ITS ePrimer: Connected Vehicles and Data in Decision Making

When: Tuesday, April 27, 2021 -- 2:00 - 3:30 PM ET

This webinar was sponsored by ITS Professional Capacity Building Program, ITS Joint Program Office, U.S. Department of Transportation

Webinar Description:

Supported by USDOT, the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) ePrimer provides transportation professionals with fundamental concepts and practices related to ITS technologies. Since its initial release in 2013, this resource has been widely used by public and private agencies and educational institutions. In 2020, the USDOT initiated an update to several ITS ePrimer modules to keep up with the significant technological advances that occurred in the ITS world. This free webinar includes presentations on the new Module 4: ITS Data in Decision Making and the updated Module 13: Connected Vehicles.

Module 4-ITS Data in Decision Making contains detailed information on how State and local agencies are at the crest of applying new data and analytics to improve strategic, real-time, and predictive decisions that can save agencies resources and operator workload. These new data and analytics will also help agencies improve the safety, reliability, and efficiency of travel.

Module 13-Connected Vehicles describes the development and eventual deployment of connected vehicles (CVs) within the surface transportation system with an emphasis on ITS. The module addresses the current and emerging connected ecosystem, technologies, demonstrations, and challenges of deploying infrastructure in support of connected vehicle applications.

Learning Objectives:
Attendees of this webinar will be able to:

  • Demonstrate various sources of ITS data and explore modern analytical techniques and tools that support real-time and predictive capabilities
  • Describe how modern management supports improved data-driven decision making
  • Discuss the connected ecosystem, including CVs, the connected infrastructure, and communications
  • Examine the technological evolution and programmatic history of CVs as they have begun to be deployed within the transportation system, including the roles of government and industry stakeholders
  • Demonstrate the benefits and challenges of CV application development and deployment
