NOI: Traveler Response Architecture using Novel Signaling for Network Efficiency in Transportation (TRANSNET)*

Sponsor:           U.S. Department of Energy - Advanced Research Projects Agency Energy

Deadlines:         Final: None*

Summary:          ARPA-E intends to issue a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled Traveler Response Architecture using Novel Signaling for Network Efficiency in Transportation (TRANSNET). This FOA will solicit applications to pursue innovative research targeted at minimizing energy consumption in a surface transportation network through control mechanisms that utilize personalized signals directed at individual travelers. The FOA will provide specific program goals, technical metrics, and selection criteria and the FOA terms are controlling. For purposes of the Teaming Partner List, the following summarizes current planning for the FOA: The overall objective of the TRANSNET program is to reduce energy use in a multi-modal, urban transportation network through network control mechanisms employing personalized signaling. Currently, ARPA-E anticipates that the FOA will target research and development of technologies that employ simulation and develop control architectures to generate energy saving through network optimization.

Category:          Clean and Renewable Energy; Miscellaneous

Keywords:         urban transportation, energy efficiency, signaling, simulation and controls, network optimization
