On January 19, 2017, U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx announced new Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) guidance designed to improve safety and mobility by accelerating the deployment of V2I communication systems. The guidance complements the Department’s efforts to reduce crashes by advancing (Vehicle-to-Vehicle) V2V communication technology announced in a proposed rule in December.
FHWA developed the V2I Guidance to assist transportation system owners/operators as they deploy V2I technology. The Guidance can help transportation agencies and tollway authorities understand what a decision to deploy V2I technology could mean to their region, prepare for emerging V2I/V2V technologies and leverage federal-aid funds to deploy them.
