Someone forwarded us the DOT's request recently. If you read it, the systems are focused on dedicated short-range communication devices. We have limited experience using these devices, but we have used smart phone technology to do something similar. CowTrip's Android application uses geofencing to communicate when you arrive at home or work. Combined with roadside sensors, this could be an excellent use case for geofencing technology.
