The Arizona E- IntelliDriveSM research program is an investigation of the application of IntelliDriveSM technologies to improve the safety and efficiency of incident response and incident management activities. This project has concentrated on the development of IntelliDriveSM applications to provide intelligent emergency vehicle priority at traffic signals and ramp meters and to provide incident location information dissemination using vehicle-to-vehicle and 511 communications. Partners in the project include the Arizona Department of Transportation, Maricopa County Department of Transportation, Kimley-Horn & Associates, Arizona State University, Oz Engineering, The AzTech Partnership, Econolite, and Savari Networks.
