Computing Community Consortium Blog

The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.


U.S. Department of Transportation Webinar on Regional Intelligent Transportation Systems Data Sharing

March 27th, 2017 / in Announcements / by Khari Douglas

Department of Transportation logoThe Department of Transportation (DOT) is hosting a free webinar on regional intelligent transportation systems (ITS) data sharing this Friday, March 31st.

The webinar will focus on a planned Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) opportunity on regional ITS data sharing and will take place from 10-11 AM ET.

Public agencies are planning, developing, and deploying capabilities to capture, integrate, and manage data generated from connected and automated vehicles, mobile devices, advanced roadside technologies, and other sources. Few early deployers of advanced ITS technologies are prepared to share real-time data outside local jurisdictions while protecting privacy and proprietary interests as needed. New, low-cost, interoperable data management methods that enable on-demand data sharing and integration with third-party data and applications are needed.

 

Ariel Gold, ITS Joint Program Office (JPO) Data Program Manager, will discuss ITS data sharing between local jurisdictions, the importance of extensibility and replicability, and the application of these engineering and design principles to data systems. She will also discuss the role of the ITS JPO Data Program in supporting adoption of these methods. This webinar will set the stage for deeper discussion on how the ITS JPO will make these data available in the future.

The federal ITS program works to research, develop, and test intelligent transportation systems in the United States with a major focus on vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure connectivity. The ITS program also manages programs that support technology transfer and professional capacity building.

Register here for the webinar and learn more about the DOT’s ITS program on their website.
