Connected Vehicles for Municipal Vehicular Fleets: Applications & Testing Framework

The goal of this study is to explore aspects of connected vehicle (CV) technologies that can be implemented for the municipal fleet in New York City. The CV benefits intended to be realized in the NYC CV pilots are vehicular and pedestrian safety. CV apps included in the NYC CV pilot will be tested against the crash types and potentially dangerous scenarios involved by NYC fleet vehicles. These apps will be evaluated for their effectiveness using the NYC CV pilot simulation testbed built as a part of a previous study. Various benefits, including safety, environmental and financial, for these apps will be projected to scale up to the fleet along other long-term considerations including potential alternatives and recommendations on adoption of technologies will be made. The benefits quantification can help NYC fleet in expanding their CV deployment and also other agencies in their adoption.
