CARMA Collaborative and Technology Transfer

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has developed the Cooperative Automation Research Mobility Applications (CARMA) open source cooperative automated driving technology reference platforms, CARMA platform and CARMA cloud, to accelerate innovation around automated driving technology and interaction with roadway infrastructure. CARMA will accelerate the development of this technology with the high-level objective of evaluating the potential use of cooperative automation to improve mobility and safety of the transportation system. A key component to this effort is that the CARMA platform is open source software and enables research stakeholders (DOTs, academia, private sector) to use this resource to conduct cooperative automation research. CARMA Collaborative was established to bring together experts from academia, industry and public agencies to collaborate as a community on the opportunities of this enabling technology and the applications within the Transportation System Management and Operations (TSMO) programs. By breaking down the stove pipes across these groups and enabling the incubation of ideas focused on the future of TSMO. Engaging industry through stakeholder workshops, webinars, data and information sharing, technical support, and technology transfer is critical to the success of collaborative research to advance cooperative automation. This project will actively engage the AV research community to support their awareness and use of the CARMA research tools and collaborate with each other for rapid technology transfer.
