U.S. Department of Transportation Offers a Connected Vehicle Pilot Data Story to Help Practitioners Navigate Datasets
ITS DataHub currently hosts connected vehicle data from the Tampa and Wyoming Connected Vehicle Pilot sites, with the New York Connected Vehicle Pilot site’s data expected to be added in the future. Datasets include Basic Safety Messages, Traveler Information Messages, and Signal Phase and Timing messages, all of which are transmitted via dedicated short-range communications.
To help practitioners more easily understand the data available and how to access it, the U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) developed a Connected Vehicle Pilot “Data Story.” This story provides an overview of each Connected Vehicle Pilot, describes the types of data available, and walks users through how to access the various datasets.
ITS DataHub provides a single point of entry to discover publicly available U.S. DOT ITS research data. By providing access to these data, the U.S. DOT aims to enable third-party research into the effectiveness of emerging ITS technologies, preliminary development of third-party applications, and harmonization of data across similar collections.
To access the all of ITS DataHub’s datasets, please visit: www.its.dot.gov/data.
