicle (CV) Program deployment efforts
•Establish CV deployment strategies
•Lead and provide support on continued technical research for CV 
•Support CV standards development
•Provide input to and refinement of CV guidance
Five initial TWGs have been established to address specific aspects of V2I deployment. TWGs may be added or modified as the coalition members further define their needs.
The role of the TWGs will be to:
•Discuss issues prioritized by the V2I DC and assigned to the specific TWG;
•Discuss additional issues identified by TWG members;
•Recommend and/or perform actions to reach resolution of as many issues discussed in the TWGs as possible; and
•Exchange information.
•The TWGs will work towards defining actions that are needed to resolve the issues associated with V2I deployment. The TWGs are not expected to solve all issues identified, but rather to work towards defining the specific actions that need to be performed (e.g. additional demonstrations, additional pilot deployments, additional research, etc.) in regard to the issues.
Foundational work – research partnerships (ConOps, SyRS, AMS) – demonstrations – KTT – Planning grants
WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx made a major announcement on the future of vehicles that will make driving safer, cleaner, and more efficient. At the New York City Joint Management Traffic Center, the Secretary revealed that New York City, Wyoming, and Tampa, FL will receive up to $42 million to pilot next-generation technology in infrastructure and in vehicles to share and communicate anonymous information with each other and their surroundings in real time, reducing congestion and greenhouse gas emissions, and cutting the unimpaired vehicle crash rate by 80 percent. As part of the Department of Transportation (USDOT) national Connected Vehicle Pilot deployment program, the locations were selected in a competitive process to go beyond traditional vehicle technologies to help drivers better use the roadways to get to work and appointments, relieve the stress caused by bottlenecks, and communicate with pedestrians on cell phones of approaching vehicles. “Today’s announcement is a big step forward for the future of how we move in this country, from our rural communities to our biggest cities,” said Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. “It has been a core mission of the Department to support promising new technologies, and through these types of smart investments we are opening the door to a safer and cleaner network and expanding how future generations travel.” - See more at: http://www.its.dot.gov/press/2015/ngv_tech_announcement.htm#sthash.3MIVJdHj.dpuf
New York City will install Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) technology in 10,000 city-owned vehicles; including cars, buses, and limousines, that frequently travel in Midtown Manhattan, as well as Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) technology throughout Midtown. This includes upgrading traffic signals with V2I technology along avenues between 14th Street and 66th Street in Manhattan and throughout Brooklyn. Additionally, roadside units will be equipped with connected vehicle technology along the FDR Drive between 50th Street and 90th Street.  - See more at: http://www.its.dot.gov/press/2015/ngv_tech_announcement.htm#sthash.3MIVJdHj.dpuf
.S. DOT made an additional commitment to empowering cities to solve congestion and safety issues with connected vehicle technology by awarding $17 million to solve peak rush hour congestion in downtown Tampa and to protect the city’s pedestrians by equipping their smartphones with the same connected technology being put into the vehicles.  Tampa also committed to measuring the environmental benefits of using this technology. - See more at: http://www.its.dot.gov/press/2015/ngv_tech_announcement.htm#sthash.3MIVJdHj.dpuf
In Wyoming, the focus is on the efficient and safe movement of freight through the I-80 east-west corridor, which is critical to commercial heavy-duty vehicles moving across the northern portion of our country. Approximately 11,000 to 16,000 vehicles travel this corridor every day, and by using V2V and V2I, Wyoming DOT will both collect information and disseminate it to vehicles not equipped with the new technologies. - See more at: http://www.its.dot.gov/press/2015/ngv_tech_announcement.htm#sthash.3MIVJdHj.dpuf
