Connected Traffic Control System (CTCS): Research Planning and Concept Development

The Connected Vehicle pooled fund study (CV PFS) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) have been collaborating to develop and demonstrate the Multi-Modal Intelligent Traffic Signal Systems (MMITSS) under the Dynamic Mobility Application Program of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT). Currently, the MMITSS Phase 3 (Deployment Readiness Enhancement) is under way. As an extension to these MMITSS efforts, CV PFS and USDOT have agreed on pursuing the “Connected Traffic Control System (CTCS): Research Planning and Concept Development” project together to conduct the foundational research for the overall future traffic control systems under the upcoming connected vehicle environment. Similar to the MMITSS Phase 1-3 effort, USDOT will provide CV PFS with funding ($400,000) and the CV PFS team will provide additional matching funds ($100,000). The UVA Center for Transportation Studies will oversee and administer a contract that will develop the CTCS research plan based on stakeholder input and a review of the state of the art.
