Connected Vehicle Solutions

Research, application and system development. 

The future of transportation is here. And Battelle is leading the way. Wireless technology similar to that used every day to stay connected to email and social networks is being employed to improve the safety, mobility and environmental impact of ground travel to and from your daily destinations.

For over a decade, Battelle has been transforming the transportation landscape through the development and testing of systems and applications for vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure connectivity.

What are the benefits?

  • Reduced crash rates, injuries and deaths
  • Traffic, weather and emergency warnings
  • Route planning for optimal driving and fuel efficiency
  • Reduced impact to the environment


Battelle: A proven leader

For more than 10 years, Battelle has been trusted as the lead in development and deployment of numerous large-scale research, network and security work and application development projects with the U.S. Department of Transportation, NHSTA and local authorities including:  

  • Transit Safety Retrofit Package: The successful demonstration of busses retrofit with a suite of general vehicle-to-vehicle safety applications and Battelle-developed transit-specific safety applications as part of the Safety Pilot Deployment in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

  • Integrated Dynamic Transit Operations (IDTO): Implemented and deployed a Connect and Ride system in Central Ohio, and then Central Florida, which demonstrated the integration of multiple transportation modes and service offerings to support local commutes – including traditional transit offerings, as well as rideshare and dynamic demand response providers.

  • Intelligent Network Flow Optimization (INFLO): A Battelle-led prototype project implemented mobile devices supporting DSRC and cellular connections to enable communication of speed harmonization and queue warning information between vehicles and traffic management centers. Demonstrated in controlled environments in Columbus, Ohio and Seattle, Washington.

  • R.E.S.C.U.M.E.: Program named for response, emergency staging, communications, uniform management and evacuation piloted in Columbus, Ohio and Sykesville, Maryland utilized a dynamic mobility application bundle to demonstrate support for first responders by making incident scene information readily available.

  • Signal Phase and Timing and the Integrated V2I Prototype: Projects focused on designing and testing the enabling technologies necessary to communicate signal phase and timing information from traffic signal controllers to vehicles in a connected vehicle environment.
