U.S Department of Transportation has annouced the upcoming Talking Technology and Transportation (T3) Webinar in the topic “Connected Vehicle Basics” which will be presented by Valerie Briggs and Brian Cronin from U.S.DOT.
Date: Thursday, April 24, 2014
Time: 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM ET
Connected vehicles use communications technology to allow cars, trucks, transit vehicles, traffic signals, work zones, and even pedestrians to “talk” to each other and exchange valuable information that could help avoid crashes and hazards. Connected vehicles have the potential to transform the way Americans travel through the creation of a safe, interoperable wireless communications network—a system that includes cars, buses, trucks, trains, traffic signals, cellphones, and other devices.
This webinar’s objectives include :
- Offer a broad overview of the Connected Vehicle Research Program.
- Describe some of the U.S. DOT’s cutting-edge research as part of the Connected Vehicle Research Program.
- Offer information on how State DOTs, metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), local and county organizations and the private sector can get involved.
