Overview[edit | edit source]
This encyclopedic report synthesizes information on the benefits, costs, extent of deployment, and lessons learned about Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) based on scans that have taken place across the country and around the world.
The 2011 update is based upon four related web-based databases, known collectively as the ITS Knowledge Resources (KRs). The Knowledge Resources were developed by the U.S. DOT's ITS Joint Program Office (JPO) evaluation program to support informed decision making regarding ITS investments by tracking the effectiveness of deployed ITS. The Knowledge Resources contain over fifteen years of summaries of the benefits, costs, lessons learned, and deployment status of specific ITS implementations, drawn primarily from written sources such as ITS evaluation studies, research syntheses, handbooks, and journals.
