Transit ITS Standards Education and Outreach

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has sponsored an extensive Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) standards outreach and training program to promote awareness and usage of ITS transit standards, including Transit Communication Interface Profiles (TCIP). This project is a continuation of the FY 2000 project to develop three training courses for transit ITS standards. The purpose of the project is to deliver three sets of courses based on vehicle area networks, incorporating transit communications interface profiles into legacy systems, and specifying ITS standards in procurement documents. During this project, a set of four courses will be delivered three times. The courses are targeted to transit decision makers and implementers regarding the Transit Communication Interface Profiles standards and vehicle area network standards. This project supports outreach and educational activities to ensure that transit ITS projects are compatible with the national architecture requirements. ITS standards define how various system technologies and components interconnect and interact within an overall framework. Project is funded under the National ITS Program, administered by the Department's ITS Joint Program Office.
