Connected and Automated Vehicle (CAV) Readiness Study
A Quick Study – Planning for the Arrival of Connected and Automated Vehicles
In the not too distant future, connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) will arrive and share public roads throughout Central Florida. To prepare for their introduction and adoption, Global-5 hosted public involvement workshops for MetroPlan Orlando to evaluate what this may mean for the region’s roads and transit agencies, and also to provide a CAV knowledge base for increasing MetroPlan Orlando’s planning expertise.

After completing a pair of technical memorandums to assess the readiness in Central Florida for the arrival of connected and automated vehicles (CAVs), MetroPlan Orlando needed to host a series of events to collect public input for developing recommendations to prepare Central Florida for the future integration of CAVs on public roads.
WORKSHOPS ARE ENGAGING
Global-5 planned, developed presentation materials and hosted CAV Readiness Workshops in Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties to provide information about CAV policies, increase awareness of MetroPlan Orlando’s role in CAV planning and survey attendees.
Global-5 wrote articles for MetroPlan Orlando’s eNewsletter about a pair of CAV Readiness reports. The first analyzed the current state of the CAV industry in Florida and nationwide. The second evaluated existing CAV capabilities of local municipal and county governments.
SOCIAL MEDIA OUTREACH
Global-5 developed lists of key stakeholders for MetroPlan Orlando to contact with invitations to the CAV Readiness Workshops. Global-5 also wrote social media posts for MetroPlan Orlando’s social media networks to promote the workshops.
