Department of Transportation (DOT) executives in charge of intelligent transportation deployment decisions will participate in a DOT Roundtable on Sunday, June 12, 3:00-4:45 pm, at McEnery Convention Center as part of ITS America 2016 San Jose.
These leaders, from across the United States, will discuss their states’ experiences, successes, failures, challenges, and lessons learned in launching ITS projects while, on broader scale, endeavouring to prepare their state’s infrastructure to meet and support tomorrow’s ITS mobility demands.
