As a part of solutions to reduce problems associated with transportation in cities, technologies can have noticeable impacts. Due to efficiency and low costs, innovative transportation technologies can reshape and improve human’s transportation. This research aims to explore Vehicle-to-Infrastructure communication technology (V2I) and its benefits to safety, mobility, and environment. In addition, it explores the planning aspect of deploying V2I technology and its opportunities, challenges and concerns, and implication to communities. The research will also look at several case studies including pilot projects that have been taking place in the United States and studies that have been done to have a better understanding of the current situation of V2I technology and its future needs.
