Start Date:

January 22, 2019 from 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm EST


This webinar will include presentations from several agencies that have operational SPaT deployments, with an emphasis on lessons learned and discussion that encompasses all stages from planning, procurement, installation, testing, and operations. The American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO), the Institute of Traffic 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.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will have a broad understanding SPaT deployments from agencies that are now operational, and understand related lessons learned and challenges that agencies have overcome.
