DOT research arm releases ITS strategic plan

Posted on January 8, 2010

The U.S. Department of Transportation's Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA) released the new, five-year Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Strategic Research Plan.

The plan explores the potentially transformative capabilities of wireless technology to make surface transportation safer, smarter and greener and ultimately enhance livability for Americans.

The core of the research plan is a program called IntelliDriveSM, a multimodal initiative to support safety, mobility and environmental enhancements by providing safe, interoperable wireless connectivity between vehicles (autos, buses, trucks, rail, and other fleets), infrastructure and passengers' devices.
