In response to these concerns, Caltrans Division of New Technology, Material and Research contracted with the Institute of Transportation Studies at UC Davis to develop a curriculum to discuss advanced technology opportunities and challenges and how Caltrans might respond to them. In concert with ITS Berkeley and ITS Extension, the project "Transportation Technology in the 21st Century" was undertaken in May 1991. This report represents the final report for the project.
This curriculum represents an example usage of the final report of the project. The final report forms the core of the curriculum to which is added a specific schedule and an intended target audience. Mid-level engineers in the traffic operations area are targeted for this course which is designed for 2 1/2 days. Throughout the curriculum, there are notes regarding specific examples that may be used to illustrate important concepts. The examples are all drawn from a common test case: Advanced Traffic Management and Information System (ATMIS). The test case is used to illustrate more abstract concepts and to provide a more practical orientation for the course attendees.
