Title: “The Road to a Connected Corridor – US 33”

Synopsis:  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) implementation of connected vehicle technology could reduce crashes by 80%.  What are the challenges that come with creating connected infrastructure?  The 33 Smart Mobility Corridor is blazing a new trail on the road to becoming a connected corridor.  NW 33 Innovation Corridor Council of Governments was awarded a $6 million USDOT Advanced Transportation Congestion Management Technologies Deployment (ATCMTD) grant to implement connected vehicle technologies along a 35-mile section of US 33 between the City of Dublin and City of Marysville near Columbus, Ohio. The corridor connects two nodes of automotive research: the Transportation Research Center (TRC) and Smart Columbus and includes multiple public and private partners. The US 33 corridor will offer a unique opportunity to deploy and test smart vehicle technology in various settings, including; urban, suburban, and rural and roadway types, including; local, arterial, and collector streets and multi-lane divided highway ramps. The project includes the installation of 61 dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) devices along US 33 with another 32 installed at traffic signals within the Cities of Marysville and Dublin, equipping between 600 and 1,200 vehicles with connected vehicle technology, developing V2I applications, and developing a connected vehicle environment to manage the data flows and system. An initial pilot of Signal Phasing and Timing was deployed across six signalized intersections within the two cities in January. This session will provide an overview of the project, with a special focus on the lessons learned so far during the implementation.

Will close presentation taking some time to discuss what we envision being needed from an education/training standpoint for current and future engineers to be better positioned for jobs related to CV/AV.
