Tampa Expressway Authority Wins ITSA Award for Connected Vehicle Pilot

Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority advises TRN that its Connected Vehicle Pilot was named winner of the 2019 Best of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Award from the Intelligent Transportation Society of America. The pilot is “an innovative effort to deploy cutting-edge connected vehicle technology in downtown Tampa to help prevent crashes and keep traffic moving.” THEA has equipped more than 1,000 cars, 10 buses, 8 streetcars and a pedestrian crosswalk with technology that “enables vehicles to ‘talk’ to each other, traffic signals and other elements of the infrastructure.” The project is sponsored by USDOT.
