2 ITS and SAFETEA-LU SAFETEA-LU Contains Strong ITS Research Support –$110 million per year Final Bill Did Not Provide Deployment Funds Bill Did Contain CVISN Funding (Title IV – FMCSA) Bill Includes a Real-time System Management Information Program Bill Supports Increased Emphasis on Management and Operations
3 ITS Research and Development (5301-5310) Program reauthorized and expanded. $550 million over 5 years – Road weather - $20 million (5308) – I-95 Corridor - $35 million (5211) – Rural and Interstate Corridor Communications Study – $3 million (5507) New advisory committee required. New 5-year program plan required. Work underway to establish advisory committee. Program plan to be completed by August.
4 ITS Deployment Funding Mainstreamed throughout Federal-aid program; including high priority projects. Eligible under NHS, STP, and CMAQ. Operational and management strategies must be included in metropolitan transportation plans. Categorical NEPA exclusion. ITS Deployment funds in 2005 only. $100 million, over 4 years, for CVISN deployment.

7 Cooperative Intersection Collision Avoidance System (CICAS) Goal: Advance deployment of intersection collision avoidance systems at the most hazardous signalized intersections Approach -Develop and test intersection violation warning system. Conduct research on gap- assist systems. Status –CAMP has begun work on the stop sign and signal violation warning task. –MN and CA DOT’s have begun work on the gap stop sign assist and gap left turn assist respectively. –A cost benefits analysis tool is being developed to give better estimates relating to CICAS value and potential for deployment. Plans for 2006 –Conduct a concept of operations workshop for violation warning –Begin testing of driver vehicle interfaces for violation warning. –Complete independent evaluation plan for violation FOT. –Conduct research activities for gap-assist work. –Develop initial version of cost benefit tool.
8 Next Generation 911 (NG911) Goal: Design a 9-1-1 system enabling the transmission of voice, data, or video from different communication devices, to the 9-1-1 call center and on to the emergency responder networks Approach High-level system architecture and migration plan for the Next Generation 9-1-1 system. Status –RFI completed - favorable response in quantity and quality. –Completed initial systems engineering analysis including the Concept of Operations. –Contract support acquired for systems engineering, outreach and project coordination. –Posted RFP pre-solicitation notice for NG9-1-1 system design. Plans for 2006 –Engage other Federal stakeholder agencies. –Complete and execute comprehensive outreach plan.
9 Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) Goal To provide the institutional guidance, operational capabilities, and ITS technical methods needed for effective ICM Systems. Status –Completed a Generic Concept of Operations (CONOPS) for release in May 2006 –Completing a Planning and Implementation Guide to assist in analyzing and implementing ICM strategies for a given corridor –Released a Request for Applications to select up to 8 Pioneer Sites (closes May 15) Plans for Remainder of 2006 –Select up to Eight Pioneer Sites. Award up to 8 cooperative agreements to develop local CONOPS and system requirements (year 1) From 8, select up to 4 sites for detailed analysis and modeling of ICM Strategies (year 2) From 8, select up to 4 sites for demonstration (year 3 to 5) –Begin development of additional analysis, modeling and simulation tools Modify existing tools to do “Corridor” analysis that are network benign and measure benefits for the operational strategies Identify common performance measures and data accuracy requirements –Conduct Webinars to Collect Stakeholder Input on the Generic Concept of Operations.
10 Mobility Services for All Americans (MSAA) Goal: Improve mobility and accessibility for all, including the transportation disadvantaged. Approach –Use ITS transit technologies to integrate and enable coordination of transportation services among public transportation and health and human service providers. Status –Released request for proposals (RFP) to seek local community partners to plan and design ITS-enhanced human service transportation models. –Selected an independent contractor team to provide direct technical support to the model planning and design demonstration sites. –Developed proposal evaluation plan and established Federal Interagency Proposal Evaluation Panel. Plans for 2006 –Select and partner with up to 10 local communities to plan and design coordinated human service transportation models utilizing ITS technologies. –Complete definition of measures to gauge program performance. –Launch a new web-based MSAA public forum and continue promotion of stakeholders outreach, participation and training.
11 Clarus Goal: Establish a nationwide road weather observation network. Approach –Integrate existing road weather sensors into a national network. Combine with other weather data for improved roadway-based forecasts.
