TITLE: Connected Vehicle Architecture Workshop
DATE: Thursday, June 16
TIME: 9:00am - 12:30pm PST
LOCATION: Almaden Ballroom, Hilton San Jose Hotel, 300 Almaden Boulevard, San Jose, CA
This public workshop will cover connected vehicle architecture, standards, and software tools. It will include both an architecture workshop and an introduction to software tools.

  • Architecture Workshop: The USDOT will provide an update on the connected vehicle architecture's evolution and the upcoming migration into the U.S. National ITS Architecture. During this workshop, the USDOT will also discuss internationally cooperative efforts to provide detailed standards recommendations across connected vehicle architectures. The connected vehicle architecture provides a consistent framework to guide the planning and deployment of connected vehicle technologies. It identifies options for interoperable deployment of technologies from enterprise, physical, functional, and communications perspectives. The connected vehicle architecture facilitates jurisdictions' ability to operate collaboratively and employ a regional approach to transportation challenges. During the workshop, the USDOT will request stakeholder feedback and recommendations for future changes and additions to the connected vehicle architecture.
  • Software Tools Introduction: The Systems Engineering Tool for Intelligent Transportation (SET-IT) allows implementers and decision-makers to develop their own connected vehicle project architectures for deployment. The training session will introduce the SET-IT tool, which can develop multilayered, customized connected vehicle architectures that support pilot and initial operational deployments. Participants are encouraged to install SET-IT on their computers in advance to maximize the value of the training. The application requires an installed and activated 32-bit version of Microsoft Visio 2010 or higher. SET-IT is available at no cost from the following website:
