On behalf of the U.S. Department of Transportation, ITS America frequently delivers webinars to the ITS stakeholder community in order to inform interested parties of some of the current work that is being done in the industry. In particular these webinars focus on the work being done by the ITS Research program which is led by the ITS Joint Program Office (JPO). Most presentations relate directly to the Connected Vehicle Program, though other areas of interest are also addressed.

Upcoming Webinar on the Smart Columbus Program Connected Vehicle Environment Concept of Operations
This webinar will focus on the ConOps developed by the City of Columbus. The ConOps conveys a high-level view of the system to be implemented from the viewpoint of each stakeholder. It frames the overall system, sets the technical course for the project, and serves as a bridge between early project motivations and the technical requirements. Finally, the ConOps offers stakeholders -- and the larger ITS community -- the opportunity to provide input as to how the proposed system should function, which will help build consensus and create a single vision for the system moving forward.
This webinar is the first in a series of webinars focusing on ConOps and trade studies developed as part of the Smart Columbus program. Stay tuned for more upcoming public webinars from the Smart Columbus program.
Title: Smart Columbus Program Connected Vehicle Environment (CVE) Concept of Operations (ConOps) Webinar
Date: Wednesday, July 25,2018
Time: 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM ET
Free Public Webinar Series on the Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program: Device Acquisition and Installation
The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) will host a free webinar for each Connected Vehicle Pilot site about the connected vehicle devices being acquired and installed as part of the deployment. Representatives from each pilot site will provide an overview of their approach to identifying the type and number of devices, equipment, and software-based capabilities that needed to be acquired for the pilot. These webinars will also address their approach to engaging with vendors and getting the devices in hand and installed while adhering to a stringent installation schedule.
Sponsored by the USDOT's Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (ITS JPO), the Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program is a national effort to deploy, test, and operationalize cutting-edge mobile and roadside technologies and enable multiple connected vehicle applications. These innovative technologies and applications have the potential for immediate beneficial impacts -- to save lives, improve personal mobility, enhance economic productivity, and transform public agency operations.
The USDOT awarded three cooperative agreements, collectively worth more than $45 million, to three agencies: the Wyoming Department of Transportation (DOT), New York City DOT (NYCDOT), and Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA). From September 2015 to September 2016, each site prepared a comprehensive deployment concept to ensure a rapid and efficient connected vehicle capability roll-out. Now, the three sites are wrapping up Phase 2 where they have worked to design, build, and test these deployments of integrated wireless in-vehicle, mobile device, and roadside technologies.
