1 VII Day-1 Applications and MDSS Pat Kennedy Road Weather Management Program Federal Highway Administration Maintenance Decision Support System (MDSS) Annual Stakeholders Meeting August 11, 2006

2 2 VII VII (Vehicle Infrastructure Integration) is a USDOT/FHWA sponsored initiative aimed at developing and deploying a nationwide integrated communications infrastructure that supports both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications Development of Day-1 applications will be used to help define and refine what this network will look like on the first day it becomes operational

3 3 Application development Twenty “Day-1” applications have been selected for development by members of the VII Working Group and a variety of other Subject Matter Experts. Application selections were based on a number of factors: –Meeting high priority safety, mobility, and commerce needs –Need to be achievable within acceptable timeframes –Provide some early benefit to users and operators –Achievable with low penetration of VII-equipped vehicles –Providing the ability to test the system and assist the decision making process

5 5 Day-1 application #16: Winter Maintenance PURPOSE: Provide additional environmental and surface condition information to the management functions responsible for winter maintenance on our nation’s roadways GOALS: Collect environmental data from multiple vehicle sensors Process this data into MDSS, thereby: –Improving real-time surface condition information provided to transportation operators and managers –Improving the accuracy of predictive forecasts for route specific surface conditions and associated treatment recommendations

7 7 Examples of VII/MDSS generated messages to on- board maintenance vehicle displays Mobility phrases (and associated color) displays GOOD MOBILITY REDUCED MOBILITY CAUTION! SLIPPERY ROAD SURFACE DANGER! VERY SLIPPERY ROAD SURFACE Treatment phrases REDUCE NACL TO 100 LBS/LANE MILE INCREASE NACL TO 250 LBS/LANE MILE RECOMMEND ANTI-ICING OPERATIONS RECOMMEND PLOW ONLY OPERATIONS

8 8 Winter Maintenance Concept of Operations Winter Maintenance has been chosen as one of the first four Day-1 applications for which a Concept of Operations is going to be developed Tasks will include: - Developing an initial draft for stakeholder review - Conducting an initial web-meeting with stakeholders - Hosting an industry workshop - Completing a final Con Ops for Winter Maintenance Estimated completion timeframe – Jan/Feb 2007

9 9 VII Schedule & Phasing Development Phase Concept of Operations Proof of Concept Application Development Infrastructure Deployment (Phase 1) Infrastructure Deployment (Phase 2)
