The University of Florida (UF) and its Transportation Institute (UFTI), the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and the City of Gainesville (CoG) are coordinating the development of a smart testbed on the UF campus and adjoining city streets. The testbed is established to deploy and evaluate numerous advanced technologies including connected and autonomous vehicles, smart devices, and sensors, as well as to develop novel applications for their use. These technologies and their application will work within the existing network and will accommodate the presence of conventional vehicles. Industry partnerships are being sought to facilitate the development and operation of the testbed.
