To improve mobility, U.S. DOT is all in on data

Data creation is at an all-time high and the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) is using that data to better plan infrastructure. Their Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (ITS JPO) is a multimodal partnership working to improve ITS deployments through data sharing, data standardization, and public and private partnerships.

A variety of infrastructure projects in the works now are producing data to improve safety and mobility into the future. These projects center around vehicle automation, collision avoidance, truck platooning, and signal phase timing. On the ground, this data is better connecting traditionally underserved communities to job centers in Columbus, Ohio and guiding connected vehicle pilot programs in Wyoming, New York City, and Tampa, FL. Additionally, through a research data exchange, registered users can download data from similar “next-gen” transportation projects.

ITS JPO partners with various federal agencies, state and local governments, academic institutions and private partners.
