The U.S. Department of Transportation’s (U.S. DOT) Work Zone Data Exchange (WZDx) project aims to make travel on public roads safer and more efficient through ubiquitous access to data on work zone activity. Up-to-date information about dynamic conditions occurring on roads – such as construction events – can help automated driving systems (ADS) and humans navigate safely and efficiently.
Inspired by the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS), U.S. DOT launched WZDx in March 2018 to jumpstart the voluntary adoption of a basic work zone data specification through collaboration with data producers and users. This webinar will provide a deeper dive on the WZDx project and walk through the Version 1.1 (v1.1) Common Core Data Specification. Participants will learn more about the project goals, lessons learned, and how to get involved as a data producer or user.
