Connected Vehicle Analysis in Connected Marysville Pilot

Connected Vehicle (CV) technology has been under development for 20+ years, and it is continuing to advance. The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) has funded CV pilots in Tampa, Florida, Wyoming and in New York City. Ohio DOT is participating in a research pooled fund TPF-5(206) led by the Virginia DOT "Research Program to Support the Research, Development, and Deployment of System Operations Applications of Vehicle Infrastructure Integration (VII)". In 2016, the City of Dublin, the City of Marysville, Union County and the Marysville-Union County Port Authority created the NW 33 Council of Governments (COG) to oversee and manage development along the US-33 corridor. This Smart Corridor has $217 million of investment along the 35-mile corridor, supported by a fiber optic network. A component of that investment is a USDOT grant for an ATCMTD project (Advanced Transportation and Congestion Management Technologies Deployment); that $6 million will deploy and test Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) roadside units (RSU) along the Smart Corridor. ODOT is a partner in this US-33 ATCMTD project. There are a limited number of facilities doing CV research, as well as some deployment work in Ann Arbor and the three USDOT pilots. Ohio does not have any implementation of CV. ODOT is investing in a Connected Marysville project along with the City of Marysville, Honda and other partners. The project includes upgrading traffic signals for Red Light Violation Warning and Pedestrian in Signalized Crosswalk Warning. DSRC RSUs will be placed at key intersections for traffic monitoring. The pilot is estimated to begin in early 2019. The operation of connected vehicles on connected infrastructure will change existing transportation standards and assumptions. There is a lot of data from CV simulations and closed course testing. However, public road deployment data is needed to analyze and develop recommendations on the future roadways and operation including CV. The proposed research will be done in four phases: design, pilot, analysis, and reporting. Phase 1 will research existing technologies and implementations around the country and globally to identify possible future trends relating to CV and potential solutions that will improve Ohio's transportation system. A broad literature search will be conducted to identify best practices nationally and locally, and additional information will be collected during Ohio AV/CV interviews. Researcher will be able to propose additional items for consideration and assessment based on datasets and will report on what kind of data should be included to give ODOT the best value. The research will review existing and developing pilots and define data available; develop the pilot working plan, including planning for volunteer driver recruitment and management, and developing the pilot phase proposal. This will all be included in the task 1 report. Phases 2, 3 and 4 are Pilot, Analysis and Reporting respectively. They are part of the project scope and will be contracted and funded as an addendum (or multiple).
