Moving CAVs Into Operations - June 5th - 1:30 to 2:15pm

Connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) have been part of the research agenda and have been piloted throughout the United States. While signal phase and timing, transit signal priority, freight signal priority, and many applications have been deployed and tested in several locations, the deployment of CAV systems has now moved well beyond research and pilots. This session will focus on agencies making the transition to using CAVs to improve transportation system operations. States that have deployed or are in the process of deploying CAVs will describe their plans to leverage CAV functionalities to improve throughput and safety and to measure system performance.

Transportation Agency Perspectives on Data Dissemination in the Connected Vehicle Environment - June 5th - 2:30 to 3:15pm

Transportation data is being collected for traffic management and operations, transportation planning, performance measurement, and traveler information purposes from roadway sensors and vehicle probes. Some public agencies are making the transportation operations data they have now available to anyone who wishes to ingest it. The benefits of making this data available are the possibilities of third party application development a reality as private entities harness the data for mobility, safety and information services. As connected vehicles emerge and proliferate on the transportation network, the number of vehicle probes, the resolution of the data available, and the types of data that can be gathered will grow dramatically. This can present challenges for data dissemination as agencies enter the connected vehicle environment. This panel will provide a public sector agency perspective of their current transportation data dissemination approaches as well as what they see the challenges being as the connected vehicle environment matures and their data volume escalates.

Washington, D.C. Area Incident Response Discussion - June 5th - 3:30 to 5:00pm

A key part of Emergency Response Day 2019 will be taking time to discuss a few specific major incidents that have occurred recently in the DC Area. We’ll hear from state DOT representatives and local responders on the major challenges faced, key successes, and major challenges. The entire ITS and response community is invited to attend to learn about traffic incident management viewpoints during after action reviews of incidents and to discuss how the industry can both prepare for and prevent major incidents.


Connected Vehicles (CV) and Data for Safety and Mobility – A Live “Request for Information” Dialogue June 6th - 11:30am to 12:15pm

More and more public agencies are posting Requests for Information (RFIs) on Connected Vehicle (CV) solutions – including all elements of sensors, communication, road side units, data integration and applications – all to promote safety of all modes and mobility on our roadways. More structured dialogue is occurring between public and private sector on innovations and opportunities as well as challenges to meeting quickly changing demands for mobility and safety within the new technology framework. Many of these RFIs and dialogues are centered around how to use the data to demonstrate return on investment of CV applications. This session will feature 3 public sector representatives. Several actual recent RFI questions will be compiled and discussed among the panel. Topics will include innovations in all aspects of CV, featuring using data to demonstrate improved safety and mobility and aspects of contracting and partnering that are necessary for success for public agencies as we move toward a connected world.
