Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program: Comprehensive Transition Plan – WYDOTAuthor/Presenter: English, Tony; Garcia, Vince; Peel, Brian; Zumpf, Shane; Gopalakrishna, Deepak; Serulle, Nayel Urena
The Wyoming Department of Transportation’s (WYDOT) Connected Vehicle (CV) Pilot Deployment Program is intended to develop a suite of applications that utilize vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) and vehicle to vehicle (V2V) communication technology to reduce the impact of adverse weather on truck travel in the I-80 corridor. These applications support a flexible range of services from advisories, roadside alerts, parking notifications and dynamic travel guidance. Information from these applications are made available directly to the equipped fleets or through data connections to fleet management centers (who will then communicate it to their trucks using their own systems). The pilot will be conducted in three Phases. Phase 1 includes the planning for the CV pilot including the concept of operations development. Phase 2 is the design, development, and testing phase. Phase 3 includes a real-world demonstration of the applications developed as part of this pilot. This document presents a plan to effectively transition from the pilot stage to continuous operation of the system as part of WYDOT’s regular operations.
