Lesson Learned

Recognize that rapid technological advances are taking place in the ITS industry when selecting specific ITS technologies.

Defining operational and implementation strategies requires reviewing, documenting, and evaluating the state-of-the-art of the available system components and technologies. This includes their system interaction, interconnection, and integration capabilities, life-cycle costs, and O&M considerations. Then, specific technologies should be applied to short-term or Early Winner projects only.

It is important that the planners recognize that rapid technological advances are taking place in the ITS industry, temper recommendations accordingly, and ensure that selected technologies are consistent with the Regional ITS Architecture.
