USDOT extends deadline for ITS plan

The US Department of Transportation (USDOT) has extended the deadline for public input to April 15, 2013, as the agency develops the next version of the ITS Strategic Plan. It has released a new document, ‘An Open Dialogue on the Draft Focus and Themes for the Next ITS Strategic Research Plan: Engaging Stakeholders in Their Discussion and Development’, which identifies the ITS-related issues that USDOT will focus on for the rest of the decade. The current ITS Strategic Research Plan-2010-2014 established a focused research agenda to prepare the next generation of intelligent transportation system (ITS) technologies for widespread deployment throughout the USA. The new discussion document is the first step in developing the ITS research agenda for 2015 to 2019.

The purpose of the document is to identify the focus and themes for the next installment of the ITS Strategic Research Plan and to invite stakeholders to participate in their discussion. The open dialogue will enable continuity of the USDOT’s current research programs while establishing new or redefined goals and objectives to meet emerging research needs. The document presents the following broad themes for discussion: Maturing Connected Vehicle Systems focuses on what is needed to accelerate the maturity of vehicle-based communications with surrounding systems; Piloting and Deployment Readiness focuses on the security, policy, business opportunities, capabilities, pilots, and incentives needed to support vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) implementation; Integrating with the Broader Environment focuses on the integration and decision support capabilities to enable V2V and V2I interaction with other governmental services and public utilities.

The discussion document provides an opportunity for stakeholders to share their perspectives and help shape the future of federal ITS research in the USA. USDOT would like to thank all those that have already contributed feedback. To participate in the discussion, go to: http://itsstrategicplan.ideascale.com/
