About the AERIS Program At the core of Federal ITS research is connected vehicle research—a multimodal initiative that aims to enable safe, interoperable networked wireless communications among vehicles, the infrastructure, and passengers’ personal communications devices. This research leverages the potentially transformative capabilities of wireless technology to make surface transportation safer, smarter, and greener. The objective of the AERIS research program is to generate and acquire environmentally-relevant realtime transportation data, and use these PO 00000 Frm 00112 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 data to create actionable information that supports and facilitates ‘‘green’’ transportation choices by transportation system users and operators. Employing a multi-modal approach, the AERIS Program will work in partnership with the vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications research efforts to better define how connected vehicle data and applications might contribute to mitigating some of the negative environmental impacts of surface transportation. About the AERIS User Needs Workshop The purpose of this workshop is to obtain stakeholder input on the Concepts of Operations (ConOps) that will be developed for the set of AERIS Transformative Concepts. Transformative Concepts are integrated operational concepts that use V2V, V2I, and other data and communications in innovative ways to operate surface transportation networks to reduce transportation-related emissions and fuel consumption. Transformative Concepts are intended to change the way surface transportation systems operate, with an emphasis on combining connected vehicle applications to provide significant environmental benefits. The AERIS Transformative Concepts include: (1) Eco-signal operations, (2) eco-lanes, (3) lowemissions zone, (4) eco-traveler information, (5) support for alternative fuel vehicle operations, and (6) ecointegrated corridor management. During this workshop, the AERIS team will facilitate interactive breakout sessions to obtain stakeholder input on desired capabilities, data needs, and modeling needs. This valuable feedback will be utilized by the USDOT to further define the Transformative Concepts and provide input into the ConOps. Input from this workshop will enable the USDOT in conducting future research and modeling to determine potential environmental benefits in a connected vehicle environment. For more information on the AERIS Program and the Transformative Concepts, visit: https://www.its.dot.gov/aeris/index.htm. Issued in Washington, DC, on the 8th day of February 2012.
