On behalf of the U.S. Department of Transportation, ITS America frequently delivers webinars to the ITS stakeholder community in order to inform interested parties of some of the current work that is being done in the industry. In particular these webinars focus on the work being done by the ITS Research program which is led by the ITS Joint Program Office (JPO). Most presentations relate directly to the Connected Vehicle Program, though other areas of interest are also addressed.

Accessible Transportation Technologies Research Initiative (ATTRI) Update Webinar - Robotics and Automation Project
The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) will host a free webinar on the Accessible Transportation Technology Research Initiative (ATTRI). Together with the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR), this USDOT ITS JPO sponsored webinar will provide an update on the Robotics and Automation project funded by NIDILRR and led by Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). In addition, this webinar will allow interested stakeholders to learn about some of the progress being made by ATTRI, and more specifically, hear directly from CMU about the successes and challenges of its robotics and automation project. Through a cooperative agreement with NIDILRR's Disability Rehabilitation Research Project (DRRP), CMU is researching and developing seamless transportation assistance from cloud-based autonomy and shared robots located in and around transportation hubs in partnership with key industry, government, and consumer stakeholders.
