Traffic incident management (TIM) research is conducted by many groups with different perspectives: operations and response, enforcement, policy and planning, connected and automated vehicles, and smart cities and big data. This workshop provides an overview of the landscape of TIM research to understand the array of current projects and to identify synergies and research gaps. Also included are presentations and facilitated discussions to determine gaps and research needs.
