US DOT Training: Connected Vehicle Reference Implementation Architecture Overview

Monday, April 20
1:30 -5:30 pm
Room 311A

Walton Fehr, Systems Engineering and Test Bed Manager, ITS Joint Program Office, U.S. Department of Transportation

This half-day session will provide an overview of the U.S. Department of Transportation ITS Joint Program Office (JPO) Connected Vehicle Reference Implementation Architecture (CVRIA). The architecture identifies the key interfaces of a connected vehicle environment that will enable the identification and prioritization of standards needed to support connected vehicle implementation.

This session will also provide information on the JPO's Connected Vehicle Test Bed (known as the Southeast Michigan Test Bed) in Oakland Country, Michigan. The Southeast Michigan Test Bed is a federally-funded resource available to developers to test how connected vehicle technologies will perform under real-world operating conditions. In recent years, the test bed has undergone numerous enhancements; including geographical expansion and technical and architectural updates, designed to support the connected vehicle industry's evolving needs for a testing and development environment.
