Florida Department of Transportation Research Peer Exchange, April 25-27, 2017

This report documents the Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT's) peer exchange held on April 25–27, 2017. The theme of this peer exchange was to discuss state department of transportation (DOT) research roadmaps in the contexts of national agenda/activity and emerging technologies—to explore how a program can work to be aware, agile, and relevant in this environment. The report follows the format of the panel and working sessions for the first two days of the exchange. Three panel sessions were held on day one, focusing on national activity, university and industry activity, and state DOT activity, respectively. The afternoon working session focused on the concept of a transportation research roadmap. The goal of the first half of day two was to workshop and synthesize the ideas generated from a presentation on the FDOT ROADS (Reliable Open Accurate Data Sharing) initiative and its implications for research data needs and data creation. The afternoon of day two was devoted to emerging technologies, typified by, but not limited to, automated and connected vehicle issues, and, in the context of the previous sessions, with the goal of developing recommendations for program improvement. Exchange presentations are included in the appendices.
