THEA CV Pilot Announces a WORLD FIRST Using Connected Vehicle Technology

Our agency spearheaded the THEA Connected Vehicle Pilot aiming to improve traffic safety for vehicles and pedestrians and also decrease the commute time in Tampa’s Central Business District. Tampa was the first out of three cities to deploy the pilot and the only one to deliver on time to the USDOT. We are now moving into Phase 2 and excited to announce a WORLD FIRST to make driving safer using connected vehicle technology. Our Director of Planning and Innovation, Bob Frey, sits down with Bay News 9 to share how this technology will shape the future of driving and put Tampa on the map for smart city innovation.
