EC2: Intelligent Transportation System for Traffic Operations


Use of advanced techniques from Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) for better traffic operations is gaining popularity in recent years. Advancements in data collection and analysis helps to improve operational efficiency of roadway infrastructure. The primary purpose of this course is to disseminate relevant information that will help practitioners and researchers to adopt cutting edge developments in ITS and its use in operational analysis for efficient transportation system.


  • Introduction to traffic operations and ITS
  • Use of ITS to enhance traffic operations
