Connected vehicles are the future of transportation, and the USDOT is driving the strategic vision on this research. Workshop W3 is focused on presenting the DOT preliminary plans for funding advanced connected vehicles research and development over the next 5 years and looks to feedback from the delegates on research areas needing more support.
The next ITS Strategic Plan will identify the ITS-related research, development, and education areas that the USDOT will focus on for the rest of the decade. As part of this effort, the ITS JPO (Intelligent Transportation System Joint Program Office)is conducting interviews, internal staff discussion sessions, and external stakeholder workshops and webinars to develop a strategic plan that supports the ITS JPO’s overall mission—“to conduct research, development, and education to facilitate the adoption of information and communication technology to enable society to move intelligently.” The feedback collected during the stakeholder workshops and webinars will be key inputs to the development of the draft external ITS Strategic Plan. These discussions will also support the development of goals and missions of the JPO's stakeholders.
Take advantage of the opportunity to address cutting-edge issues facing transportation today including safety, mobility, livability, funding, privacy, and help identify future areas of development.
