Presentation Topic: Public Digital Infrastructure Deployment for Future Mobility: Connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) can potentially improve roadway safety and mobility, and can help reduce the negative environmental impacts of surface transportation systems. However, the realization of these benefits largely depends on the integration of digital technology into the existing transportation infrastructure to support CAV operations in a cyber-physical system environment. This presentation focuses on the importance of investments in digital infrastructure on public roads alongside investments in traditional transportation infrastructure to keep up with private industry’s push towards CAVs. In addition, this presentation will highlight lessons learned from the real-world deployment of public digital infrastructure for evolving CAVs in the South Carolina Connected Vehicle Testbed (SC-CVT).
