Webinar: Demonstrating the Benefits and Costs of ITS: Using the Enhanced Knowledge Resources for your Next ITS Project
March 17, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pmFree
The U.S. Department of Transportation’s ITS Joint Program Office has announced upcoming webinars in the Talking Technology and Transportation series. On March 17, 1 – 2:30 ET, the webinar “Demonstrating the Benefits and Costs of ITS: Using the Enhanced Knowledge Resources for your Next ITS Project” will be presented.
Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) identifies Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) as part of the solution to the Nation’s transportation needs and provides mechanisms for accelerating deployment of innovative technology. The ITS Joint Program Office (JPO) of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) provides online ITS Knowledge Resources (http://www.itskrs.its.dot.gov) for informed decision making about ITS implementation and deployment. The major objectives on these online tools are to:
- Capture ITS costs, benefits and lessons learned experiences of stakeholders in their planning, deployment, operations, maintenance, and evaluation of ITS.
- Provide all ITS stakeholders with convenient access to costs, benefits and lessons learned knowledge so that they can make informed decisions in their future ITS actions.
This webinar will show new and current users how to navigate the ITS Knowledge Resources to answer common questions that arise in ITS project planning, procurement, and project selection. It will highlight the 2014 ITS Benefits, Costs and Lessons Learned Report and interactive fact sheets, and show how they can be used to provide information and graphics for project proposals and other reports. Case study examples will illustrate how the Knowledge Resources could be used by an agency to estimate benefits and costs of deployed ITS systems. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and give feedback about their experiences with the ITS Knowledge Resources.
