Terrific Long-Term Contract Opportunity with a FULL suite of benefits!

Position:Connected Vehicle Systems Integrator Technical Consultant
Location: Denver, Colorado
Term: 48 weeks

Since 2016, our client has had a connected vehicle (CV) program, focused on deploying infrastructure to the roadside and within their fleet that can enable the sending of messages between vehicles and infrastructure for roadway decision making by operators. To date, our client has 133 deployed roadside devices, primarily on the I-70 Mountain Corridor, along with some of their equipped fleet. The clients' deployed units are unique in that they feature the only deployed dual-band radios in the country, capable of transmitting in both the dedicated short range communication (DSRC) and cellular vehicle to everything (CV2X) protocols.
In 2019, our client revised their CV Program Roadmap to feature the software development of an open-source platform developed by the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT), and leveraged by several CV pilots across the country. The development of this software will support the deployed CV infrastructure in Colorado today, and those units deployed in the future. This software, referred here as the CV environment, will live inside our client's broader Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) architecture.  Our client is seeking consultant support for the development of a CV environment, including consultant expertise and guidance during the planning, design, and system deployment stages.
