USDOT/CAMP Connected Vehicle Technology Demonstration Planned for 18th World Congress

The United States Department of Transportation (U.S.DOT) has partnered with the Crash Avoidance Metrics Partnership (CAMP) Vehicle Safety Communications 3 (VSC3) Consortium to research develop and test Connected Vehicle Cooperative Safety Systems using 5.9 GHz Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) to enable vehicle active safety systems that may help drivers avoid crashes. 
These safety applications will be on review at the Walt Disney World® SPEEDWAY during the 18th Intelligent Transportation Systems World Congress Technology Showcase October 16-20 in Orlando. Participants will ride in the vehicles and experience the effectiveness of the safety applications in various potential crash scenarios. The vehicles used will be part of the actual test fleet that will participate in the U.S.DOT Safety Pilot program. The objective of the demonstration is to show how V2V interoperability among vehicles from different automotive manufacturers can allow cars to communicate and understand each other. These connected vehicle safety systems may help drivers avoid crashes regardless of vehicle make model or type.

In addition to the V2V safety applications shown in the CAMP VSC3 vehicles a stationary and V2V-equipped Class 8 heavy truck will also be part of the review. To participate in this demonstration attendees should register in advance here.
