Innovating Transportation Management with Technology

  • Date: February 20, 2014

  • Category: Webinar

Overview

Data has the ability to transform the way cities manage and provide a variety of services – including transportation. The University of Maryland’s Center for Advanced Transportation Technology Laboratory has created the Regional Integrated Transportation Information System (RITIS) which is an automated data sharing,dissemination, and archiving system that is revolutionizing transportation management in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. RITIS automatically fuses, translates, and standardizes data obtained from multiple agencies in order to provide an enhanced overall view of the regional transportation network. Participating agencies are able to view transportation and related emergency management information through innovative visualizations and use it to improve their operations and emergency preparedness. RITIS also uses regional standardized data to provide information to third parties, the media, and other traveler information resources including web sites, paging systems, and 511.
 
The National League of Cities has partnered with the Intelligent Transportation Society of America to develop this webinar which demonstrate the RITIS system and how it is managing the region’s complex transportation system.  It will also cover what some of the quantifiable environmental and economic benefits have been and the impact it is having on planning transportation systems that meet future needs.
