Driver participants in the THEA Connected Vehicle Pilot will have equipment installed in their cars, which will “talk” to other roadside units (RSUs) through vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication. The RSUs will send a message to the connected vehicle that is entering the Reversible Express Lanes in the wrong direction. It also warns other connected vehicles that a wrong-way driver is approaching.
Driver participants in the THEA Connected Vehicle Pilot will have equipment installed in their cars, which will “talk” to other roadside units (RSUs) through vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication. The RSUs will send a message to the vehicle and recommend a safe speed based on the length of the queue ahead.
The THEA Connected Vehicle Pilot includes vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications applications, which will alert drivers of connected vehicles when another connected vehicle ahead brakes hard or when a forward collision with another connected vehicle is imminent.
Specially equipped vehicles communicate with a roadside unit (RSU) mounted on a pole on the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway’s Reversible Express Lanes (REL) during the first public demonstration of the THEA Connected Vehicle Pilot on November 13. Nearly 50 RSUs are being installed along the REL and in downtown Tampa as part of the pilot.
Attendees of the first public demonstration of the THEA Connected Vehicle Pilot saw a variety of safety alerts displayed in their vehicles’ rearview mirrors. This alert appears when the driver is at risk of a rear-end collision with another connected vehicle ahead.
Six vehicles equipped with connected vehicle technology carried more than 80 passengers in the first public demonstration of the THEA Connected Vehicle Pilot on November 13. Attendees experienced in-vehicle safety alerts along the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway’s Reversible Express Lanes, including wrong-way driving warnings and speed advisories.
