Virtual Open Innovation Collaborative Environment for Safety (VOICES) Proof of Concept (PoC)

VOICES PoC will be a distributed virtual platform that will enable stakeholder virtual collaboration among participating entities (public sector including State and local governments, private sector, and academic institutions) in an intellectual property-protected virtual collaborative environment for research and interoperability testing of prototype CDA applications (VOICES Research Hub reference).

As the first use case, the VOICES PoC will focus on CDA, research, and interoperability-distributed testing of Cooperative Automated Driving Systems applications as defined by SAE J3216: Taxonomy and Definitions for Terms Related to Cooperative Driving Automation for On-Road Motor Vehicles.
