  • LUST – leaking underground storage tank program
  • Has created new opportunities: Capitol Hill Tech Showcase, Smart Solution Spotlight, increased news coverageNeed to capitalize on current momentum, continue making our voice heard in the crowded policy debate
  • Click -1Data from vehicles are made available via CV technologies.Click-2They are all interoperable and this permits the formation of a data environment, which can be a client-server architecture, ad hoc peer to peer, or something we haven’t thought of yet.Click-3These data can be consumed by a broad spectrum of devices. Click - 4Vision – Multi Source Data fusionObjectivesEnable systematic data capture from connected vehicles (automobiles, transit, trucks), mobile devices, and infrastructureDevelop data environments that enable integration of data from multiple sources for use in transportation management and performance measurementReduce costs of data management and eliminate technical and institutional barriers to the capture, management, and sharing of dataClick – 5Vision – Transportation version of the App Store.ObjectivesCreate applications enablers using frequently collected and rapidly disseminated multi-source data from connected travelers, vehicles (automobiles, transit, freight) and infrastructureDevelop and assess applications showing potential to improve nature, accuracy, precision and/or speed of dynamic decision making by system managers and system usersDemonstrate promising applications predicted to significantly improve capability of transportation system to provide safe, reliable, and secure movement of goods and people

  • ITS Heartland Keynote Address from ITS America

    1. 1. ITS Heartland Annual MeetingMarch 27, 2012Kansas City, Missouri
    2. 2. Transportation Reauthorization Update
    3. 3. Where Are We Today?• 2.5 years since SAFETEA-LU expired• House and Senate reached an agreement last October on a six-month extension to March 31, 2012 • 8th extension – expires in 5 days • Funded at current levels for the full year ($47B) • Trust funding runs out at year’s end
    4. 4. Administration Released2013 USDOT Budget Proposal• $478B over six years (50% larger than SAFETEA-LU)• Significant increase for roads and bridges (34%), transit (105%) and safety (137%)• Trust fund shortfall paid for with savings from ramping down wars in Iraq and Afghanistan• Major focus on “advancing innovative programs and technological solutions”
    5. 5. Transportation Finally on theFront Burner in Congress• Senate: Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21)• House: American Energy and Jobs Infrastructure Act• House and Senate bills on potential collision course over funding mechanisms, length of bill, and treatment of transit UNLESS the House takes up the Senate bill
    6. 6. Senate Bill: Top-line Summary• Revenue Sources: $109 billion over two years – Highway Trust Fund + Increase in TIFIA – LUST Fund Transfer, IRA redistribution, imported tariffs and the closing of the black liquor loophole• Policy Framework: – 87 Highway Programs consolidated/eliminated with more formula flexibility – Expedites project delivery; Performance based – Eliminates earmarks; New Freight Program – Retains Transit at current levels but creates more federal and state safety oversight
    7. 7. Senate Transportation Bill –Growing Momentum • Voted out 74 to 22 on March 14 • Senators’ Boxer and Inhofe are United • Business, Labor and Transportation Industry are United Pressure on the House to Pass a Bill
    8. 8. House Bill: Top-Line Summary• $260 billion over five years ($52 billion / year): consistent with current funding levels• Consolidates/eliminates nearly 70 federal programs, eliminates earmarks• Expedites project approvals by delegating authority to states• Performance measures• Expands TIFIA program, incentivizes State Infrastructure Banks, expands tolling authority, and encourages more private sector participation
    9. 9. House Transportation Bill –Sticking Points• Revenue Sources: $260 billion over five years – Highway Trust Fund (HTF), TIFIA, State Infrastructure Banks – ANWR, oil shale, offshore drilling and Keystone XL pipeline – General Fund and Federal Pensions – Alternative Transportation Account - Transit / CMAQ• House Revolt – Conservatives opposed $260 billion cost/energy “pay-fors” – Moderates opposed transit severance from HTF – Administration issued veto threat – Bill cannot muster votes for floor passage – Leadership mulls new package; may take up Senate bill – SAFETEA-LU expiration date is March 31
    10. 10. ITS America Authorization CampaignHas Been Enormously Successful• New ITS deployment programs• Strong planning and performance measures tied to ITS• ITS called out in every major formula program with ITS referenced more than 80 times in Senate bill• Establishes a base for next year, if bills do not pass in 2012• Enabled by an ITS America Campaign staff of three
    11. 11. Be Part of the Solution…• ITS America-led campaign to champion high-tech solutions for transportation – Improved Congressional and media relations – ITS industry at the table for key legislative debates• Making our voice heard in the crowded policy debate – Call, Write, and Meet with your Congressmen and Senators• Sponsor the Campaign for Intelligent Transportation Solutions
    12. 12. U.S. DOT Connected Vehicle Program• Multimodal and Connected• Vision To research and facilitate a national, multimodal surface transportation system that features a connected transportation environment around vehicles of all types, the infrastructure, and portable devices to serve the public good by leveraging technology to maximize safety, mobility, and environmental performance. Plan developed with full participation by all surface transportation modal administrations as well as with significant interaction with multi-modal stakeholders.

ITS Research Program Components Applications Safety Mobility Environment Real Time Dynamic Road Safety Data Capture V2V V2I Pilot & Mobility AERIS Weather Applications Applications Management Harmonization of International Standards & Architecture Technology Human Factors Systems Engineering Certification Test Environments Deployment Scenarios Policy Financing & Investment Models Operations & Governance Institutional Issues
    14. 14. Multi-Step Approach• Step 1 – Accelerate Vehicle-to-Vehicle Safety – Develop Core Set of Applications – Conduct Benefits Assessment – Develop Driver / Vehicle Interface Guidelines – Define Globally Harmonized Standards – Assess Security Issues – Prepare for 2013 NHTSA Agency Decision• Step 2 – Demonstrate Safety – Safety Pilot Model Deployment in Ann Arbor, MI – Major road test and real-world implementation involving multiple vehicle types and Fully integrated systems and aftermarket devices – Testing will also include the prototype security mechanisms and the certification processes
    15. 15. Multi-Step Approach• Step 3 – Define the System and Establish Testing Environment – Completed User Needs identification, Concept of Operations, Systems Requirements, and System Architecture documents of the Core System – Current focus on Policy (Governance, Liability, Privacy)
    16. 16. Multi-Step Approach• Step 4 – Build Vehicle-to-Infrastructure Safety, Mobility, and AERIS Data Environments and Applications – V 2 I for Safety – Accelerate Signal Phase and Timing (SPAT)-based applications, Signal Systems Smart Roadside, and transit Transit Management – Prototype the Data Environment of the Freight R.E.S.C.U.M.E future –> all vehicles as probes using ATIS Open Data and standard interfaces Speed Harmonization – Prototype, field-test and analyze Mobility Applications • Use Open Source software approach to accelerate deployment – Define and test AERIS Applications

    18. 18. Multi-Step Approach• Step 5 – Build a Reference Implementation – 2011: • Testbeds are up and running with interoperable equipment in CA, FL, NY, MI, VA, and TN – 2012-13: • Reflect the System Architecture • Utilize Harmonized International Standards • Implement a Certification Process • Implement a Governance Process • Implement a Security Process
    19. 19. Multi-Step Approach• Step 6 – Conduct Regional Pilot Projects – Started Planning and Stakeholder Involvement in the Theme • Multiple Implementation Areas • Opportunity to pilot a variety of applications per a site’s need - sites choose from a suite of field tested applications • Seeds Implementation • Uses Lessons Learned from Safety Pilot • Builds on a Stakeholder-Defined Architecture • Accelerates DSRC for Safety • Leverages Available Wireless Communications for Mobility and Environment Applications • Leverages Private Sector Investments Occurring Now
