Parsons Brinckerhoff has been selected to design and supervise deployment of technology infrastructure for a U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) pilot program to study the potential of operating connected vehicles on the streets and highways of Ann Arbor, Mich.
Called the Connected Vehicle Safety Pilot Model Deployment project, the $15 million research effort is being undertaken by the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) and its partners on behalf of the U.S. DOT. The program will deploy connected vehicle technologies in Ann Arbor and data from the model deployment will be used by the U.S.DOT to evaluate the potential for this technology to revolutionize automobile safety.
