Cooperative Automated Transportation (CAT) Coalition

The Cooperative Automated Transportation Coalition (CAT) serves as a collaborative focal point for federal, state and local government officials, academia, industry and their related associations to address critical program and technical issues associated with the nationwide deployment of connected and automated vehicles on streets and highways.  Coalition membership includes representation from infrastructure owners and operators (IOOs), original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), technology and service providers, and internet of things (IOT) suppliers.

The work of the CAT Coalition is accomplished through seven working groups, which were formerly a part of the Connected and Automated Vehicle Executive Leadership Team (CAV ELT) and the Vehicle-to-Infrastructure Deployment Coalition (V2I DC).  The efforts of the working groups are coordinated and overseen by Co-Chairs as shown in the figure below:
