Verizon Public Sector in partnership with the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) and the Maricopa Association of Governments announced the success of its pilot program that tested new vehicle-to-all (V2X) technology in Maricopa County, Arizona. The program was awarded a Transportation Systems Management and Operations (TSMO) Award in the Emerging Trends and Technologies category, showcasing the potential of V2X technology to revolutionize communication between state and local governments and drivers across the country.

Susan Anderson, Systems Technology Group Manager for ADOT’s Transportation Systems Management and Operations Division, emphasized the importance of positioning for integrating V2X technology into transportation systems. The pilot program virtualized ADOT’s roadside units and leveraged public multi-access Edge Compute (MEC) infrastructure to optimize the communication of timely traffic information to drivers.

The pilot program took place from December 2021 to May 2022 and demonstrated the potential of V2X technology to improve road safety by delivering time-sensitive safety information between vehicles on Arizona’s interstate and state highway systems. TJ Fox, Senior Vice President of Industrial IoT and Automotive at Verizon Business, expressed his excitement about the TSMO award and its significance in showcasing V2X technology’s ability to improve communication between vehicles and transport infrastructure.
