At the Annual Meeting of the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE), a competition between ITE student member teams is conducted. It is known as the ITE Collegiate Traffic Bowl Grand Championship. The objectives of the ITE Collegiate Traffic Bowl are to encourage students to become more active members in the Institute, to enhance their knowledge of the traffic/transportation engineering and planning profession and of the Institute itself, and to strengthen the programs of the ITE student chapters. This community group will serve to provide information regarding the ITE Collegiate Traffic Bowl program.

In September 2015, the project was restarted to complete the remaining tasks of the original PMP, but with updated milestone dates. The ITS cabinet working group, operating under the direction of the ATC Joint Committee, will be holding working group meetings and teleconferences to complete this work. Siemens Industry Inc. has been retained under contract to ITE to provide consultant services to the working group for preparation of the V2 standard. This remaining effort picked up the prior work completed by ConSysTec (Bruce Eisenhart), Pillar Consulting (Ralph Boaz), and Adaptive Solutions, Inc. (James Kinnard) at Develop Design Content (ID 51) of the PMP, through the completion of the V2 standard. While the project was suspended, volunteer efforts by several manufacturers have resulted in the availability of Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) subassemblies that will be considered in the remaining standards development, and adopted if found to meet the project Requirements traceable to the original User Needs. Multiple but differing COTS subassemblies will be evaluated using a prior survey of ITS Owner/Operator Non-Functional Requirement (NFR) rankings, such as Reliability, Operational Safety, Modularity, etc. COTS subassemblies with higher NFR rankings will adopted over similar but differing COTS subassemblies.As this project unfolds, this web site will be updated with working drafts, user comments, meeting minutes, meeting agendas and other important information.

The purpose of this standard is to specify the protocols and data definitions to allow a TMC to:• Monitor the operational status of the RSU, including the status of applications and processes;• Configure the RSU to interface with other components in a connected vehicle environment, including connected vehicles, a traffic signal controller, the Security Credential Management System (SCMS), and other connected devices (e.g., smart phones);• Command the RSU to perform specific functions, such as collecting data or logging events.a. The USDOT Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Joint Program Office (JPO) is sponsoring the work;b. The Standard Development Organizations (SDOs) oversees the development; c. The consulting team is contracted to perform the work; andd. The consultants, manufacturers, and public transportation professionals participate in the NTCIP Joint Committee (JC) and Working Groups (WGs)

A large proportion of crashes at roundabouts involve cyclists. For Victoria, Australia, the proportion of reported injury crashes is about 25%. (Source: VicRoads CrashStats 2005-2009). In Melbourne inner suburban local government areas, the proportion is about 50%. The purpose of this community is to explore designs and strategies to reduce this statistic.
This community exists to foster research, share case studies and collaboration on the planning and evaluation of transportation demand management (TDM). TDM is any action or set of actions intended to influence the intensity, timing and spatial distribution of vehicle demand for the purpose of reducing the impact of traffic, managing parking needs, reducing greenhouse gasses, and enhancing mobility options
