$42 Million Available for Connected Vehicle Technologies

New York City, Tampa, and Wyoming have been selected for pilot programs.

U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx announced that New York City, Wyoming, and Tampa, Fla., will receive up to $42 million for next-generation technology in infrastructure and in vehicles to share and communicate anonymous information with each other and their surroundings in real time, according to a DOT news release. The measure is expected to cut unimpaired vehicle crash rates by 80 percent.

"Today's announcement is a big step forward for the future of how we move in this country, from our rural communities to our biggest cities," he said. "It has been a core mission of the department to support promising new technologies, and through these types of smart investments we are opening the door to a safer and cleaner network and expanding how future generations travel."

New  York City will install Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) technology in 10,000 city-owned vehicles, as well as Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) technology throughout midtown, while $17 million has been awarded to Tampa in order to solve rush-hour congestion downtown and to protect pedestrians by tying the same information to their smartphones that is put in vehicles.

A focus on the efficient and safe movement of freight in Wyoming will see the state adopt V2V and V2I technology going forward.
