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 development, testing, and evaluation of emerging CDA capabilities. This webinar will provide an overview of the Transit Signal Priority (TSP) Concept of Operations (ConOps), how the CARMA ecosystem can contribute to developing and improving TSP use case scenarios, and the functional needs for developing and deploying TSP 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 ConOps development process for TSP in a CDA environment.
