|Project Name:||Traffic Optimization for Signalized Corridors (TOSCo) Phase 1 Project|
|Project Team:||Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) Consortium|
|Timeframe:||April 2015 – June 2019|
The project addresses near-term research needs on the Eco-Signal application development roadmap established by the Applications for the Environment: Real-Time Information Synthesis (AERIS) Planning Study. The overall Traffic Optimization for Signalized Corridors (TOSCo) Project selects specific existing traffic corridors as potential TOSCo deployment sites, model the overall operating environment and develop a system design using a simulation environment to evaluate potential benefits and risks.
TOSCo directly supports the two primary strategic priorities of USDOT’s Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Strategic Plan , Realizing Connected Vehicle (CV) Implementation and Advancing Automation, addressing the program themes of enhancing mobility, limiting environmental impacts and promoting innovation by leveraging emerging connected automated vehicle (CAV) capabilities.
