Description:
The Connected Vehicle program is a large set of research activities centered around a vehicle or a mobile device that is equipped with communications and processing allowing those equipped platforms to be aware of their location and their status and to communicate with each other and with the surrounding infrastructure. This enables Cooperative Intelligent Transportation Systems (C‐ITS) or, as commonly known in the US, “connected vehicle”.
