Ga. DOT Preps for Advanced Technology
Feb. 13, 2020—The Georgia Department of Transportation is preparing for the age of intelligent transportation systems such as connected vehicle technology, per a report from Transportation Today.
GDOT officials announced the imminent release of a request for proposals from private sector partners to provide a connected vehicle solution.
The request follows the state’s recently announced Regional Connected Vehicle partnership between GDOT and the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) to connect an additional 1,000 locations with connected vehicle technology. There are currently more than 400 locations across metro Atlanta utilizing the innovation.
Connected vehicle technology involves dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) or cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technology.
