  • Abstract:
    State DOT research programs are applied research programs, historically focused on materials and structures. In the last several years, the pace and nature of FDOT’s research program have evolved. Increased emphasis on implementation and performance, along with accelerating technology cycles, have placed greater demands on the program to innovate, partner, monitor sometimes hard-to-find or mountainous amounts of relevant activity, and implement and measure outcomes. The theme of this fifth peer exchange was to discuss state DOT research roadmaps in the contexts of national agenda/activity and emerging technologies—to explore how a program can work to be aware, agile, and relevant in this environment. The report follows the format of the panel and working sessions for the first two days of the exchange (the agenda is presented in appendix A). Three panel sessions were held on day one, focusing on national activity, university and industry activity, and state DOT activity, respectively. The afternoon working session focused on the concept of a transportation research roadmap. The goal of the first half of day two was to workshop and synthesize the ideas generated from a presentation on the FDOT ROADS (Reliable Open Accurate Data Sharing) initiative and its implications for research data needs and data creation. The afternoon of day two was devoted to emerging technologies, typified by, but not limited to, automated and connected vehicle issues, and, in the context of the previous sessions, with the goal of developing recommendations for program improvement. Exchange presentations may be found in appendices B and C.
