About Scott Andrews

Mr. Andrews has more than 30 years experience developing and managing high technology projects. His initial work was focused on microwave communications systems for space and military applications.

For the last 20 years he has focused exclusively on the development and management of technologies in support of Intelligent Transportation Systems.


At Toyota between 1996 and 2000 he was the project manager for Toyota’s work on the Automated Highway System (AHS) program, and served on the TravInfo steering committee. He was also a member of the US DOT Intelligent Vehicle Initiative (IVI) steering committee, and founded the Automotive Multimedia Interface Consortium out of which many of the early visions of the VII program were born.  Most recently, as System Architect for the VII Consortium he developed the key architectural elements of the system, working closely with Booz Allen Hamilton to develop the end-to-end specifications and requirements. He has served as Deputy Program Manager in the VIIC POC project specifically providing direct technical management of the VIIC cost share participants. His work on VII has included the development of the mobile unit architecture, an anonymous security system concept, the refinement and improvement of DSRC standards, and refinement of the use cases.


He developed a novel methodology to develop connected vehicle application requirements based on  a functional safety model (ISO 26262), and recently led the technicla development for an enhanced data collection stsrtem for the Saxton Transportation Operations Laboratory at the FHWA Turner Fairbank Highway Research Center. RHis  system provided precise time and location logging for a wide variety of in vehicle and infrastructure based data parameters. TIming accuracy was absolute to within 100 nsec.


Most recently he has served a the technical lead on an project to develop perfromance requirements for connected vehicles in support of the NHTSA NPRM relating to connected vehicles


Systems Engineering


Mr. Andrews has consulted with all of the major carmakers, the U.S. Department of Transportation, and  leading consumer products and services companies in support of the creation and delivery of mobile services and connected vehicle technologies. He  developed a specialied methodology to translate use cases into working subsystem requirements, and has served as a an ITS Systems Engineering  consultant fot several US DOT projects including the COnnected Vehicle Reference Implementation Architecture (CVRIA), the VII Proof of Concept, and a Smart Truck Parking system.


Global Automotive


At Toyota Motor Corporation in Japan, Mr. Andrews’ responsibilities included the conceptualization and development of multimedia and new technology products and services for Toyota's future generations of passenger vehicles in the United States and Europe.  Heavy emphasis was placed on strategy for information systems, and on development of technical concepts for computing and Internet oriented systems.

Past responsibilities included leading Toyota's US Automated Highway Systems program, management of technical contracts with Carnegie Mellon University Robotics Lab (Image based collision warning systems), and the development of Toyota's position on the US Intelligent Vehicle Initiative.
