THEA Connected Vehicle Pilot

Since September 2015, the Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA) has been working with the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) as a Connected Vehicle (CV) Pilot site. The THEA CV Pilot was the only program in the country implementing real-time, Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I), and Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) communications.

The CV Pilot was so successful that the USDOT has asked THEA to continue on to the next phase in the Connected Vehicle space and begin working with the auto industry manufacturers. THEA is proud to announce that it is collaborating with Honda R&D Americas, LLC, Hyundai America Technical Center, Inc. and Toyota Motor North America to deploy vehicles with connected vehicle technology already installed. Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEMs) vehicles and hardware provide the next evolution of delivering safer transportation.

Over the course of the pilot, 21 potential pedestrian crashes were prevented, 19 Red Light Violation warnings were delivered, 17 potential vehicle collisions were avoided, 14 wrong-way drivers were alerted, and over 20,000 safety advisories were issued.
