Demonstrations of the latest technologies in connected vehicles, workzone safety, traffic signal connectivity, and more will be showcased at the 2019 ITS America Annual Meeting. Demos will be held Tuesday June 4th from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM; Wednesday June 5th from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM; Thursday June 6th from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM ; and Friday June 7th from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM. Reservations for demos, when necessary, are free but may be limited in number. For more information, visit the demonstrating companies Exhibit Booth locations on the #ITSDC2019 show floor.


Ford Cellular Vehicle to Everything Applications - Booth 543

Ford will demonstrate Cellular Vehicle to Everything (C-V2X) technology with vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle-to-pedestrian (V2P), and vehicle-to-intersection (V2I) safety scenarios. Some of these scenarios include a pedestrian crossing a high-speed road and a road maintenance truck signaling a lane closure to unaware oncoming vehicles. In each safety scenario, the Ford vehicle will provide its driver with notifications to enhance safety for themselves as well as for those around them.


Safer Roads Demonstrated with FLIR Thermal for V2X and ADAS - Booth 648

Join us for a ride in the FLIR Thermal Enhanced Autonomous & Connected Test Vehicle at ITS America 2019. The ADAS and Connected Vehicle demo will use V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) communication between the vehicle, infrastructure, and cloud. The FLIR TrafiSense2 V2X solution, featuring a thermal imager and V2X technology, will detect pedestrians, cyclists and cars while sending and receiving V2X messages at the same time to enhance road safety. FLIR thermal technology has the ability to see through smoke, fog, sun glare and in total darkness, enhancing situational awareness for ADAS and resulting in safer roads with improved detection capabilities as demonstrated with this combination of complementary technologies. Reserve your spot for this demo in advance by RSVPing to EventBrite or by visiting the FLIR Booth #648.

As you ride in the FLIR Thermal-Enhanced Autonomous & Connected Test Vehicle, experience first-hand how thermal cameras enhance the effectiveness of advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), address the performance gaps in the current autonomous vehicle (AV) sensor suite, and provide valuable street-level information. Discover how the connected vehicle’s suite of AV sensors, including radar, LIDAR, and FLIR thermal and visible cameras improve situational awareness. Look at an industry’s first 360-degree thermal street view.  See how thermal technology allows you to detect and classify pedestrians in a cluttered background and despite adverse lighting and weather conditions. Watch as the FLIR TrafiSense2 V2X detects cyclists and pedestrians in urban areas and intersections and at typical areas where the field of view of a vehicle is affected and occluded by infrastructure, parked vehicles, or any other obstacles. Witness how the TrafiSense2 V2X broadcasts a Personal Safety Message (PSM) for vulnerable road users to the vehicle.

View warning signals and heads-up displays as they appear on the dashboard of the FLIR connected vehicle to draw the driver’s attention to a specific crossing or to reduce speeds because of an approaching cyclist or pedestrian.


Audi connect® Traffic Light Information - Booth 542

Audi connect® Traffic Light Information is the first automotive OEM connected vehicle application for vehicle-to-infrastructure, launched in December 2016. This demonstration of a vehicle-to-infrastructure service shows how existing technology, networks, and software can support connected vehicle applications today at little cost to government agencies. The vehicles used for this demonstration are actually production vehicles available from Audi, with no retrofit or other aftermarket integrations. The information service, Personal Signal Assistant, from Traffic Technology Services, Inc. is supported by an open data portal from DDOT.

Participants will experience two connected vehicle applications, TTG (Time-To-Green) and GLOSA (Green Light Optimized Speed Advisory), available from the Audi connect® Traffic Light Information feature. TTG informs drivers while approaching a red indication the remaining time until the traffic signal will turn green, in some instances addressing dilemma zones. GLOSA informs drivers a recommended speed to pass through the intersection, either confirming the greenband approaching a green indication or providing a reduced speed to avoid stopping.


Reduce Traffic Impact and Increase Work Zone Safety using Smart Technologies - BOoth 216

GEWI and iCone will demonstrate an off-the-shelf solution for Smart Work Zones which enables agencies to capture real-time data from Work Zones including speed, operational status, location, arrow board status and advice, and service vehicle position.

Conference attendees can inspect the Work Zone devices in the field and at the GEWI booth, to see how this information is provided to navigation devices, broadcasters, web sites, apps, and other systems. Additional tools will be available to demonstrate data quality management and compliance with USDOT National Work Zone data standards, as well as data audit functions.
