TTI, TxDOT Team up to Test Connected Vehicle TechnologyAbstract:
This article discusses I-35 Connected Work Zone, a $2 million project funded by U.S. Department of Transportation. This is a four-year project undertaken by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute on behalf of the Texas Department of Transportation. This project will initially focus on improving freight movement along the construction corridor by providing long-haul trucks a steady stream of traveller information through on-board devices capable of receiving work zone infrastructure data. That information includes lane-closure locations, delay lengths and projected delays up to a week in advance.
