Transportation agencies have common emphasis areas
Transportation Agencies have Common Emphasis Areas

  • Mobility & System Management:

    Congestion mitigation to maintain mobility and economic vitality

    Improve efficiencies and effectiveness of systems and operations

  • Safety:

    Crash avoidance and reduction of accidents, injuries and deaths

  • Security:

    Protect key assets and support security operations and incident response

Problem Statement

With current and projected growth in vehicle trips:

  • Need to improve safety, mobility, security and economic vitality across the entire transportation network

  • Need to leverage (significant) existing investments

  • Need smarter integration of elements - vehicles, driver, cargo, infrastructure, data, and roadside activities

  • Need to better manage transportation system including cross-agency coordination

  • Need Commercial and Transit Vehicles prioritized and integrated in ITS initiatives

Potential solution next generation of its vehicle infrastructure integration vii
Potential Solution: Next Generation of ITS – Vehicle Infrastructure Integration (VII)!

  • Uses Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) – same as E-Z Pass! (915MHz transponder based toll collection system using roadside readers)

  • 5.9GHz technology – high speed, high capacity, secure data transmission

  • Can be integrated into control systems of vehicle

  • Allows high speed, high capacity, secure data communication between vehicles and to/from roadside to vehicles

Commercial & Transit Vehicles need to be added!

VII and 5.9 GHz DSRC in Action Infrastructure Integration (VII)!

A car speeding toward a red light receives a safety alert.

Others are warned that it is suddenly braking.

NO PLANSto make this work with Trucks or Busses

A disabled car and tow truck transmit hazard warnings to approaching passenger vehicles (only!).

2008 ITS World Congress Infrastructure Integration (VII)!

  • Javitts Center, Manhattan

  • November 16-20, 2008

  • Three VII Corridors

    - Manhattan Local Streets (NYCDOT)

    - Long Island Expressway (NYSDOT)

    - Spring Valley Corridor (Suffern to Tappan Zee Bridge) (NYSTA in partnership w/NYSDOT, NYSBA & MTA)

Vii coverage spring valley corridor
VII Coverage – Spring Valley Corridor Infrastructure Integration (VII)!

  • Potential 14 sites covering 13 miles

  • Coverage between each interchange link

  • Average density: .9 miles

  • Greatest distance between sites: 1.7 miles

  • Least distance between sites: .6 miles

Commercial vehicle infrastructure integration cvii
Commercial Vehicle Infrastructure Integration (CVII) Infrastructure Integration (VII)!

  • Objective(s): Utilizing the most advanced communications technologies, exchange real-time information between the roadside and commercial vehicles to improve safety and mobility

    • Field-demonstrate CVII-based capabilities through a permanently deployed 13-mile test site on the NYS Thruway Authority Corridor during 2008 World Congress

    • Initiate commercial vehicle communication

      development to be included in the national

      VII effort

  • Approved I-95 Funding: $750,000

I 95 corridor coalition year 15 priority project recommendation
I-95 Corridor Coalition: Year 15 Priority Project Recommendation

  • Commercial Vehicle Infrastructure Integration (CVII)

    • Utilizing DSRC communications technologies to exchange real-time information between the roadside and commercial vehicles to improve safety, security and mobility

    • Initiate and advance CV Manufacturers VII vehicle based development to “catch up” with VIIC

    • Develop and integrate software to allow CV vehicles to communicate with roadside system (and to passenger vehicles!)

Importance of the Effort Recommendation

  • Critical to the national transportation goals of safety, security & mobility that CV be in VII Initiative “box”

  • The investment in, and benefits from, VII & ITS can only be maximized if the most critical vehicles types (CV, Transit) in terms of facility design, safety, security risk, infrastructure maintenance & economic benefits are included

Nysta nysdot i 95 cvii program
NYSTA, NYSDOT & I-95 CVII Program Recommendation

  • Modifying existing infrastructure and communications for 13 mile VII corridor with 4 additional sites (NYSDOT, NYSTA, NYSBA)

  • Develop CV vehicle system and software to build upon existing VII efforts, I-95 NC/NCHP/Volvo Truck Project and FMCSA’s Wireless Vehicle Safety Inspection Project

  • Test Wireless CV Driver I.D and Verification (TWIC, Biometrics)

  • Test Wireless Vehicle Safety Inspection Information (brake condition, tire pressure, light status, etc.)

  • Goal: Complete work by October 2008

i RecommendationCone – Real Time GPS and Speed Monitoring Traffic Barrelfrom Calmar Telematics

  • A simple idea made possible through modern technology

    • - Communicates/Delineates Work Zone or Incident locations in Real Time

    • - Provides Traffic Monitoring Information
