Intelligent Transportation and Traffic Operations

The convergence of technological innovations and societal changes is revolutionizing transportation, providing the potential for dramatically improved safety and mobility while simultaneously reducing costs and environmental impacts.

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) have always been about applying the latest sensor, communications and information processing technologies to improve transportation. Today that includes Big Data, advanced data analytics, machine learning, the Internet of Things, and low-cost sensors, to enable connected and automated vehicles, Mobility as a Service, and Smart Cities.

With over 25 years of experience in ITS, working at the intersection of technology and policy, McGurrin Consulting provides a range of services ranging from proposal development to detailed analysis to strategic and business guidance to both the public and private sector.
