Proceedings from 12th AASHTO International Day, 2015 ITS World Congress, Bordeaux, France

For more than a decade beginning in Nagoya, Japan in 2004, AASHTO Day has taken place at the outset of the ITS World Congresses, attracting a wide array of outstanding speakers and participants to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing public agencies as they deploy technologies to transform our transportation system. This year, AASHTO has prepared proceedings from the Sunday morning convening for sharing and use not only by those who attending the event, but others from around the world who might benefit from the presentations and subsequent conversations that took place. The topic was Infrastructure readiness for connected and automated vehicles. This is a priority that public agencies around the world see as critical to help the traveling public safely navigate the transport options available to them in commuting to work, home, and to use their leisure time efficiently.

January 29th, 2014; 10:00AM – 11:00 AM PST; SSOM Webinar on Integrated Corridor Management
 
The AASHTO Sub-Committee on Systems Operations and Management (SSOM) is pleased to present a webinar series focused on the topic of “Integrated Corridor Management”.  As SSOM members discussed a wide variety of system operations focused initiatives at our 2013 Annual meeting, Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) was the topic of choice in terms of immediate relevance as States consider strategies to get the most out of their existing facilities.   This first webinar is intended to provide an overview of ICM, covering the basics of what this set of operational strategies represents, the types of objectives and benefits associated with various levels of implementation, and what it takes for successful sustained deployment.  We are fortunate to have Mr. Robert Sheehan of the Federal Highway Administration’s Office of Operations as our presenter for this first session.  Mr. Sheehan has had direct involvement in major ICM deployment efforts across the country and provides a wealth of knowledge and experience on this topic.
