This list contains only those members that have given us permission to include their organization on our website

In addition to the collaborators who have signed the MOA, a number of organizations have expressed interest in becoming an Affiliated Test Bed collaborator. Any organization that signs the MOA has an equal opportunity to participate in the affiliation.

The purpose of the agreements and similar memoranda is to create a non-binding, precompetitive affiliation among those using devices and installations related to V-I communications. The affiliation will facilitate information exchanges, share USDOT tools and resources, and encourage the consistent development and deployment of infrastructure components.

This directly supports the ITS JPO Connected Vehicle program goal of ensuring a successful deployment of 5.9GHz DSRC and other communication media in Research Test Beds.
