Drivers of connected vehicles on the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway’s Reversible Express Lanes will receive warnings when cars on the road ahead have suddenly slowed down or come to a stop.

Participating drivers will receive alerts if they are approaching the downtown end of the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway’s Reversible Express Lanes at an unsafe speed.

Connected vehicle technology will be installed at the midblock crosswalk on East Twiggs Street at the Hillsborough County Courthouse to improve pedestrian safety. When sensors detect a pedestrian, roadside equipment will broadcast that information to connected vehicles in the vicinity, and their drivers will receive an alert.

INFOGRAPHICS

The Vehicle Turning Right in Front of Bus application warns a bus driver when a vehicle attempts to turn right in front of the bus as the bus pulls away from a stop. In Tampa, a similar application (Vehicle Turning Right in Front of Transit Vehicle) will deliver safety messages to TECO Line streetcar operators and Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART) bus drivers on certain routes to help prevent crashes.

The Pedestrian in Signalized Crosswalk application warns the driver of a connected vehicle when a pedestrian is crossing the street in the projected path of the vehicle. The Tampa Connected Vehicle Pilot is adapting this application to improve pedestrian safety at the midblock crosswalk on Twiggs Street near the Hillsborough County Courthouse.

The Intersection Movement Assist application warns the driver of a connected vehicle if it is not safe to enter an intersection—for example, if another vehicle is running a red light or making a sudden turn. The Tampa Connected Vehicle Pilot is deploying this application at many downtown intersections.”
