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. The annual report of the Mn/DOT OTST ITS Section’s funded activities for the 2010 fiscal year describe the results of deployed and ongoing ITS projects.
Two primary benefits are identified with this technology:
- Demonstrating the use of Bluetooth technology for obtaining cost-effective real-time and accurate travel time along arterials.
- Demonstrating how travel time may be used to measure performance of arterial traffic management and operations.
