Free ITS Technical Assistance
Welcome to the ITS Video Library, a collection of videos that show how Intelligent Transportation
System (ITS) technologies are being used to solve the nation's transportation problems. The
ITS Professional Capacity Building (PCB) Program wants to help you learn about ITS technologies
and encourages you to explore the collection to learn how your peers are using ITS to solve
Connected vehicle research now underway aims to build a robust technical platform that will
enable the vision of a national, multi-modal transportation system featuring a connected transportation
environment among vehicles, the infrastructure, and passengers' portable devices. This connected
environment will leverage technology to maximize safety, mobility, and environmental performance.
This video discusses the basics of connected and automated vehicles, applications and technologies used in connected vehicle deployments, and the policy and technical issues public agencies face as they prepare for connected vehicles. Shelley Row presents.

These videos focus on short-term, mode-specific federal research programs that are expected
to further the USDOT's goal of
leveraging technology to maximize safety, mobility, and environmental performance. Learn how
to implement an integrated corridor in your area or maximize your public transportation dollars
through the use of advanced vehicle navigation and trip planning tools.
The ICM project proposes to implement ramp metering and incident management along I-80 from
the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge Toll Plaza in Alameda County to the Carquinez Bridge
in Contra Costa County. Sponsored by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans)
and the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC).
Amy Linden of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority talks about the market drivers and implementation of open payments in the New York City transit system.
ITS technologies provide the needed boost to coordinate transportation among human service
agencies for Mobility Services for All Americans.

An introduction to Washington State Department of Transportation's Active Traffic Management
ITS technologies are now everywhere. From Dynamic Message Signs (DMS) found throughout the
highway infrastructure, to automated fare collection in tolling and transit, ITS technologies
have made transportation safer, smarter, and greener. These videos show ITS in action across
the country and share lessons learned from the frontlines of implementation.
DalTrans' complete intelligent transportation system includes approximately 200 Texas Department
of Transportation cameras along more than 100 miles of roadway. In addition, commuters have
access to vital safety and real-time travel information through dynamic message signs, the
Internet at daltrans.org, or traffic reports they hear on the radio or they see on television.
Wyoming Department of Transportation's (WYDOT's) dynamic message signs help keep motorists
safe by giving them information on road conditions and other events. Featuring - Vince Garcia,
Manager ITS/GIS, WYDOT - Cheyenne
and Kevin Cox, ITS, WYDOT - Cheyenne.
Follow Bob, a fixed-route transit operator, as ITS technology works to automate many of his
manual tasks for a simplified workload, and on-board schedule adherence alerts help keep him
on time. See how an ITS solution integrates with technology on the bus, such as LED signs
and voice annunciators, to further enhance the transit experience for passengers.
Ramp meters are special traffic signals that regulate the rate at which vehicles enter the
freeway from the on-ramps. The meters help decrease traffic congestion by maximizing the flow
on I-435 between Metcalf Avenue and the Three Trails Memorial Crossing (formerly the Grandview
Triangle). They also enhance KC Scout's existing system of cameras, pavement sensors, and
electronic message signs.
Garrett Dawe, North Region ITS Coordinator/Pavement Management Engineer, introduces MDOT's
Road Weather Information System (RWIS). This video explains the use of networked Environmental
Sensor Stations (ESS) to monitor atmospheric and road surface conditions. The goal is to better
manage winter maintenance activities and provide more travel information to motorists.

The use of Intelligent Transportation Systems by the city of Surprise, AZ Transportation Management
Center is described.
These videos provide advanced transportation knowledge and education that set the foundation
for professionals to plan, procure, deploy, and maintain multiple ITS technologies in their
transportation system. Upgrade your skills by taking an online ITS course today.
