Message from the Chair

By Mr. John Lower posted 06-27-2014 03:43 PM


Our M&O/ITS area-of-practice technical Council membership provides opportunities to gain practical application "know-how", and opportunities to be instrumental in delivering products that actively contribute to the body of knowledge in our profession.  A fine example of this is the “Emerging Challenges and Opportunities of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles” presentation prepared by our Council members.  High speed internet is recommended for viewing this presentation, which can be accessed at

It sets the table for “Micro-volunteer” opportunities for you to present this at your local ITE meetings, to fulfill our Council Mission “to promote dialogue and innovation in deployment of transportation solutions that maximize the use of existing infrastructure to benefit society, and to engage in activities that expand the professional/practitioner capacity and further develop the M&O/ITS discipline”. 

Please consider speaking with your Chapter officers to use the material at a local meeting to raise awareness among ITE members.  Anyone is welcome to view and share the material, and constructive feedback on content and delivery would be appreciated by the committee. Please use the ITE Community Page for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles.

Connected and Autonomous Vehicles are just one of the hot topics identified by our members. Please use our M&O/ITS Community Page to provide our Chapter with members’ suggestions for products that should be developed to assist our profession in solving other identified hot topics of:

  • Communications Needs in the Next 5 Years

  • New Technologies

  • Turning Data into Performance Measures for Financial Decision Making

  • Performance Measures for Detection
