This public meeting is being held in support of the V2I for Safety Program for Connected Vehicles Initiative lead by JPO.  The purpose of this program is to enable the development of vehicle based applications and safety systems that will assist drivers in avoiding crashes.  As part of this program, FHWA’s role is to develop roadside equipment and other enabling technologies that will enable these safety applications to function properly.

The purpose of this meeting is to meet with primary stakeholders and subject matter experts to review concepts of how selected safety applications will work that involve infrastructure components.  The outcome of this meeting will provide customer based feedback on how these safety applications can be developed to achieve maximum effectiveness while minimizing cost.
