ARC-IT Version 8.1 Released
ARC-IT Version 8.1 was released several months after this webinar. ARC-IT Version 8.1 is a major release of the National ITS Architecture that fully defines and upgrades the four architecture views that were initially defined in ARC-IT 8.0. ARC-IT merges, unifies, and enhances Version 7.1 of the National ITS Architecture and Connected Vehicle Reference Implementation Architecture (CVRIA), Version 2.2. Learn more.

T3 Webinars are brought to you by the Professional Capacity Building (PCB) Program of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (U.S. DOT) Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (ITS JPO). References in this webinar to any specific commercial products, processes, or services, or the use of any trade, firm, or corporation name is for the information and convenience of the public, and does not constitute endorsement, recommendation, or favoring by the U.S. DOT.


The Architecture Reference for Cooperative and Intelligent Transportation (ARC-IT) provides a common framework for planning, defining, and integrating intelligent transportation systems. It is a mature product that reflects the contributions of a broad cross-section of the ITS community (transportation practitioners, systems engineers, system developers, technology specialists, consultants, etc.). All of the content of the Architecture is available on one website (http://local.iteris.com/arc-it/).

Join the U.S. DOT and the Architecture team for a webinar to learn about the integration of the National ITS Architecture, version 7.1 with the Connected Vehicle Reference Implementation Architecture (CVRIA) into one reference architecture. The objective of this webinar is to familiarize attendees with the ARC-IT content so that they apply the architecture and its toolset to develop, update, and maintain regional architectures as well as apply the ARC-IT concepts to support systems engineering efforts on ITS projects.


Steve Sill, the Architecture and Standards program manager will introduce the webinar.

David Binkley will present the background of the architecture and its purposes. He will also demonstrate how to access and use the website to learn about the architecture and its components. Additionally, David will introduce the two software tools that have been developed to apply the architecture to regions and projects: Regional Architecture Development for Intelligent Transportation (RAD-IT) and Systems Engineering Tool for Intelligent Transportation (SET-IT).

The webinar will end with an online Question and Answer session.

Learning Objectives

You will:

  • Learn about ARC-IT, including its background, its components, and its application to regions and projects.
  • Have an opportunity to provide feedback on ARC-IT and its tools through direct feedback with the Architecture team.

Target Audience

  • Planning and engineering professionals with an interest in or responsibility for the support, development, use, and maintenance of the regional or statewide ITS architecture
  • Project developers and Systems Engineers responsible for designing and implementing ITS projects
  • Public and Private Sector representatives involved in ITS planning, implementation and/or operations
  • State, Local, Federal, and international government representatives involved in ITS planning, implementation and/or operations
