Emerging Technologies and their Data: How Can They Help?
November 4@11:00 am to 4:00 pm EDT
This session will qualify for PDH credits for ITE Members.
With the advancements of telecommunications and image processing, new sources of data have emerged in the transportation field. These types of data can supplement or replace the traditional data sources which have been used for decades in the industry. The main purpose of this training is to introduce the emerging data sources/technologies to the audience, identify the challenges associated with these data sources, and provide guidance on how they can be used to support decision making.
In this training, three specific technologies will be covered, including: video conflict analysis, connected vehicle data, and cellular activity data. For each technology, the following aspects will be presented:
- Describe how the data is collected/generated;
- Explain the output data and how to interpret the data;
- Show data pitfalls;
- Describe main advantages of using each technology;
- Discuss how these data types can be incorporated in transportation engineering; and
- Provide practical applications.
Upon completion of the workshop, participants should be able to:
- Understand the potential applications of the emerging technologies in traffic engineering.
- Describe the capabilities and limitations of the technologies in transportation planning, traffic operations, and road safety projects.
The target audience for this proposed training are transportation professionals at all levels, working for public and private sector.
A half-day virtual session.
