The transportation revolution is coming. Connected vehicles (CV) are already talking to each other and the infrastructure around them, sending basic safety messages ten times per second. Smart cities are embracing the promise of connected technologies to improve safety, mobility, and sustainability for their citizens. Once deployed nationwide, these technologies will produce massive amounts of data from hundreds of millions of vehicles. What new businesses, public services, and research could these data fuel? Could CV data be used for micro-forecasting or added to the national climatic data record? What should the Federal role be in enabling nationwide access to the data while protecting the travelers’ privacy? The US Department of Transportation invites you to join the conversation and help shape our national strategy for intelligent transportation data. We will discuss our strategy for accelerating deployment of CV and smart city technologies, types and amounts of data produced, and potential uses.
