Wyoming DOT holds Connected Vehicle Pilot showcase event

The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) has conducted an Operational Capability Showcase to demonstrate its recent developments as part of the US Department of Transportation’s (USDOT) Connected Vehicle Pilot program.

Attended by the media, members of the Wyoming Trucking Association, WYDOT pilot partners, other interested stakeholders and USDOT representatives, the showcase was an opportunity for the agency to share the recent progress and intent of the WYDOT Connected Vehicle Pilot and its value to travelers on I-80 in southern Wyoming. The CV Pilot team’s presentation described the project’s background, impetus, overall system capabilities and next steps for deployment. This will include information from connected vehicles that will be integrated with data from other sources at the WYDOT Transportation Management Center (TMC), providing timelier and increased situational awareness to benefit all travelers on the 402 miles (647km) of I-80.
