Revolutionizing Road Safety with V2X Technology: Verizon Public Sector’s Award-Winning Pilot Program with ADOT and MAG in Arizona

Verizon Public Sector recently received a Transportation Systems Management and Operations (TSMO) Award in the Emerging Trends and Technologies category for its pilot program with the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) and the Maricopa Association of Governments. The pilot program tested a new vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technology in Maricopa County, Arizona, demonstrating the potential of V2X technology to revolutionize how state and local governments communicate with drivers nationwide.

Susan Anderson, Systems Technology Group Manager for ADOT’s Transportation Systems Management and Operations division, said that the goal of the pilot project was to test and validate the ability to send critical safety notices to drivers efficiently. This initiative helped prepare for a future where vehicles can interact with transportation infrastructure seamlessly. During the pilot program, Verizon Public Sector virtualized ADOT’s roadside units (RSUs) and utilized public Multi-access Edge Compute (MEC) infrastructure to enhance the communication of timely traffic information to drivers.

The award signifies that V2X technology is viable and has significant potential to improve transportation systems. TJ Fox, Senior Vice President of Industrial IoT and Automotive at Verizon Business, expressed excitement about the recognition received by the pilot program. He stated that it demonstrates how V2X technology can be used to deliver time-sensitive safety information between vehicles on interstate and state highway systems.
