New This Year:
We have expanded this year's conference to two days, increasing your opportunity to contribute and learn about many facets of ITS. This year our focus is on using ITS to create tools that provide travelers with multimodal information at their fingertips and increases the safety of traveling. With the recent emphasis at the Federal level on connected travelers and vehicles, New England is exploring how to take advantage of the most recent developments in this area. A significant part of this area is the use and analysis of open and big data generated by ITS systems. Further, autonomous vehicles, or driverless cars, are becoming more and more prominent in the news. Finally, "smart cities" are taking advantage of all of these developments in ITS. Sessions at this year's annual meeting will cover these topics, including innovations in technology to improve traveler information, open data policies and use, connected vehicle applications, issues associated with autonomous vehicles and smart cities. The conference represents a unique opportunity to increase your ITS knowledge and network with the leading ITS transportation professionals in New England.
