Because of the importance of safety, and the potential benefits for both the general public and the commercial vehicle industry of improving safety, the main goal of this project is to identify those commercial vehicle-related technologies that, through successful adoption, have had a positive impact...

 

This report details the findings of a study on the Utah Department of Transportation's (UDOT's) Advanced Traveler Information Systems (ATIS's). The purpose of the study was to determine the public's awareness and use of four main ATIS's, namely variable message signs (VMS), highway advisory radio (HAR)...

 
Detector Technology Evaluation (Nov 2003, MPC-03-154)

This paper evaluates detector technologies under a variety of criteria and provides user guidelines for detector technology selection. Information for the project came from applications of detector technologies, detector technology development, user manuals about specific detector devices, detector field-testing...

 

Working together with the North Dakota Department of Transportation, the objective of this project was to develop an application to perform the following: track highway signs with GPS, keep track of the last date a sign was modified, manage sign inventory and display this information in a geographical...

 

Sophisticated microsimulation models, such as MITSIM, INTEGRATION and WATSIM are useful tools to test the potential impact of new ITS technologies, such as route diversion variable message signs, in-vehicle drive alarms, and weather sensitive speed advisory signs. Once implemented, the modeling should...

 

This study was conducted to identify ITS technologies that transit systems are using, and particularly to aid in the progress of the Welfare to Work Initiative. Two different surveys were used to gather information for this study. First, a survey was developed and administered to identify transit systems...

 

This report contains a brief description of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and ITS technologies for Commercial Vehicle Operations (ITS/CVO). Second, it discusses previous literature regarding benefits of ITS/CVO for motor carriers, as well as managing the change due to technology. In addition...

 
Public Awareness Tools (Feb 1999, MPC-99-100)

An internet web site called the Public Awareness Web (PAW) was developed to provide information to the general public on transportation issues and give answers to frequently asked questions concerning transportation planning processes and challenges. This site is expected to improve UDOT/public relations...

 

This study examined LTL carriers in the mountain-plains region of North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, and Wyoming. Many rural communities rely on the LTL industry for freight movements in and out of the region. The level of LTL service in the mountain-plains region is unknown in a post regulated environment.

 

This report highlights a cooperative project between the Mountain-Plains Consortium universities and the Region 8 Technology Transfer Centers. Region 8 consists of six states: Wyoming, Montana, Colorado, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Utah. Each of these states has a Transportation Technology Transfer...
