IntelliDrive mobility & environment workshop slides available

Dec 30, 2010

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) recently held a free public meeting to review status and future plans associated with the agency’s IntelliDrive multimodal transportation research initiative. The event focused in particular on applications involving real-time data capture and management and dynamic mobility.

Note: Subsequent to the initial publication of this article, the US-DOT ceased using the name “Intellidrive” for its Connected Vehicle Research program

The DOT describes IntelliDrive as a multimodal research initiative based on wireless vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications technologies, aimed at improving traffic safety and mobility while helping the environment.
