Free Public Webinar on the Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA) Connected Vehicle Pilot: Deployment Results and Transition Plan

Date/Time: Monday, January 25, 2021; 12:00 P.M. – 1:30 P.M. ET
Registration Link: https://theadeploymentresultswebinar.eventbrite.com

The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) will host a webinar to share the deployment performance results from the THEA Connected Vehicle Pilot and the plan to migrate the current pilot to Connected Vehicle Real-World Test Site (CVRTS). The activities in the plan include dual mode Roadside Units (RSUs) with Dedicated Short-Range Communications (DSRC) and Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) capabilities, spectrum interference testing support and direct Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) participation to demonstrate interoperability with OEM devices.

Sponsored by the USDOT Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (ITS JPO), the Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program is a national effort to deploy, test, and operationalize cutting-edge mobile and roadside technologies and enable multiple connected vehicle applications. These innovative technologies and applications have the potential for immediate beneficial impacts – to save lives, improve personal mobility, enhance economic productivity, reduce negative environmental impacts, and transform public agency operations.

The USDOT selected three agencies as CV Pilot deployment sites: the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT), the New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT), and the Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA). Each site prepared a comprehensive deployment concept to ensure a rapid and efficient connected vehicle capability roll-out. The sites then worked to design, build, and test these deployments of integrated wireless in-vehicle, mobile device, and roadside technologies. Now the THEA Pilot has completed the operational phase, where the tested system was operated and maintained in good working order over a period of 18 months and monitored on a set of key performance metrics to measure its impact.
