The Connected Vehicle Program

OVERVIEW

It Used To Be IntelliDrive ... Now It's "Connected Vehicles"

Connected Vehicles is a suite of technologies and applications that use wireless communications to provide connectivity that can deliver transformational safety, mobility, and environmental improvements in surface transportation. Connected Vehicle applications provide connectivity:

  • V2V - with and among vehicles
  • V2I - between vehicles and the roadway infrastructure
  • V2D - among vehicles, infrastructure, and wireless devices (consumer electronics, such as cell phones and PDAs) that are carried by drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists

Like the Internet, which provides information connectivity, The Connected Vehicle Program provides a starting point for transportation connectivity that ultimately will enable countless applications and spawn new industries. Today we can see only the tip of the iceberg.

The Connected Vehicle Program vision is threefold:

Safety - The Connected Vehicle Program enables vehicles with 360-degree awareness to inform a driver of hazards and situations they can’t see. Ultimately, The Connected Vehicle Program may lead to crashless vehicles.

Mobility - In an information age, The Connected Vehicle Program can give complete multi-modal information about transportation network’s real-time performance to:

  • Travelers and
  • Transportation managers

Environment - The Connected Vehicle Program can help reduce the environmental impact of a trip by providing real-time information about traffic congestion and other travel conditions to help travelers make more informed decisions. Informed travelers may decide to avoid congestion by taking alternate routes or public transit, or by rescheduling their trip—all of which can make their trip more fuel-efficient and eco-friendly. The Connected Vehicle Program applications also can help drivers maintain their vehicles for maximum energy efficiency.
