CONNECTED VEHICLES: U.S. DOT to host free public workshops on CV integration with ITS architecture

June 27, 2017

The workshops will cover National ITS Architecture

The U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) is planning to host two public workshops to discuss the integration of details of connected-vehicle capabilities into the National Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Architecture.

The workshops will cover National ITS Architecture, version 7.1 integration with the Connected Vehicle Reference Implementation Architecture into ARC-IT Version 8.0.

ARC-IT provides a unifying framework that covers ITS comprehensively, including connected vehicle and traditional infrastructure ITS capabilities,” U.S. DOT reports.

U.S. DOT says the ITS Architecture offers a consistent framework to guide the planning and deployment of ITS and connected-vehicle technologies.

During the workshop, U.S. DOT will seek stakeholder feedback on the content and usability of the next-generation ITS Architecture. This workshop will also illustrate how ARC-IT relates to the National ITS Architecture, Version 7.1, and the CVRIA; describe the tools (what they are, what they are used for, and who should use them in planning for deployment); and describe how ARC-IT fits into the deployment process.

The first workshop will take place July 26-27, 2017, in Dearborn, Mich., while the second will be in San Jose, Calif., from Aug. 9-10, 2017.
