Considerations in Deploying Roadside Units for Vehicle-Infrastructure Integration

Deployment of a nationwide Vehicle Infrastructure Integration program will eventually result in virtually ubiquitous coverage of most urban freeways, a large percentage of arterial, and collector streets at intersections and other key locations, and in select rural locations. Full deployment of this ubiquitous system will take a period of years, and coverage will be implemented in phases. This paper describes the factors that need to be considered in selecting locations for initial deployment. It also presents some opportunities for deployment in "high payoff" locations that advance multiple objectives, such as improved safety, traveler information, improved fleet efficiency, and commercial opportunities.
