USDOT publishes report on intelligent transportation systems


The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) has unveiled a report on the lessons learned, benefits and costs of intelligent transportation systems (ITS).

The report and accompanying fact sheets were developed by the USDOT's ITS Joint Program Office using web-based resources to support informed decision-making regarding ITS planning and development, according to a department press release.

"To address the transportation challenges facing today's communities, new transportation technologies are being developed and applied to improve safety and mobility and reduce the impact of travel on the environment," department officials said. "They include connected vehicles, automation, accessible transportation, smart communities and mobility on demand."

The report features fact sheets for each of those topics and updates on traditional ITS issues.
