Smart Infrastructure

ITS America advocates for federal surface transportation programs that recognize the added value of integrating technology into transportation infrastructure and services, and provides funding for the rapid deployment of intelligent transportation technologies.

ITS America Surface Transportation Broadband Policy

Providing national, state, and local broadband infrastructure that supports the implementation of intelligent transportation systems, including connected and automated vehicles (CAV) and cooperative automated transportation (CAT), to improve the safety, mobility, equity, and operational efficiency of our surface transportation system is critical to meet the demands of rural, urban and underserved communities.

ITS America’s Standing Advisory Committee on Smart Infrastructure

The Smart Infrastructure Standing Committee advocates for automated, connected, shared, electrified transportation and broadband policies and programs that support the rapid deployment of intelligent transportation technologies leading to safer, greener, smarter, and more equitable communities. Recently, the committee led the policymaking process to develop the association’s FAST Act reauthorization platform – Moving People, Data, and Freight – and its COVID-19 response legislation. Committee members work on innovative policies to protect infrastructure and transportation systems from cyber threats; technologies to improve roadway efficiency, reduce accidents, and facilitate the safe introduction of autonomous technologies into the transportation system; and policies that support the electrification of our nation’s roadways, transit, and freight systems. As COVID-19 continues to impact the nation’s transportation system, the committee will continue its advocacy for emergency assistance for the transportation sectors ITS America represents.
