Section A - Background

The Cowlitz-Wahkiakum Council of Governments (CWCOG) is working on an Electric Vehicle Readiness and Connected and Autonomous Vehicle Plan for its metropolitan and regional transportation planning programs serving the geographic area of Longview-Kelso, WA and Rainier, OR as well as the five counties of Cowlitz, Grays Harbor, Lewis, Pacific, and Wahkiakum.  The primary purpose of this work is to develop a guide for local agencies, stakeholders, and others as an initial framework for future planning and coordination concerning electric vehicles and connected and autonomous vehicles.

The freight industry in our region will likely experience the impact of connected and autonomous vehicles first.  As such CWCOG is using this survey to gather feedback from freight stakeholders (private business, elected officials, local agency staff, and state and federal government) regarding this emerging technology.

To learn more about the technology and possible freight impacts, please refer to a presentation by Transpo Group at CWCOG’s recent Freight Stakeholders meeting here

Below are a few key definitions.

Connected Vehicle: Communicates with nearby vehicles and infrastructure with human control.

Autonomous Vehicle: Operates in isolation from other vehicles with use of an internal sensor with minimal human assistance.

Connected & Autonomous Vehicle: Combines features of both a connected and autonomous vehicle.

Thank you for taking a few minutes of your time to complete this survey!  Your feedback is important.
