TAMPA, Fla., March 5, 2019 – The Autonomous-Connected Mobility Evaluation (ACME) program at the Center for Urban Transportation Research has played a pivotal role in providing the latest data from the Tampa Connected Vehicle (CV) Pilot project to the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Data Hub, which provides open data from the three connected vehicle technology pilot programs in Wyoming, Tampa, and New York City.
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) reports that the Tampa Connected Vehicle (CV) Pilot is the second project site to complete its data pipeline and send continuous data deliveries to the ITS DataHub. As a result, the ITS DataHub provides the latest data, including:
Basic Safety Messages (BSM): Used to exchange safety data regarding vehicles’ current attributes, including speed and path predicted.
Traveler Information Messages (TIM): Used to convey important traffic information and provide situational awareness warnings to the drivers.
Signal Phasing and Timing (SPaT) Messages: Used to convey the current status of one or more signalized intersections.
Visit the ITS DataHub to access the latest data from the Tampa CV Pilot project.
