SMART COLUMBUS PROGRAM: Connected Electric Autonomous Vehicle (CEAV) Project WEBINAR
This webinar focused on the Operational Concept (OpCon) developed by the City of Columbus for the Connected Electric Autonomous Vehicle (CEAV) project, as well as the first deployment in Ohio with lessons learned and the lead-up to the second deployment. The OpCon aims to summarize a high-level view of the system to be deployed. It provides a quick reference for project stakeholders to ensure consistent understanding of project needs, process framework, and other system attributes.
Date: Wednesday, February 20, 2019
Presenters: Andy Wolpert – Deputy Program Manager, City of Columbus; Tom Timcho – Technical Lead, WSP; Steve Vozar – CTO, May Mobility; Jeff Kupko – Project Manager, Michael Baker Int'l/City of Columbus; Cynthia Jones - Project Manager, DriveOhio

SMART COLUMBUS PROGRAM: COMMON PAYMENT SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS WEBINAR
This webinar focused on the System Requirements Specification (SyRS) developed by the City of Columbus for the Common Payment System (CPS) project. The SyRS is intended to communicate the requirements of the CPS to the technical community interested in building and deploying a common payment platform. The SyRS is a “black-box” description of what the CPS must do, but not how it will do it. It also contains descriptions of inputs, outputs, and the required relationships between the two. This webinar was the fourth in a series of webinars on SyRS presented in a walkthrough format.

Presenters: Mandy Bishop, P.E., S.I. – Program Manager, City of Columbus; Andy Wolpert, P.E.– Project Manager, City of Columbus; Micheal Carroll – Chief Information Officer, Central Ohio Transit Authority; Alex Kavanagh – Technologist, HNTB
ITS Deployment Webinar Series – Webinar 3: Updating the ITS Benefits, Costs, and Lessons Learned Databases to better Analyze, Plan, and Evaluate your ITS Projects
This session walked participants through how to use data from the ITS costs, benefits, and lessons learned databases - located in the ITS Knowledge Resources Portal - to plan, justify, and evaluate future ITS projects. This session also sought participant feedback on what content would be most valuable for planning and evaluating projects and how to redesign the ITS Knowledge Resources Portal to meet user needs.
Date: Tuesday, March 27, 2018
Presenters: Marcia Pincus, Program Manager - ITS Deployment Evaluation, USDOT ITS JPO; Liz Greer, Drennan Hicks, and Janet Fraser, Noblis
ITS Deployment Webinar Series – Webinar 2: ITS Deployment Tracking Survey 2016-2017: Connected Vehicle Results and Beyond
This session discussed key findings on a new set of connected vehicle questions included in the ITS Deployment Tracking Survey 2016-2017. This interactive session sought participant feedback on the types of advanced technologies and deployment information that future deployment tracking surveys should collect. The session also polled participants to gather input on how to make the survey more useful to users, including deployers, planners, researchers, and policy makers.
Date: Tuesday, March 6, 2018
Presenters: Marcia Pincus, Program Manager - ITS Deployment Evaluation, USDOT ITS JPO; Margaret Petrella and Lora Chajka-Cadin, Volpe National Transportation Systems Center
ITS Deployment Webinar Series – Webinar 1: ITS Deployment Tracking Survey 2016-2017: Selected Results and Analysis
This session discussed key findings and results from the ITS Deployment Tracking Survey 2016-2017. Some of the highlighted results included deployment trends in surveillance and advanced detection technology, adoption of adaptive traffic signals by arterial agencies, and how transportation agencies are using social media to gather and distribute information on travel conditions and schedules.

Standards and Specifications for MOD
In this webinar, we heard from TriMet discuss the Open Trip Planner, an in-house wayfinding tool that is built to open standards and able to scale for use by other transit agencies and other interested parties. We also heard from VTrans and their development of the GTFS-Flex data standard and its incorporation into Open Trip Planner. Finally, FTA introduced multimodal payment integration and its current developments.

Application Development Webinar Series
Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) Connected Vehicle Pilot Application Design Stage Update
During this session we learned about the connected vehicle applications being developed as part of the Wyoming DOT Connected Vehicle Pilot. Representatives from the Wyoming DOT Pilot shared their experiences of designing the safety and weather-related CV applications; identified technical and other barriers they are facing and how they are being overcome; and discussed how these applications will eventually be tested and their performance measured.
Date: Wednesday, February 7, 2018

Presenters: USDOT, Scoop, Metropia
ITS PUBLIC DATA UPDATE WEBINAR
In this webinar, we learned about new, real-time data available from the Wyoming CV Pilot and other data sets the ITS JPO is making available to the public now and in the future. These data sets showcase the new ITS JPO data access policies and systems, which establish real-time access to data from ongoing ITS research projects as the new default. This webinar also included a demonstration of new tools for discovering, accessing, and using ITS research data, available via www.its.dot.gov/data, and updates on related ITS JPO Data Program projects.
