  • Abstract:
    This white paper examines the available quantitative information on the potential mobility benefits of the connected vehicle Dynamic Mobility Applications (DMA). This work will be refined as more and better estimates of benefits from mobility applications emerge.

    The set of mobility applications provide more than just mobility benefits. They also have the potential to generate energy benefits (e.g., decrease in fuel consumption), environmental benefits (e.g., decrease in greenhouse gases (GHGs), and air pollutant emissions) and safety benefits (e.g., decrease in number and severity of primary and secondary crashes, reduced incident response time). This white paper, however, focusses on mobility benefits.

    The results of the analysis show that the high priority Dynamic Mobility Applications will reduce congestion while simultaneously increasing safety and benefiting the environment. Based on the limited data currently available from modeling and field trials of similar applications, full deployment of the set of mobility applications may be capable of eliminating more than 1/3rd of the travel delay that is caused by congestion.

    The Freight Advanced Traveler Information Systems (FRATIS) bundle of applications can provide significant improvements in freight travel times (approximately 20% in the one available study), as well as significantly reducing the total number of truck movements (which also reduces overall congestion) as well as other benefits.
