National Rural ITS & ITS Arizona Annual Conference & Exhibit

National Rural ITS & ITS Arizona Annual Conference & Exhibit
The conference will provide participants a one-stop resource focusing on Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) implementation in local communities and the opportunity to hear new and thoughtful perspectives from a wide variety of ITS topics. ITS improves transportation safety and mobility and enhances productivity by integrating advanced communication technologies into vehicles and infrastructure.

This four-hour workshop is the third in a series of Connected Vehicle (CV) courses offered by the ITS JPO Professional Capacity Building program. CV201 broadens each participant's understanding of the technology and systems engineering activities required to support a CV environment through the use of activities and examples from the CV Pilot sites and other ITS deployments. The workshop introduces the impacts of CVs on transportation planning and funding, details necessary information and steps enabling development of a meaningful Concept of Operations, explains how to develop System Requirements for a CV deployment and discusses how to bring together resources, documentation and findings to develop a Comprehensive Deployment Plan. The workshop also introduces tools and resources to help empower organizations developing CV deployments, including the Connected Vehicle Reference Implementation Architecture (CVRIA), communications technologies and standards and the Security Credential Management System (SCMS) as a method for protecting security and privacy. CV201 practically applies the concepts introduced in the previous two courses (CV101 and CV 102) in a way beneficial for organizations interested in CV deployments.

The National Signal Phase and Timing (SPaT) challenge goal is to encourage state or local agencies throughout the United States to deploy Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) infrastructure with broadcasts of Signal Phase and Timing (SPaT) at approximately 20 intersection locations in each state by January 2020, typically in a corridor or network setting. Working with industry leaders through the Cooperative Automated Transportation (CAT) Coalition, the SPaT Challenge Tactical Working Group with the National Operations Center of Excellence (NOCoE) is providing this workshop to inform, communicate and share knowledge to the rural ITS community. The workshop will provide an overview of the challenge, resources that are available (concept of operations, lessons learned, design, procurement and implementation) and ways for participants to be able to encourage the deployment of Connected Vehicle applications in their organizations by starting with the broadcast of SPaT and MAP messages.

The Maricopa County Department of Transportation, Arizona Department of Transportation and the University of Arizona have established a test bed in Anthem, Arizona to operationally field test connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technologies. The tour will showcase the connected vehicle technologies deployed at the test bed and demonstrate integrated transit, emergency and freight vehicle prioritization applications at traffic signals through communication between connected vehicles and Systematically Managed ARTerial (SMART) traffic systems to reduce delays and improve safety. The tour will also feature the demonstration of a smartphone pedestrian application that informs pedestrians when to cross, and provides alerts that support the user to remain aligned within the crosswalk based on real-time traffic signal information.

Stemming from the FHWA Every Day Counts initiative, Smarter Work Zones (SWZ) offer tools for effective traffic management during construction and are necessary to ensure motorist and worker safety, minimize travel delays, maintain access to local businesses and residences, and complete road work on time. This workshop will present technology applications such as queue management and speed management that involve deployment of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) for dynamic management of work zone traffic. Queue management systems, especially when coupled with real-time traveler information strategies, can warn drivers to a line of vehicles ahead caused by a work zone so they can slow down safely. Speed management solutions, especially variable speed limit (VSL) systems, dynamically manage work zone traffic based on real-time conditions such as congestion and weather. Combining VSL with automated enforcement can increase driver compliance with displayed speed limits. Both queue and speed management use a range of technologies for detection, including Bluetooth® sensors and probe vehicles. In addition, this workshop will provide an overview of the Work Zone Impacts and Strategies Estimator (WISE) software as well as other key aspects of different types of SWZ technology applications such as: Dynamic Lane Merge, Incident Management, Entering/Exiting Construction Vehicle Notification, and Performance Measurement.

The Maricopa County DOT Transportation Management Center and the Arizona DOT Transportation Operations Center are within a short distance of each other. This tour brings the opportunity to visit both for a behind the scenes look at how transportation and public safety are managed in a real time environment. Tour participants will hear about the operational approach to managing area transportation systems, an overview of the funding mechanisms and future plans.
