Sign in to reveal location
Workshop
Jon Obenberger, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)
Sponsored by:
Standing Committee on Intelligent Transportation Systems (ACP15)

The workshop will explore successful practices, resources, and issues agencies should consider with: 1) developing and maintaining an inventory of TMS assets and resources, 2) monitoring and assessing TMS assets and resources, and 3) assessing and reporting on TMS capabilities. In addition to podium presentations, the workshop will feature a highly interactive breakout-session with small-group discussions, to gain the most benefit from the expertise of attendees. The next generation of TMSs will offer agencies the potential to significantly improve safety and mobility. The workshop outcomes will assist agencies as they transition to next-generation of their systems. However, these transitions require agencies to make decisions regarding all of the TMS assets and resources, the condition of these assets, and a full assessment of their agency and system’s capabilities and performance.
