Department of Transportation’s Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Projects Book

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), formerly Intelligent Vehicle-Highway Systems (IVHS), provide the tools to help us address current surface transportation problems, as well as anticipate and address future demands through an intermodal, strategic approach to transportation. ITS applies current and emerging technologies in such fields as information processing, communications, control, and electronics to surface transportation needs. While ITS technologies alone cannot solve our transportation problems, they can enable us to rethink our approach to solutions, and make current activities more efficient and cost-effective. Effectively integrated and deployed, ITS technologies offer many benefits, including more efficient use of our infrastructure and energy resources, and significant improvements in safety, mobility, accessibility, and productivity. This report describes ITS projects, tests, and studies initiated through September 30, 1997, that have been partially or totally financed from Federal ITS funds. However, the Completed Projects sections, which are located at the end of each chapter, include projects that were actually finished as of September 30, 1997, plus those projects anticipated to be completed by the end of December, 1997. The purpose of this report is not to account for all Federal funds made available for ITS activities, but rather to describe all major projects, tests, and studies for each ITS program area.
