PDH Credit



The United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) is proactively addressing the challenge of developing and testing the plethora of scenarios that autonomous vehicles will encounter once deployed in the transportation system. The Virtual Open Innovation Collaborative Environment for Safety (VOICES) Proof of Concept (PoC) aims to tackle these challenges by offering a shared virtual environment on a secure network that enables vehicles and systems across the transportation ecosystem to interoperate while synchronized to common scenarios. The project allows organizations to develop and test their systems in a high-fidelity representation of the surface transportation ecosystem, sharing infrastructure and resources while still protecting intellectual property.

Transportation agencies.

Infrastructure owner operators.

University researchers.

Automotive manufacturers.

Developers and deployers of CDA technology.

This webinar will provide background on the motivation and vision of the VOICES project, an overview of the initial CDA use cases supported, integration of elements needed for distributed virtual testing, and results from a preliminary demonstration. This builds on the previous VOICES webinar held in October 2021 that introduced VOICES and provided a technical overview of the key components of the VOICES PoC. Participants will hear from USDOT personnel and have the opportunity to provide feedback on the progress, challenges, and next steps in the development of the VOICES PoC.
