The Tampa-Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA) has partnered with Savari and Brandmotion to create a vehicle-to-everything infrastructure pilot program to help ease commuting and make it safer for everyone — including pedestrians.
In addition, 500 pedestrians will have an app on their phones that enables vehicle-to-pedestrian (V2P) communications and warnings.
And there will be roadside units at 40 intersections for the pilot program providing vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications.
Tampa is an interesting place for this pilot program as it has reversible express lanes that can flow either way, depending on the direction of heavy traffic.
Savari says in trials conducted by the Department of Transportation (where Savari provided much of the connected car technology), V2V technology alone was predicted to prevent 80 percent of traffic accidents.
