Feds To Test Vehicle Connect Tech In New York Fleets

Posted on November 4, 2015


New York City will install vehicle-to-vehicle technology in 10,000 buses, taxis, limousines, and city fleet vehicles as part of a $23 million federally funded initiative designed to reduce future congestion and greenhouse gas emissions.

The 10,000 vehicles would include MTA buses, city DOT vehicles, NYTLC-licensed vehicles, and commercial trucks. About 7,500 taxis, 1,500 buses, 500 city vehicles, and 500 commercial vehicles will participate in the pilot and share anonymous data on speed, location and braking from other vehicles, as well as pedestrian walking and the delivering warning messages from other vehicles.
