Intelligent Transportation Systems Research Data Exchange - Vehicle Data from Orlando, FL - Vehicle Awareness Device Data (csv)

Metadata Updated: May 23, 2017

Florida DOT (FDOT) installed Vehicle Awareness Devices (VADs) on a set of Lynx transit buses as part of a demonstration for the ITS World Congress held in Orlando in October 2011. These VADs recorded vehicle data during the World Congress and continue to operate after the World Congress. Periodically the VADs are removed from the vehicles and the data files are retrieved. FHWA Has confirmed that the data do not contain identification of individual transit operators or any other forms for Personally Identifiable Information (PII). The data files on the RDE were collected in September and October 2011. The total size of the data environment is 696 MB.
