Start Date:


PDH Credit



The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) conducts research on cooperative driving automation (CDA) with the goal of advancing transportation systems management and operations (TSMO) strategies. The CARMA program, a network of open source software and support services focused on enhancing digital infrastructure, enables testing and evaluation of emerging CDA capabilities. Cooperative perception (CP) refers to a road entity’s ability to share locally perceived data with other vehicles and roadside infrastructure. This webinar will provide an overview of the CP concept of operations (ConOps), how the CARMA ecosystem contributes to developing CP use case scenarios, and the functional needs for developing and deploying CP applications in CDA environments.

Target Audience

  • Transportation agencies & Infrastructure Owner Operators
  • University researchers
  • Developers and deployers of CDA technology

Learning Objectives

Participants will hear from CARMA engineers and developers, and have the opportunity to provide feedback, about progress, challenges, and next steps in the development process for CP in a CDA environment.
