Federal solicitation for Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployments

On Friday, January 30, the Federal Highway Administration released a solicitation for the Connected Vehicle (CV) Pilot Deployments in FedBizOpps. It is available at:

https://www.fbo.gov/index?s=opportunity&mode=form&id=4bb6693ac3021c178595d83fab3b5d73&tab=core&_cview=1

Responses are due by March 16. As noted in the solicitation, the CV Pilot Deployment Program seeks operational deployments of connected vehicle applications that synergistically capture & utilize new forms of connected vehicle & mobile device data to improve multimodal surface transportation system performance and enable enhanced performance-based systems management. Connected vehicle applications support improved decision-making by both system users (travelers) & system managers.

The intent is to deploy site-tailored collections of applications that address specific local needs while laying a foundation for additional local or regional deployment, and to provide transferable lessons learned for other prospective deployers across the nation.

All questions concerning this solicitation must be directed to Sarah Khan in the Office of Acquisition & Grants Management at sarah.khan@dot.gov.

More general information about the Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployments program is available from the ITS Joint Program Office at www.its.dot.gov/pilots/.

Call for Posters – Due September 6

The TRB Congestion Pricing Committee (ABE25) and TRB Managed Lanes Committee (AHB35) invite all interested parties to submit applications for a poster session display at the TRB Annual Meeting in Washington, DC.  This session will provide a unique opportunity to interact with an international audience in sharing experiences of your projects and research that feature transportation pricing and managed lanes.

The Joint Poster Session will highlight new research and lessons learned in planning, implementing and operating congestion pricing and managed lane projects.  Our objective is to share and discuss research findings and case studies that identify best practices, examine use of new technologies, and build awareness of the challenges that underlie successful projects.  Sales presentations on specific products or services will not be accepted.
