The U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) is planning to host two public workshops to discuss the integration of details of connected-vehicle capabilities into the National Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Architecture.
The workshops will cover National ITS Architecture, version 7.1 integration with the Connected Vehicle Reference Implementation Architecture into ARC-IT Version 8.0.
“ARC-IT provides a unifying framework that covers ITS comprehensively, including connected vehicle and traditional infrastructure ITS capabilities,” U.S. DOT reports.
U.S. DOT says the ITS Architecture offers a consistent framework to guide the planning and deployment of ITS and connected-vehicle technologies.
During the workshop, U.S. DOT will seek stakeholder feedback on the content and usability of the next-generation ITS Architecture. This workshop will also illustrate how ARC-IT relates to the National ITS Architecture, Version 7.1, and the CVRIA; describe the tools (what they are, what they are used for, and who should use them in planning for deployment); and describe how ARC-IT fits into the deployment process.
