ITS Benefits, Costs, and Lessons Learned: 2019 Executive Briefings

Introduction

Intelligent transportation systems (ITS) provide a proven set of strategies for advancing transportation safety, mobility, and environmental sustainability by integrating communication and information technology applications into the management and operation of the transportation system across all modes. In the future, ITS technologies will transform surface transportation by offering a connected environment among vehicles (including automated vehicles), the infrastructure and passengers' wireless devices, allowing drivers to send and receive real-time information about potential hazards and road conditions.

The 2019 Executive Briefings were developed from information found in three related web-based databases, the ITS Benefits Database, ITS Costs Database, and the ITS Lesson Learned Database -- known collectively as the ITS Knowledge Resources (KRs) (accessed at www.itskrs.its.dot.gov). The databases are maintained by the USDOT’s ITS Joint Program Office (JPO) Evaluation Program to support informed decision making regarding ITS investments by tracking the effectiveness of deployed ITS. As of April 1, 2019, there were a total of 2,349 entries of ITS benefits, costs, and lessons learned in the ITS Knowledge Resources databases from the United States and around the world.

This annual series of Executive Briefings presents recent information on the benefits, costs, and lessons learned regarding ITS planning, deployment, operation and maintenance, and is intended to supplement the 2018 Update Report. Over 200 entries have been added since the publication of the 2018 Update report. The Executive Briefings can be viewed on a device or tablet or printed for quick reference.
