Recent research efforts, such as the Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) Analysis, Modeling, and Simulation (AMS) project, Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) 2 C10 project and SHRP2 L08 project, have demonstrated that existing AMS tools have limited capabilities to properly reflect the impacts of a proactive management approach on driver behavior through the full trip chain.
The objective of the Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) initiative is to demonstrate how intelligent transportation systems (ITS) technologies can efficiently and proactively manage the movement of people and goods in major transportation corridors.
U.S. DOT Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA) – Demonstration Project in Los Angeles and Gateway Cities
Test the FRATIS in the Los Angeles/Gateway Cities region in Southern California for up to a year to determine its effectiveness in: improving intermodal truck utilization; improving and automating the process in which containers are transferred between marine terminals and drayage companies; and from both of these objectives, achieve improvements in regional freight mobility and air quality.
The Federal government is engaged in several research projects to identify and develop the next generation of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) mobility applications. How do freight operations fit into the government’s research agenda?
Livability and sustainability are distinct concepts, although there is substantial overlap and they may be occasionally used interchangeably. Both notions are multifaceted, dynamic, flexible, and powerful.
