Roadmap to the Future of the Automotive State
Over the course of multiple project engagements, WSP has assisted MDOT with strategic, programmatic, planning and deployment activities across the state, including:
Strategic/Programmatic Support: As part of an on-call technical services project with MDOT’s intelligent transportation systems (ITS) program office, WSP developed the department’s C/AV Strategic Plan, established guidelines for connected vehicle infrastructure design and deployment, and prepared concepts of operations for multiple high-priority vehicle-to-infrastructure applications.
Planning and Deployment Support: Through multiple deployment projects, WSP has helped to deploy CV infrastructure throughout southeast Michigan, including infrastructure for the 2014 ITS World Congress in Detroit, regional deployments along I-96, and deployment along I-69 to support a truck platooning demonstration. In addition, we conducted a regional deployment plan which considered locations supportive of high-priority applications, and developed a concept of operations for the Woodward Avenue corridor, looking to connected vehicle technologies to support enhanced bus and streetcar operations.
