Connected Vehicle (CV) Pooled Fund Study (PFS)

The Connected Vehicle (CV) Pooled Fund Study (PFS) is a research and development program to support state and local transportation infrastructure owner operators (IOOs) in preparing for the effective deployment and operation of connected vehicle systems infrastructure and applications. The CV PFS operates as part of the Federal Highway Administration’s Transportation Pooled Fund program (https://www.pooledfund.org), with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) as the lead agency. Supporting VDOT, the University of Virginia Center for Transportation Studies serves as the administrative and technical lead of the CV PFS.


This website provides complete information about the CV PFS, current and past projects, access to products of the CV PFS that support the IOO community in CV deployment and operations, and current participation opportunities for IOOs, the private sector, and research organizations.
