Preparing Oregon for connected and automated vehicles
automated vehicles present the possibility of profound change in the field of
transportation. In order to prepare for these changes, ODOT has worked to
identify connected vehicle applications with the greatest benefit to Oregon,
and identify how the department can prepare for emerging technologies. ODOT has
developed a strategic framework for the department’s connected and automated
vehicle work, created a steering team, and hired a connected, automated and
electric vehicles advisor to advise department policymaking.
