The USDOT is pleased to announce the release of a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for Phase 1: Concept Development of the Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program, January 30, 2015.
Connected vehicle research is being sponsored by the USDOT and others to leverage the potentially transformative capabilities of wireless technology to make surface transportation safer, smarter, and greener. These efforts have resulted in a considerable body of research that is now in hand to support pilot deployments. Building on the collective body of connected vehicle research, the Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program seeks operational deployments of connected vehicle applications that synergistically capture and utilize new forms of connected vehicle and mobile device data to improve multimodal surface transportation system performance and enable enhanced performance-based systems management. The overall objective of Phase 1 is to set the stage for a connected vehicle pilot deployment that has an observable and measureable near-term impact, deployed on-time, and within budget.
As indicated in the BAA, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) intends to award multiple Firm Fixed Price (FFP) Contracts. The anticipated period of performance shall not exceed 12 months.
