About Us

SBC members are transportation agencies and research affiliates that operate inside the core area and make a financial commitment to the SBC. The members vote on Coalition priorities, actions, and strategic direction. The role of the five agencies as infrastructure owners and operators is to guide research, deployment, and policy development in order to support their respective missions.

The role of the transportation affiliate academic institutions and research centers is to jointly work with the agencies to identify and develop potential research topics in connected vehicle technologies, automated vehicle technologies, vehicle electrification, and other emerging technologies. SBC partners are participants that operate outside of the core area but have vested interests in either exchanging information with the SBC or participating in specific projects that the SBC heads.

The SBC meets four times a year to conduct administrative, project, and planning functions. Additional meetings and webinars are established as-needed for initiative-specific purpose, or for additional administrative functions.
