Using Connected Vehicle Technologies to Solve Real-World Operational Problems

Connected vehicles are poised to transform our streets, communities, and personal lives. But before these technologies can be deployed broadly, there are a number of technical, institutional, and financial challenges — challenges that can only be understood and overcome by putting these emerging technologies to work in real-world situations, solving real problems. The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) is supporting the advancement of connected vehicle technology with a pilot deployment program that is uncovering what barriers remain and how to address them, documenting lessons learned, and serving as a template assisting other early CV technology deployments.


The USDOT has awarded cooperative agreements collectively worth more than $45 million to three pilot sites in New York City; Wyoming; and Tampa to implement a suite of connected vehicle applications and

AWS Connected Vehicle Solution architecture

When AWS IoT receives a message, it authenticates and authorizes the message and the Rules Engine executes the appropriate rule on the message, which routes the message to the appropriate backend application.

An AWS IoT rule sends telematics data to an Amazon Kinesis Firehose delivery stream, which encrypts and streams raw vehicle telematics data to an Amazon S3 bucket. If an Amazon Kinesis Analytics application detects an anomaly, the record is sent to Amazon Kinesis Streams, which invokes an AWS Lambda function that parses the record, stores it in an Amazon DynamoDB table, and triggers an Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) notification to users.

The trip data AWS IoT rule invokes an AWS Lambda function that processes vehicle telematics data during a trip and stores it in a DynamoDB table.

The driver safety score AWS IoT rule detects the end of a trip and
