The Architecture Reference for Cooperative and Intelligent Transportation (ARC-IT) provides a common framework for planning, defining, and integrating intelligent transportation systems (ITS). It 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 (local.iteris.com/arc-it).
Join the USDOT and the Architecture team for a webinar to learn about recent updates that have been made to the reference architecture for version 9.0. The objective of this webinar is to familiarize attendees with the latest ARC-IT content so that they can 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.
Kingsley Azubike, the Architecture, Standards, and Systems Engineering program manager at the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), will introduce the webinar and David Binkley will present the background of the architecture and its purposes. He will demonstrate how to access and use the latest website to learn about the architecture and its components and will also demonstrate new features of 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.
The target audience includes:
- 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
Objectives of this webinar are that participants 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.
