This webinar provides an overview of traffic incident management (TIM), basic travel, and road weather management use cases developed through the FHWA’s CARMA Program. Updates were shared on completed and upcoming validation testing, and learn how they can utilize FHWA’s research and contribute to the CARMA Platform.
- Transportation agencies & infrastructure owner operators
- University researchers
- Developers and deployers of CDA technology
Participants will hear from CARMA engineers and developers, and have the opportunity to ask questions about progress, challenges, and next steps in the testing process for TIM, basic travel, and road weather management use cases.

Pavle Bujanovic, Government Task Manager (FHWA): Pavle Bujanović is the Technical Manager of the CARMA Program’s Reliability Research Track. In this role he focuses on conducting Cooperative Driving Automation (CDA) research that will improve nonrecurring traffic congestion scenarios including TIM, work zone, and weather events. He is also the Technical Manager of FHWA’s CARMA 1tenth (C1T) efforts where the purpose is to decrease the barrier to entry into CDA research by creating an ecosystem of vehicles and infrastructure at roughly one tenth the size of real world systems.
Sudhakar Nallamothu, Project Manager (Leidos): Sudhakar Nallamothu is currently a Project Manager for the Saxton Transportation Operations Laboratory (STOL) at FHWA. He directs CARMA and other projects in the field of connected and automated vehicles.
