This webinar will include presentations of steps for agencies to consider after completing the SPaT Challenge, including the deployment of applications supported by SPaT broadcasts and installation of on-board units (OBUs) on agency fleet vehicles as part of the Connected Fleet Challenge.
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.
Participants will have a broad understanding of additional applications and on-board devices that agencies have deployed to leverage SPaT broadcasts and understand some of the related lessons learned and challenges that agencies have overcome.
State and local transportation agency engineering and technical staff interested in deploying SPaT broadcasts; private contractors and consultants that support state and local transportation agencies; private-sector vendors and manufacturers of connected vehicle equipment related to DSRC, roadside equipment, and signal controllers.
