Transportation Logistics and Security Pilot Project

The Northern Kentucky University Office of Economic Initiatives, in partnership with the Transportation Authority of Northern Kentucky (TANK), will research, develop, and implement technology-based solutions for the purpose of enhancing the transportation authority's effectiveness and operational efficiency in the areas of logistics and security. Northern Kentucky University will study the use of wireless communication technology as a foundation for the Transportation Logistic and Security pilot project that address the needs of TANK. For this project, logistics is defined as the process of planning, implementing, and controlling the efficient flow of mass transit bus services through available routes. Security is defined as encompassing not only community protection related to Emergency First Response and Local Disaster Preparedness, but also to passenger safety. This research is a four-year endeavor.
