U.S. Department of Transportation releases the 2011 update to the Intelligent Transportation Systems Benefits, Costs, Deployment, and Lessons Learned Desk Reference

This new report presents information on the benefits, costs, deployment levels, and lessons learned regarding ITS deployment and operations obtained since the 2008 report.

The report 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, journal

The Intelligent Transportations Systems Joint Program Office’s (ITS JPO) research program focuses on the overall advancement of ITS through investments in emerging ITS technologies, as well as supporting the evaluation of deployed ITS.

ITS JPO is a program within the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Research and Innovative Technology Administration.
