Connected vehicle technologies are joining the transportation system in Texas' capital city to improve safety and communication with drivers.

Five intersections in Austin have been upgraded with dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) technology. The city will launch two more similar projects next year. The projects are part of Austin’s participation in the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Signal Phasing and Timing (SPaT) Challenge through the National Operations Center of Excellence, a partnership among transportation-related associations and government agencies to offer assistance with transportation technologies.

The technology, which was funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation, was supplied by Battelle, a private nonprofit applied research and technology center based in Columbus, Ohio. The project is part of the federal Connected Vehicle Reference Implementation Architecture project, commonly known as the V2I (vehicle-to-infrastructure) Hub.
