RSU Standardization

The Institute of Transportation Engineers is developing a non-proprietary, industry-based consensus RSU standard that supports interoperability for state and local infrastructure owner/operators and the ability to connect to OEM’s and other users of RSU messages. This effort involves engaging with Stakeholders representing the industry at large including but not limited to Infrastructure, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM’S), RSU manufacturers and the end users of data and services and is supported by the USDOT ITS Joint Program Office (JPO). Several associations such as Society of Automobile Engineers (SAE), American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO), National Electrical Manufacturers Associations (NEMA) and ITE are involved in ensuring balanced and effective stakeholder representation and adherence to Standards Development Process as Standards Development Organizations (SDO)

The goal of this work is to support the overall ITS JPO effort to provide personnel/working group with the key experience relevant to either the development and/or deployment of RSUs.  This would include infrastructure owner operators, and their vendors that have participated in RSU deployments such as Connected Vehicle Pilots projects and the Signal Phase and Timing Challenge.

We welcome stakeholders who are interested in receiving information about the project and to participate in the standard development process. Please email us to be included in the project updates communications at
