a Automated vehicles are those in which at least some aspect of a safety-critical control function (e.g., steering, throttle, or braking) occurs without direct driver input. Automated vehicles may be autonomous (i.e., use only vehicle sensors) or may be connected (i.e., use communications systems such as connected vehicle technology, in which cars and roadside infrastructure communicate wirelessly). Connectivity is an important input to realizing the full potential benefits and broad-scale implementation of automated vehicles......

a1 Academia, industry, and government have been developing systems that simultaneously improve automotive safety and highway capacity for over 30 years. One approach toward improving vehicle safety incorporates sensors and computers that assume control over a vehicle, either in part or in whole. Connected vehicles can communicate with other vehicles and/or transportation infrastructure (e.g. traffic signals).....

a2 In December 2015,  we  launched  our  Smart  City  Challenge,  asking  mid-sized cities across America to develop ideas for an integrated, first-of-its-kind smart transportation system that would use data, applications, and technology to help people and goods move more quickly, cheaply, and efficiently. The Challenge generated an overwhelming response: 78 applicant cities shared the challenges they face and ideas for how to tackle them. Then, our seven finalists worked with DOT to further develop their ideas.  USDOT Smart City Challenge
