Artificial Intelligence Opportunities for State and Local DOTs – A Research Roadmap

The National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) has identified a research team to develop a research roadmap that identifies and prioritizes research needs that will provide state and local DOTs with a better understanding of Artificial Intelligence (AI), what activities are suited for AI, and the potential ways AI could be applied. The roadmap will build upon existing research and be informed by outreach to the transportation community. The focus of this research is on AI applications for state and local DOTs, but the research should also be relevant to a wide variety of research organizations beyond NCHRP. It will serve to generate additional research ideas, and encourage coordination among research agencies.
