ITS Joint Program Office; Webinar on Connected Vehicle 
Infrastructure Deployment Analysis Report Review; Notice of Public 
Meeting

AGENCY: Research and Innovative Technology Administration, U.S. 
Department of Transportation.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) ITS Joint Program 
Office (ITS JPO) will host a free public webinar on June 24, 2011 at 1 
p.m. (EDT) to discuss the Connected Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment 
Analysis Report. The webinar will provide an opportunity for 
stakeholders to hear about and provide feedback on the American 
Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) 
Connected Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment Analysis Report developed 
by the AASHTO Connected Vehicle Working Group with support from USDOT. 
The purpose of the report is to explore infrastructure deployment 
approaches and potential issues for state and local transportation 
agencies, primarily from a state DOT perspective. The analysis does not 
significantly consider the needs and interests of transit and trucking 
stakeholders, as these communities' visions and issues are being 
considered elsewhere in the ITS program in conjunction with their 
respective stakeholder organizations.
    The AASHTO Working Group is made up of representatives of eleven 
state agencies, along with three local transportation agencies, and one 
metropolitan planning organization. Automotive representatives from the 
Vehicle Infrastructure Integration Consortium (VIIC), private sector 
equipment manufacturers, and telecommunications service providers were 
also invited to the Deployment Plan meetings, and they actively and 
constructively participated in the discussions leading to this report.
    The report covers connected vehicle applications of most interest 
to the states, current state and local programs underway, deployment 
readiness in the vehicle market, aftermarket devices and 
communications, the magnitude of effort to upgrade the nation's signal 
controllers with Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) 
capabilities, and a set of deployment scenarios with corresponding 
strategies and actions for the state and local transportation 
community.
    Connected Vehicle research at the USDOT is a multimodal program 
that

involves using wireless communication between vehicles, infrastructure, 
and personal communications devices to improve safety, mobility, and 
environmental sustainability. The program is the major research 
initiative of the ITS JPO, which is currently working with the eight 
major automotive companies to develop vehicle crash warning 
applications using DSRC technology. In addition, the ITS JPO is working 
to develop a myriad of applications which will use data collected from 
connected vehicles that can improve safety, mobility and 
sustainability. There is also connected vehicle-related research in the 
areas of standards, data collection, certification, policy, road 
weather, and public transportation.
    Persons planning to attend the webinar should send their full name, 
organization, and business e-mail address to Adam Hoops at ITS America 
at Ahopps@ITSA.org by June 16, 2011. Please specify the name of the 
webinar in the e-mail. For additional questions, please contact Adam 
Hoops at (202) 680-0091.

    Issued in Washington, DC on the 6th day of June 2011.

Managing Director, ITS Joint Program Office.
