Summary Information

The Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Section of the Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) Office of Traffic, Safety and Technology (OTST) performs research, demonstrations, and operational tests of ITS transportation solutions.

  • Deploy and evaluate the accuracy of two arterial time estimation methods using real-time data.
  • Using one or both systems, deploy actual real-time arterial travel time messages on dynamic message signs and on a test website
