Impacts of Connected Vehicles and Automated Vehicles on State and Local Transportation Agencies--Task-Order Support. Workforce Capability Strategies for State and Local Agencies

New technologies, such as connected vehicles, connected infrastructure, smart cities, and automated vehicles, are changing the landscape of the physical and digital worlds of transportation and redefining necessary skillsets to achieve successful deployment. These changing workforce needs for state and local agencies must be researched. Key research objectives include: (1) Understanding the array of training opportunities/resources currently available to state and local agencies, (2) Understanding the areas of incoming technologies that state and local agency personnel feel most comfortable/uncomfortable with, (3) Determining the new/anticipated skillsets that will be required of state and local agency personnel and which will require the most training, (4) Determining gaps between currently available training resources and necessary new skillsets, (5) Understanding the most impactful method of delivery/resource format for the needed new training materials, and (6) Understanding how to best evaluate the effectiveness, employee satisfaction, and return on investment of suggested workforce development strategies.
