TÜV Rheinland to Support U.S. DOT Connected Vehicle Research Program

TÜV Rheinland's Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) group, together with Booz Allen Hamilton, Inc., will support the U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office's (ITS JPO) work to harmonize international ITS standards for Connected Vehicle technology.

Specifically, TÜV Rheinland will bring to the U.S. DOT European experiences and perspectives on the development and harmonization of international Connected Vehicle standards. The standards address technologies that help build a strong and interconnected global transportation network, including vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-infrastructure and other Intelligent Transportation communication equipment. The company will also compare the work performed by the EU and United States on the standards development and review vendor information.

U.S. DOT selected the Booz Allen Hamilton and TÜV Rheinland team due to their advanced technical capabilities. Additionally, Booz Allen Hamilton has extensive experience in development and deployment of international standards.

In addition to the harmonization of international transportation standards, U.S. DOT ITS Joint Program Office's goals include improved safety and mobility in surface transportation. To learn more about the U.S. DOT Connected Vehicle Program, please visit www.its.dot.gov.
