IntelliDriveSM Initiatives in Michigan: Leading the States Forward

Full Description:

The United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) has launched a national program to enhance vehicle transportation through the applications of communication technologies. This program, known as IntelliDriveSM (succeeding the USDOT’s VII, for Vehicle-Infrastructure Integration, program), targets safety, mobility, and environmental improvements through a combination of vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications. Already, these technologies have been demonstrated in the State of Michigan and elsewhere. Led by the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), Michigan has committed itself to playing a leadership role within the overall national IntelliDriveSM effort. IntelliDriveSM allows vehicles to communicate with each other and the roadway to enhance situational awareness and ultimately enable cooperative, active safety systems. Rather than defining a specific technological solution, IntelliDriveSM consists of multiple in-vehicle and roadside communication technologies, along with data processing and applications, that enable vehicles to obtain and share information with each other and the world, including transportation infrastructure operators. Thus, IntelliDriveSM leverages existing 3G, 4G, and other communication networks where and when they make sense (such as for mobility applications).
