The Division for Technology Implementation (DTI) participates in the investigation of requirements, selection of vendor solutions, development of hardware and software solution components, systems integration, data collection, data analysis, performance analysis, and cost/benefit estimation. DTI leads outreach activities that join partners into consortia to collaboratively resolve the legal, policy, operational, and technical issues required to conduct an effective implementation. DTI has developed and maintained connected vehicle test bed environments including a cloud computing environment, roadside communications and localization equipment, dashboard applications for performance monitoring, and mobile reference applications. DTI has deployed these capabilities on closed test tracks and live operational environments on public roads. DTI also specializes in the development of customized web and mobile applications that are used for a variety of transportation research purposes.
VTTI is currently working on a project with the Department of Energy to quantify the effects of outdoor lighting that utilizes Solid State lighting (LEDs) on melatonin in humans.
Programs such as the Smart Work Zone system focus on protecting those who build and maintain our roadways. They help to keep us safe, so let’s do the same for them!
