Planning for the Future of ITS
The ITS Joint Program Office’s 2020-2025 ITS Strategic Plan
The U.S. Department of Transportation’s ITS research focuses on several high-priority areas including Emerging and Enabling Technologies, Data Access and Exchanges, ITS Cybersecurity Research, Automation, Complete Trip – ITS4US, and Accelerating ITS Deployment. The ITS Strategic Plan includes in-depth discussion of the ITS Program’s strategic goals, these research areas, and four technology transfer programs.

U.S. DOT Seeks Comments on National ITS Architecture
The U.S. Department of Transportation is planning an update to the National Intelligent Transportation Systems Architecture and is seeking comments from stakeholders interested in this important initiative. The survey is being conducted by the Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office which is part of the Research and Innovative Technology Administration. Input collected from the survey will influence the future direction of the National ITS Architecture and will ultimately impact regional ITS architectures and the Turbo Architecture software.
The National ITS Architecture provides a common framework for planning, defining, and integrating intelligent transportation systems. It is a mature product that reflects the contributions of a broad cross-section of the ITS community. The architecture defines the functions that are required for smart transportation systems, the physical subsystems where these functions reside, and the information exchanges that connect these functions and physical subsystems together into an integrated system.
Version 6.1 of the National ITS Architecture is available online at http://www.its.dot.gov/research_archives/arch/index.htm.
The deadline for completion of the survey is Friday June 10, 2011.
All comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
