Connected Vehicles - New York


NYC Connected Vehicle Pilot

The NYC Connected Vehicle Pilot aims to improve the safety of travelers and pedestrians through the deployment of V2V and V2I connected vehicle technologies. This objective directly aligns with the city’s Vision Zero initiative.

Safety is the major driver of this program. One of the major ongoing initiatives has been the citywide speed limit reduction from 30 miles per hour to 25 miles per hour (mph). According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), speeding was a factor in more than one in four deaths.

Human factors were the critical cause in about 94% of all crashes while vehicle-related factors applied only to about 2% of all crashes. In Manhattan, 73% of all crash fatalities involved pedestrians compared to 14% nationwide.

Network Technology-Dedicated Short-Range Communication (DSRC)

- Area #1= 8 RSUs along the higher-speed FDR Drive to address challenges such as short-radius curves, weight limits and a minimum bridge clearance.

-Area #2= 281 RSU’s at 281 signalized intersections for vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) technology.

-Area #3= 28 RSU’s at 28 signalized intersections for vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) technology.

-Other Area’s= 36 RSUs at Strategic locations throughout the City (Tunnels, Bridges, Airports and Garages) to support system management functions.
