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, I have experience providing a range of services ranging from strategic and program planning to proposal development to detailed analysis, for both the public and private sector.
