Public and Private Sectors Aligned Behind V2X Deployment, 2023 a Pivotal Year - ITS America

While we are making progress toward safer streets, we still see too many preventable accidents. That’s why we joined other industry leaders in support of expanded V2X technologies, we urge the Federal Government to continue to build our national infrastructure in support of these technologies.

Today, we join together to reaffirm our continued support for the rapid, widespread deployment of vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technologies in order to further improve safety on American roads.

Women comprise only 15% of a 14.8 million transportation workforce.

Why is that important? Because the issues the transportation industry is grappling with impact women differently. This inequity is holding all of us back.

Join ITS America and our partners in our goal to increase the number of women in transportation by 10% in the next 10 years. Sign the pledge today: https://www.mobilityxx.org/

An AI that lets cars communicate might reduce traffic jams

Remember that study that General Motors and Toyota USA participated in a few weeks ago? It explored using AI driver assist to adjust speeds while taking into consideration conditions far ahead of vehicles, reducing traffic jams. Here are some results! 👇

A communication system between cars reduced 'phantom traffic jams,' and is more attainable than self-driving tech.

The Exceptionally American Problem of Rising Roadway Deaths

Other countries “moved faster in making standard in-vehicle technology like automatic braking systems that detect pedestrians... They designed roundabouts that reduce the danger at intersections, where fatalities disproportionately occur.”

We can, too.

Why other rich nations have surpassed the U.S. in protecting pedestrians, cyclists and motorists.

Is Vehicle-to-Grid Charging the Way of the Future?

“Customers will also be able to export energy from their vehicle to their home during peak hours, further offsetting electricity costs," When we say , this is what we mean! Check out this overview of V2X's sustainable potential!

Vehicle to Grid (V2G) technology on electric cars has the potential to ease the burden of peak demand times for utility companies by "donating" stored EV energy. Consumers can even make money. It's promising, but there are many challenges.

ITS technology has the potential to revolutionize our lives in ways that aren't obvious. These electric cargo trailers are just one example of how smart transportation technology might transform even the lowest-tech transportation options: walking and biking.

Nüwiel’s trailers can be pulled by a bike or a pedestrian, and can carry upwards of 400 pounds.

is a powerful tool that can save lives, like prioritizing emergency vehicles in traffic. As ITS America President and CEO, Laura Chace, says in this story, “At a time when fatalities on our roadways are at record highs, we have no time to lose.”

The law "provides many opportunities to deploy V2X and many private and public sector parties are eager to put these tools to work under IIJA programs and otherwise, but the FCC must approve the waiver requests to allow parties to deploy,”
