Recognizing the need to promulgate the widespread adoption of connected vehicles, the NEMA Transportation Management Systems Section has commissioned a Connected Vehicle Infrastructure Technical Committee.

Recognizing the need to promulgate the widespread adoption of connected vehicles, the NEMA Transportation Management Systems Section has commissioned a Connected Vehicle Infrastructure Technical Committee. Attendees at a Connected Vehicle Industry Workshop that occurred at NEMA in early April echoed a common theme that industry has an imperative role in moving this technology forward and making it more mainstream.

“Industry growth is being hindered by a lack of confidence at the state, city, and local DOT level,” said Section Chair Bryan Mulligan. “A key element for the success of connected and automated vehicles is vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) communications and developing a set of Standards to ensure vehicles, traffic signals, and other electronic roadway safety assets can talk to one another. The NEMA Connected Vehicle Infrastructure Technical Committee was formed to accomplish just that.” ei
