Transit ITS Best Practices Workshop - Connecting the Dots: Leverging the Union of Current and Future Technologies
THIS MEETING HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL THE FALL. PLEASE CHECK BACK TO THIS PAGE FOR MORE DETAILS AS THEY BECOME AVAILABLE.
APTA in conjunction with ITS America and with support from the USDOT is pleased to announce the next ITS Best Practices Workshop on the topic of Connecting the Dots: Leverging the Union of Current and Future Technologies. This meeting will be held in Detroit, MI at the Sheraton Detroit Metro Airport. Date TBD.
The objective of the workshop is to create a forum that brings together industry leaders among the transit systems using Transit ITS, transit systems exploring innovative enhancements for their curent/future systems, as well as the consultants and suppliers involved in the deployment of Transit ITS. The objectives of the Workshop are to:
- identify the state-of-the-art in terms of modules/uses of Transit ITS,
- build awareness and identify the potential opportunities offered by the connected vehicle developments that might be pertinent for transit, and,
- enable a discussion among participants of potential benefits, and challenges of the connected vehicle environment
About This Workshop
This ITS Best Practices Workshop will be held in Detroit, MI, near the home of the USDOT's Connected Vehicle Test Bed, a federally funded resource available to developers to test how connected vehicle technologies will perform under real-world operating conditions. The Test Bed has been established to provide a real enviornment where intersections, roadways and vehicles are able to communicate through wireless connectivity. This environment consists of a network of 50 roadside equipment (RSE) units installed along various segments of live interstate roadways, arterials and signalized and unsignalized intersections. These RSE's communicate messages over 5.9GHz dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC). Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from experts at this facility and to see the Test Bed firsthand.
Selected Topics for Discussion
- Connected Vehicle Program and Transit
- Current Developments in Safety Technology
- Perspectives and Challenges in Coordinating ITS and Transit Connected Vehicles
- Managing Advanced Vehicles
Who should attend: all Intelligent Transportation Systems practitioners; agencies, manufacturers, integrators, researchers, and consumers of future Connected Vehicle technologies; developers and agencies that have or want to implement real-time wireless communications with the riding public.
