What's New in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)
Deployment Webinar Series

The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) ITS Joint Program Office (JPO) hosted a new three-part webinar series highlighting the latest trends and developments in ITS deployment.

ITS Deployment Tracking: 2016-2017 Survey Findings on Current Levels and Trends (February 20, 2018)

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 addressed 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

ITS Deployment Tracking Survey: Connected Vehicle Technologies and Beyond (March 6, 2018)

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 presents key findings on a new set of connected vehicle questions included in the 2016-2017 ITS Deployment Tracking Survey. This interactive session also sought participant feedback on the types of advanced technologies and deployment information that future deployment tracking surveys should collect and gathered 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 (March 27, 2018)

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 demonstrated 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 sought 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
