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.
