USDOT published ACME’s final report on the performance evaluation of the Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA) Connected Vehicle (CV) Pilot Deployment. The report details the result of more than three years of data collection and analysis.
The study evaluated the deployment of CV technology in six use cases to address mobility and safety issues in specific areas of downtown Tampa, Florida. The research implemented a robust experimental design to enroll more than 1,000 private citizens to experience the functionality and impact of several vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) applications. The study analyzed behavioral responses to the V2V and V2I applications using a before-after behavioral response assessment and interrupted time-series analysis.
CUTR would like to thank the Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority and its entire team for their leadership and the USDOT for the timely, valuable, and constructive feedback offered by review teams. CUTR would also like to thank Volpe and the support contractor Noblis. Finally, the research team would like to thank Mr. Govind Vadakpat for his leadership and continued support throughout Phase 1-3 of the Pilot.
