Impacts of Connected Vehicles and Automated Vehicles on State and Local Transportation Agencies--Task-Order Support. C/AV Applications for IOO Fleets

C/AV technologies offer potential benefits to improve the safety, efficiency, and reliability of people and goods movement. The current AASHTO Fleet Challenge demonstrates the States’ commitment to using connected vehicle technologies and the 5.9Ghz spectrum. Additional automated vehicle applications can be envisioned for infrastructure owner-operators (IOOs) fleets. Among the most obvious are C/AV transit applications for transit priority, AV first-mile, last-mile shuttles or circulator systems, and automated crash abatement vehicles for work zones. Short-staffed Infrastructure Owner-Operators (IOOs) may find significant benefits in automation of certain manually performed tasks, not just in the transportation department, but across public agency services such as emergency services and public utilities. This project will explore the possible applications of connected and automated vehicle technologies to improve IOO services and business process efficiency.
