SPaT Challenge Webinar Series

Announcing the SPaT Challenge Webinar Series

The National Operations Center of Excellence will be hosting a webinar series covering the SPaT Challenge, including design considerations and deployment.

The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE), and ITS America (ITSA) working together through the Vehicle to Infrastructure Deployment Coalition (V2I DC) have challenged state and local public sector transportation infrastructure owners and operators (IOOs) to work together to achieve deployment of roadside Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) 5.9 GHz broadcast radio infrastructure to broadcast signal phase and timing (SPaT) in real-time at signalized intersections on at least one road corridor or street network (approximately 20 signalized intersections) in each of the 50 states by January 2020. This is commonly called the SPaT Challenge.
