FDOT District Seven Secretary Paul Steinman serves on the Automated Vehicle Steering Committee which provides oversight for the preparation and implementation of efforts to support autonomous and connected vehicles. He is an active participant in the promotion of the automated vehicle effort, speaking to groups across the state most recently at the Florida Trucking Association’s Spring Round Up. His goal is to help refine the direction of the automated vehicle initiative in Florida and use the Florida model to guide the direction of this effort at the national level.

Autonomous Truck Demonstration

Royal Trucking & Equipment Incorporated demonstrated autonomous vehicle technology embedded in a large, low speed maintenance truck for FDOT on May 21, 2015. The truck was equipped with an impact attenuator, or crash cushion, that would reduce injuries to personnel and damage to equipment if involved in a vehicle collision. Royal Trucking & Equipment Incorporated was joined by Micro Systems who created the autonomous technology.

FDOT Bridge Inspection Research Project

With the goal of improving bridge inspections, FDOT has awarded a grant to Florida Atlantic University. The goals of this project are to identify which FDOT on-water bridge inspection needs and requirements might be satisfied through use of unmanned surface vessels (USV); assess the current capabilities of USVs to determine how they may be most effectively used for bridge inspection; and provide recommendations to the FDOT for how USVs can be best used to conduct or assist in bridge inspections.

FDOT Educational Outreach

FDOT’s Automated Vehicles Initiative travels to events and conferences throughout the year to spread the word about Florida’s leadership in autonomous and connected vehicles. The Florida AV team traveled to Pittsburgh, PA, May 31-June 5, 2015 to collaborate with private partners as well as other state DOTs and USDOTs about projects involving intelligent transportation systems at the 25th Annual ITS America Meeting and Exposition. A full schedule of event appearances can be found here: automatedfl.com/events.

Connected Vehicle Incident Management

Incident zone warnings will alert drivers about disabled vehicles, car accidents, police activity and first responders ahead and warn them to slow down and change lanes. These warnings could also notify first responders and police officers of approaching vehicles. Traffic flow could also be managed with connected vehicle technology, reducing resulting congestion.

Connected Vehicle Environmental Impact

Eco-lanes, like HOV lanes, offer an alternate to highway drivers for eco-friendly cars with speed limits that conserve fuel. Vehicle to infrastructure technology could help reduce idling and unnecessary stops by communicating with smart traffic signals.

Connected Vehicle Transit
and Pedestrian Impact

Data sharing will improve safety and increase transit use. The connection protection application could help passengers communicate with public transportation in order to make better decisions about how they travel and commute. In turn, public transportation could adjust the frequency and timing of vehicles to help the greatest number of passengers. Passengers could also connect with drivers to increase ride sharing. In addition, pedestrians with disabilities can use their smart phone to communicate with traffic signals as well as warn approaching vehicles when using a cross walk.

Connected Vehicle Safety Features

Connected vehicle warnings can alert drivers if an intersection is unsafe to cross, if a vehicle on a one lane road is unsafe to pass, if a vehicle has suddenly stopped ahead of them and if there is a vehicle in their blind spot among other things. Vehicles can also communicate with smart infrastructure like trains and railroad tracks to warn drivers about an approaching train.

Road to vehicle connected technology can warn vehicles about black ice and other dangerous weather conditions ahead. This information is then sent to traffic management centers, which help the centers make decisions about adjusting speed limits, notifying maintenance crews, and broadcasting warnings to other motorists in their cars through a dashboard display, through 511 alerts, or dynamic message signs.
