What is VII California?
VII California is a public-private partnership spearheaded by Caltrans and
MTC to understand Vehicle-Infrastructure Integration, which will allow us to:
What's next? The VII California Testbed.
- Better manage the safety and productivity of the surface
- Combine the resources, research, and innovations of the public
sector, the auto industry, aftermarket suppliers, and other private sector
participants for the benefit of the traveling public;
- Build upon California's already considerable existing infrastructure
- Create opportunities for innovation in the transportation system, and
explore commercial uses of the system to fund its deployment and operation.
The VII California partners believe that while VII goals are achievable,
before the California partners or the nation can commit the financial
resources and support any companion legislative actions, there needs to be
evidence of the feasibility and value of VII. This evidence should be
based on a combination of field testing and off-line simulation work. The
field testing results should be made available in timely fashion to inform
national program decision milestones.
Can you tell us more?
What is the opportunity for partnership?
A Call for Submissions workshop on Monday, 24 April, in Oakland, California
will allow prospective partners to understand VII California, and, we hope,
join our effort.
