Overview: Leveraging the Promise of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles to Improve Integrated Corridor Management and Operations: A Primer

This primer examines connected and automated vehicles (CAV) and how the advent of this new technology can be incorporated into an integrated corridor management (ICM) approach. It also looks at ways ICM can address the challenges and opportunities of CAV. In addition, the document explores opportunities to effectively integrate CAV institutionally, operationally, and technically, both by leveraging existing platforms and considering options for coordination between ICM and CAV stakeholders. While integrating CAV and ICM holds great promise for more efficient operations on both ends, it is not without challenges. This document explores these challenges and how they can be overcome.
