How Tampa Was First to Launch an Ambitious Connected Vehicle Deployment for USDOT

SUMMARY

Tampa was one of three sites in the nation to be selected for the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program — a program that seeks to spur innovation of connected vehicle applications.  The Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA) wanted to determine if connected vehicle technology could play a major role in reducing collisions and improving traffic flow during peak hours in the areas that transition from expressway to surface streets. They assembled an implementation team that included Brandmotion Solutions to improve traffic safety for vehicles and pedestrians, and to decrease the commute time in Tampa’s Central Business District (CBD).

Results That Speak for Themselves

Our latest case study shows how Brandmotion led the integration and installation of vehicle-side onboard units. Through our efforts, Tampa was the first city in the DOT study to launch vehicle deployment. In this case study you’ll discover: 

  • The key ingredients that made the Tampa project successful
  • New technological solutions that provided critical driver feedback
  • The depth of expertise Brandmotion Solutions introduced to the project

“We needed a company that could think on their feet, work with us and avoid potential pitfalls before we got there. Brandmotion played a big part in getting [the project] done. We did stuff that’s never been done before.” — Bob Frey, project manager for the CV pilot at Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA).
