Intelligent Vehicle Systems

Intelligent vehicle systems are technologies that communicate safety and road condition information to drivers to enhance mobility and safety. These systems include “vehicle to vehicle (V2V) communications” (examples include a warning prior to a rear end collision or a warning that vehicles ahead of you are slowing down) and “vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) communication” (examples include traffic signal phasing information, weather information, and parking management). Most intelligent vehicle systems are still in the conceptual phase, and resources have primarily focused on urban areas; however, a few selected projects are beginning to be tested and deployed in rural areas.

This section provides resources on intelligent vehicle systems in general, as well as any rural resources that are currently available.
