|Connected and Automated Vehicles|
Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAV) have the potential to radically transform transportation. At full maturity, CAV are anticipated to provide significant safety and mobility improvements that could benefit nearly every aspect and user of the transportation system. The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) is preparing for CAV technologies by monitoring trends and advancements in automation, connected vehicles, wireless communications, and other new and emerging technologies. The CTDOT is keenly focused on a service-oriented, infrastructure-based, and multimodal approach towards the advancement of CAV that addresses both current and future (evolving) public transportation and highway transportation needs. This webpage outlines the CTDOT activities and preparations for CAV.
