The Intelligent Transportation Society of Maryland (ITSMD) is offering the training workshop, Connected Vehicles 201, on Wednesday, May 16, 2018 from 8 am to 3pm.
ITSMD, in collaboration with the State Highway Administration (SHA) and U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT), are targeting the training for local government transportation planners, engineers and managers, as well as those working at the state level. The training will be held in the OOTS Training Room at SHA’s Hanover Complex. It is free for public sector employees and offers at least five Professional Development hours. However, seating is limited to the first 70 registrants.
The purpose of this U.S. DOT course is to help transportation agencies that are beginning to plan implementation of a connected vehicle (CV) environment. The overall goal of the course is to teach participants how to develop an action plan in collaboration with regional partners to improve readiness for CV deployment.
Participants will learn more about the safety, mobility, and applications and will gain an overview of three CV pilot sites in Wyoming, New York City, and Tampa. They will also learn how to identify funding sources for CV projects. They will be made aware of recent activities supported by the ITS Joint Program Office and resources available from the CV research program sponsored by the U.S. DOT.
The workshop will also include a presentation by SHA updating attendees on the status of the CV initiatives, pilot and research projects being undertaken in Maryland.
Confirmed speakers for this course are:
Ray Murphy, ITS Specialist, US DOT/FHWA
Shawn Kimmel, Lead Associate, Booz Allen Hamilton
Joseph (Joey) Sagal, Director, Office of CHART & ITS Development, SHA
