For the intelligent transportation systems (ITS) professionals, stakeholders and gurus out there: wouldn’t it be nice if there was an online resource that combined 20 years of industry knowledge—like data on ITS research, deployment statistics, costs, benefits and lessons learned—into a convenient, searchable database that was free and open to the public?

In case you didn’t see where this was going, allow us to introduce you to the ITS Knowledge Resources Portal, brought to you by USDOT’s Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (ITS JPO).

The Portal is practically a one-stop-shop for all of your ITS knowledge needs. And this February and March, the USDOT will host a three-part public webinar series to review some of its coolest and most useful features. Along the way, participants will also learn about some of the latest trends in ITS deployment as identified by key ITS stakeholders.

Part one of the webinar series will commence on February 20 from 1-2 pm Eastern. It’ll highlight key findings from USDOT’s 2016 ITS Deployment Tracking Survey. The session will also discuss adaptive traffic signals, as well as ways in which agencies are using social media to distribute pertinent traveler information.

Par two, held from 1-2 Eastern on March 6, is an interactive session where the Department will seek feedback on the types of data—from information on advanced technologies to ITS deployments—that should be collected in future ITS surveys. The end goal, the Department says, is to make its Knowledge Resources Portal even more valuable to ITS deployment specialists, planners, researchers and policymakers.

Part three, happening on March 27 (time TBA), will seek additional feedback on content for the Portal that would be valuable for planning and evaluating transportation projects, as well as input on how the resource could be redesigned to better meet user needs.

Keep an eye on the ITS JPO website for more information, including how to register for the three-part series. For now, head to the Knowledge Resources Portal and check it out!
