Iteris is to develop a connected vehicle (CV) data exchange platform that will allow the Florida Department of Transportation (FDoT) to analyse real-time road conditions. 

The platform will also allow the department to communicate critical travel information to the travelling public, state and local government entities and private-sector partners.

Iteris says the project is among the first in the US to develop a Vehicle to Everything (V2X) data exchange, capturing data from thousands of devices across connected and automated vehicle (C/AV) and smart mobility infrastructure networks. 

A key objective of the project is to standardise the collection, analysis and sharing of data from several proprietary systems, which have different coding and encryption methodologies, and to make additional considerations for privacy and safety.

The exchange will capture anonymous data both from standardised onboard units (OBU) communicating directly with FDoT-owned roadside units (RSU) and from the proprietary data feeds of various car manufacturers. This connected vehicle data will be fused with a breadth of other data both from FDoT-owned infrastructure and third-party data feeds. 

According to Iteris, this stream of enriched data will be the basis for real-time and historic analysis, leveraging a combination of machine learning and traditional algorithms.

Anita Vandervalk, vice president, strategic business development at Iteris, says: “The V2X data exchange will enable FDoT to communicate critical travel information to the travelling public, state and local government entities, private-sector partners and other stakeholders.”

Project partner Ford Mobility will supply V2X data from its connected vehicle platform. Other participants include Florida International University, Amazon Web Services and Google.
