Connected Vehicles

For more than 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.

Connected vehicles use wireless technology to improve the safety, mobility and environmental impact of ground travel to and from your daily destinations. 


Battelle offers a unique single-source solution for connected vehicle system integration. Comprehensive in-vehicle, infrastructure, data capture and data processing systems reduce ramp-up time and project complexity.

Features include:
  • In-vehicle hardware system takes only 10 minutes to install
  • Rapidly deployable Dedicated Short-Range Communications (DSRC) infrastructure
  • Competitive suite of deployment ready applications
  • Scalable cloud-based data collection and processing
  • Open platform Transportation Message Exchange (TMX) software


Battelle has led 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 buses retrofit with a suite of general vehicle-to-vehicle safety applications and Battelle-developed transit-specific safety applications as part of a 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.

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 that 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.


Our connected vehicles efforts will provide:
  • Reduced crash rates, injuries and deaths
  • Traffic, weather and emergency warnings
  • Route planning for optimal driving and fuel efficiency
  • Reduced impact to the environment

Whether cultivating the next generation of automotive information system and cybersecurity engineers through the SAE Battelle CyberAuto Challenge or developing new applications to detect vehicle cyber-attacks, Battelle is helping usher in the future of transportation technology.
