ITS Deployment Tracking Survey: Connected Vehicle Technologies and Beyond Webinar

To what extent are agencies planning to deploy connected vehicle technologies? Which connected vehicle applications are they planning to deploy? What barriers are preventing agencies from considering these technologies? This webinar will present key findings on a new set of connected vehicle questions included in the 2016-2017 ITS Deployment Tracking Survey. This interactive session will also seek participant feedback on the types of advanced technologies and deployment information that future deployment tracking surveys should collect. The session aims to gather input on how we can make the survey more useful to users, including deployers, planners, researchers, and policy makers.

Speakers: Marcia Pincus, Program Manager, ITS Deployment Evaluation, USDOT ITS JPO; Steve Gordon, Oak Ridge National Laboratory; Margaret Petrella and Lora Chajka-Cadin, Volpe National Transportation Systems Center

Updating the ITS Knowledge Resource Databases to Better Analyze, Plan, and Evaluate Your ITS Projects Webinar

Updating the ITS Knowledge Resource Databases to Better Analyze, Plan, and Evaluate Your ITS Projects

How much does it cost to implement adaptive traffic control in an intersection or corridor? What are the benefits of this technology and what performance metrics can be used? Where has it been successfully implemented? This webinar will briefly show 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 your next ITS project. The interactive session will seek participant feedback on what content would be most valuable for planning and evaluating projects and how we can redesign this resource to meet user needs.

Speakers: Marcia Pincus, Program Manager, ITS Deployment Evaluation, USDOT ITS JPO; Liz Greer, Drennan Hicks, and Janet Fraser, Noblis

ITS Deployment Tracking: 2016-2017 Survey Findings on Current Levels and Trends Webinar

ITS Deployment Tracking: 2016-2017 Survey Findings on Current Levels and Trends

What are the deployment trends in surveillance and advanced detection technology? Does the adoption of adaptive traffic signals by arterial agencies still occur at a rapid pace? How are transportation agencies using social media to gather and distribute information on travel conditions and schedules? This webinar will answer some of the biggest questions regarding ITS deployment in the United States by focusing on key findings from the 2016-2017 survey and highlighting trends in ITS deployment.

Speakers: Marcia Pincus, Program Manager, ITS Deployment Evaluation, USDOT ITS JPO; Steve Gordon, Oak Ridge National Laboratory

STANDARDS AND SPECIFICATIONS FOR MOD WEBINAR

Presenters: USDOT, TriMet, VTrans
Registration: Click Here

The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) will be hosting a webinar which will discuss the needs and subsequent strategies for standards and specifications arisen during the Mobility on Demand (MOD) demonstrations. This webinar will allow interested stakeholders to learn about two MOD grant projects that are using open source software, open data and standards to facilitate the replication of the systems.

Participants will hear from TriMet and VTrans regarding their MOD projects, focusing on the integration of shared-use mobility providers the OpenTripPlanner (OTP). Furthermore, participants will also learn about initiatives supporting MOD activities such as Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) multimodal payment integration initiative.

Technologies like smartphones and on-demand transportation options have disrupted transportation models in many areas across the world. However, with so many MOD providers entering the space, interoperability is becoming evident, but equally difficult to maintain. Our speakers will discuss their experiences in developing open source standards, to provide open and scalable platforms for interoperability and replicability. Our speakers will also discuss payment integration solutions to provide a seamless travel experience within the mobility system.

This webinar is sponsored by the USDOT Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (ITS JPO) and is free and open to the public.

USDOT ATTRI UPDATE WEBINAR 4 – SAFE INTERSECTION CROSSING

Presenters: USDOT, Carnegie Mellon University

Registration: Click Here

The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) and ITS America will be hosting a webinar which will provide an update from two of the ATTRI projects. This webinar will allow interested stakeholders to learn about some of the progress being made by the ATTRI program, and more specifically, hear directly from Carnegie Mellon University about their safe intersection crossing project.

Participants will hear directly from Carnegie Mellon University about the successes and challenges of its safe intersection crossing project. This is one of six projects awarded contracts by USDOT this year to develop technology prototypes to improve mobility options for all travelers, particularly those with disabilities. This project intends to connect pedestrian travelers with disabilities to the traffic signal systems (and, by extension, nearby connected vehicles and infrastructure), and use this connectivity to develop assistive services for safe intersection crossing and increased dependent mobility.

The Accessible Transportation Technologies Research Initiative (ATTRI) is a joint USDOT initiative co-led by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Federal Transit Administration (FTA), Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Joint Program Office (JPO), and other Federal partners.

For people with disabilities, including older adults and injured veterans, inadequate mobility and transportation can be a barrier to obtaining employment, commuting to appointments, shopping for groceries, or attending social events that many take for granted. ATTRI leads efforts to research, develop, and implement transformative solutions, applications, and systems to help all people, particularly those with disabilities, effectively plan and execute their travel, addressing individual mobility needs. ATTRI leverages recent advances in vehicle, infrastructure, and pedestrian-based technologies, as well as accessible data, mobile computing, robotics, artificial intelligence, object detection, and navigation.

This webinar is sponsored by the USDOT ITS JPO.  It is free and open to the public.
