Reimagining Transportation

COVID-19 has fundamentally changed our nation’s transportation system, from personal mobility to delivery of goods.  As we emerge from this pandemic, what does transportation look like in the United States? We have an opportunity now to help shape a Safer, Greener, Smarter future by making smart investments that can have a positive impact on mobility, commuting patterns, supply chain and delivery of goods. 

Join us at ITS America 2021 in Charlotte, North Carolina as we reimagine transportation and discuss how technology is a foundational piece of a new 21st century transportation system. This event will bring together the entire intelligent transportation community for (4) days of thought-provoking education, networking, technical tours and demonstrations exploring products, emerging technologies and solutions that will enable a better future transformed by intelligent mobility.  Join other transportation leaders and influencers as we discuss and explore the deployment of intelligent transportation technologies that saves lives, improves mobility, promotes sustainability, and increases efficiency and productivity – “Reimagining Transportation”

ITS America Meets with Biden-Harris Transition Officials

ITS America President & CEO Shailen Bhatt

Last month, Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States and Kamala Harris is our country’s first woman and woman of color to hold the office of vice president. As a candidate, Biden released Build Back Better, a plan to invest in infrastructure, jumpstart the economy, and address issues like climate change, safety, and equity. Many of the priorities outlined in this plan closely align with ITS America’s priorities. 

Spotlight on Charlotte

Earlier this year, North Carolina hosted the country’s first autonomous air taxi flight and the first emergency drone operation for a hospital pandemic response – the North Carolina Department of Transportation delivered critical equipment and medical supplies in the Charlotte area. It was also first in the country to use drones to monitor flooding, road conditions and traffic impact after Hurricane Florence in 2018. On the rail line between Charlotte and Raleigh, infrared cameras help with tailoring safety efforts to prevent people from getting hit by trains.
