    Annual Report 1999/2000
  • Abstract:
    The Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Institute is a University Transportation Center funded through the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21), the federal transportation bill passed in 1998. This funding continues the Institute’s efforts initiated under TEA-21’s predecessor, the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA). The Institute plans and conducts activities that further the mission of the United States Department of Transportation’s (USDOT’s) University Transportation Center program. That mission is to advance U.S. technology and expertise in the many disciplines that make up transportation through education, research, and technology transfer activities at university-based centers of excellence. The Institute’s activities are guided by its theme of enhancing the safety and mobility of road- and transit-based transportation through a focus on human-centered technology. To that end, the Institute unites technologists and those who study human behavior to ensure that Institute-developed technologies become tools that optimize human capabilities. This human-centered approach means that new developments in the core ITS technologies of computing, sensing, communications, and control systems will be used to approach significant safety and mobility problems with a fresh perspective. Additionally, the Institute addresses issues related to transportation in a northern climate and investigates technologies for improving the safety of travel in rural environments.
