Connected vehicle environment

Connected vehicle environment

During this pilot program, devices called “on-board units” will be installed on public and private vehicles to allow vehicles to talk to each other and receive in-car alerts like blind spot detection or rear end collision warning. The on-board units also allow vehicles to talk to traffic signals and other roadway infrastructure to provide in-car alerts like red light violation warning. The alerts will give drivers advanced warning of potential hazards or safety concerns so they can slow down or take other precautionary measures. Traffic managers will be able to adjust traffic light timing and mobilize other responses like snow and salt trucks based on real-time information on road conditions relayed by the units.
