About ITS and Connected Vehicle Technicians
ITS Technicians are cross-disciplinary technical specialists operating in a continuously evolving environment requiring knowledge of multiple disciplines including Information Technology, Electrical Technology, Traffic Signals Technology, and Traffic Safety. ITS technicians install, repair, and maintain the roadside and network infrastructure which allow Intelligent Transportation Systems to perform their vital functions.
Connected Vehicle (CV) Technicians are also cross-disciplinary technical specialists operating in an emerging environment requiring knowledge of myriad disciplines including Information Technology, Electrical Technology, Automotive Technology, and Information Assurance.
