About the Emerging and Enabling Technologies Research Area

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) recognizes the need to advance the adoption and use of emerging practices and technologies for transportation—particularly, where they play a key role in providing public benefits to Americans. The ITS JPO will coordinate and conduct investigations and exploratory research into emerging technologies across government, academia, and the private sector. This research will provide the U.S. DOT with a significant understanding of the potential benefits and disruptions these technologies could represent to the transportation system.
