Connected Vehicle Research Program Public Meeting; Notice of 
Public Meeting

AGENCY: ITS Joint Program Office, Research and Innovative Technology 
Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation.

ACTION: Notice.


    The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Intelligent 
Transportation System Joint Program Office (ITS JPO) will host a public 
meeting seeking stakeholder input and public sector guidance to the 
Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Research and Innovative 
Technology Administration (RITA) Connected Vehicle Systems. The meeting 
will take place Thursday, January 16, 2014, from 1:00 p.m. (EST) to 
4:00 p.m. (EST) in the Hampton Room at the Omni Shoreham Hotel, 2500 
Calvert Street, NW in Washington, DC. Remote participation will be 
available via webinar. Persons planning to attend the meeting or 
participate in the webinar should register online at www.itsa.org/policy2014.
    The USDOT would like input from transportation infrastructure 
owner/operators on their needs for guidelines, tools, resources, and 
policies that will support the successful implementation and operations 
of connected vehicle technologies. The primary target audience for the 
meeting is State and local Departments of Transportation, transit 
operators, other operating agencies, and infrastructure owners who are 
starting to plan for the deployment and use of connected vehicle 
technologies in their area. While the meeting is specifically focused 
for an audience that has followed connected vehicle research and is 
formulating plans for implementation, it is open to other stakeholders 
in the connected vehicle community, including national associations and 
the general public.
    Attendees will be asked to discuss their needs for guidelines, 
tools, and resources to best support their decisions and deployments. 
Attendees will also be asked to identify anticipated institutional 
challenges. The results of the meeting will be used as input for FHWA's 
development of Connected Vehicle guidance that is expected in 2015 and 
will also inform the Federal Transit Administration.
    For more information, please contact Robert Arnold, FHWA, Director, 
Office of Transportation Management at [email protected] or by 
telephone at 202-366-1285. Agenda items for the meeting are subject to 
change. Meeting information will be posted to the Web site http://www.its.dot.gov/.

     Issued in Washington, DC, on the 19th day of December 2013.
