Vehicle speed harmonization has the potential to improve traffic efficiency and improve safety by making lane changing easier. Engineers at the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) collaborated with the Virginia Department of Transportation and road operator TransUrban, to carry out tests on the I95. The tests included combining speed harmonization with vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technologies, such as platooning and cooperative lane merging.
