2017 ITS Arizona Annual Conference Update

This year’s ITS Arizona Annual Conference is just over six weeks away, so make sure you have it on your calendar for September 27-28 at the Mesa Convention Center.

The Draft Conference Program is now available, including details on the Smart Cities workshop on Day One, which will feature federal/local agencies and national consultants providing insights on Smart City visions, initiatives and innovative funding opportunities.  The submission deadlines for the Best of ITS Awards and Best ITS Arizona Student Research Paper have both been extended to Friday, August 25th, so there’s still time to submit yours for consideration. Full details are available on the Conference page.

We would like to thank all of the great Sponsors and Exhibitors who have already signed up for this year’s conference and encourage those who have not yet signed up to do so soon, as there’s only a small number of booths still available.  Just a reminder that booth assignments are made on a first-come first-served basis, with priority given to medal sponsors, so please consider upgrading your sponsorship level and your support of ITS Arizona.  Contributions may also be made to the Student Sponsorship Fund* to support registration for our student members.

Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Updates

The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) connected vehicle pilot locations — New York City; Wyoming; and Tampa, Florida — have launched new websites and videos dedicated to their connected vehicle deployments.

These three locations are leading the charge to deploy advanced wireless communications technology in their vehicles and on their roads in regions throughout the nation. The web sites provide information on each area’s unique transportation challenges, plans for connected vehicle deployment, deployment partnerships, promotional materials, and more.

To help the public visualize their research and to recruit participants, the pilot sites have also unveiled new videos showcasing their deployments. Wyoming and Tampa have each produced one video profiling their work, and New York City has produced three videos (links provided below). The videos, available on YouTube, provide a closer glimpse of how the pilots are using the life-saving communications technology to improve the safety, mobility and environmental sustainability of their roads.
