ITS Roads is a team of engineers and innovators who integrate cutting-edge technology to build new systems for improved mobility. From concept design to system operation, our team works on projects to reduce travel delay, improve roadway safety, and curb harmful emissions.

Who We Are

Bridging Network and Transportation Infrastructure Using Data-Driven Technology

We provide engineering, design, consulting, and oversight services for various commercial groups to create innovative solutions, overhaul legacy systems, and extend product lifecycles. Federal policymakers rely on our experts to craft technical standards, security best practices, and policies for interoperability. State and local DOTs hire ITS Roads for analysis of current systems and Connected and Automated Vehicle roadmaps for data-driven transportation network optimization. From concept design to system operation and maintenance, our staff understands the full technology lifecycle and our solutions emphasize performance and reliability. Integrating data collection, processing, communication, and automation components, we build robust systems that advance the state of the art.

Our Services

Technology and connectivity should be a boon, not a burden. Whether a government agency or commercial entity, let ITS Roads engineers and planners help you overcome technical hurdles to success.

Systems Integration

Our systems engineers have decades of experience in the design, deployment, testing, operation, and maintenance of complex, large-scale transportation systems and custom, state-of-the-art prototypes. Our team understands the importance of system lifecycle during project design phases to ensure the delivery of robust products. Using modular tools and agile design principles, our solutions are easy to maintain, upgrade, and expand over time to keep up with rapidly changing technologies. Our team is equipped to provide the following support services:

  • 360° IT Support, including design and integration of all hardware and supporting system as well as software installation and management across the entire product lifecycle
  • Operation and maintenance of systems with disaster recovery solutions to ensure full-scale redundancy of all system and transaction data availability
  • System and Network Administration
  • Software System Requirements Development and Tracking
  • System Testing — Development and implementation of robust test plans with detailed test cases to support on-going development and system updates, including software module testing, unit testing, integration and regression testing, as well as final system and performance testing

Connected Vehicles

Our expertise in vehicle and infrastructure connectivity improves traffic operations and enhances automated vehicle capabilities. Our background in federal research and current work in state and local pilot deployments make us a strong CV deployment team in a new and quickly growing market. Our team can provide the following services:

  • Architecture and Design of CV Environments
  • CV Infrastructure Design, Deployment, Testing, Operation, and Maintenance
  • Application Development, Prototyping, and Implementation
  • Instrumentation of CV-equipped Vehicles

Data & Network Services

Data and network services are a key component of all ITS Roads’ work and are critical to all new technologies. Many traditional engineering disciplines are being overhauled to incorporate streamlined data and high-speed networks – with many applications demanding high-security implementations. With an emphasis on cyber-security and protection of critical assets, our staff has more than 20 years of experience building and managing data centers, enterprise networks, as well as both custom and turnkey solutions for data and network management. Our team can provide the following services:

  • Needs Assessment
  • Network Architecture Design
  • Network Implementation and Administration
  • Network Monitoring and Maintenance
  • Cloud-based Infrastructure
  • Data Collection, Storage, Processing, Analyzing, and Archiving
  • Security Operations
  • Risk Assessment and Vulnerability Analysis
  • IT Policy Development

Policy

Federal and state transportation officials rely on ITS Roads for strategic policy development and long-term planning for Intelligent Transportation Systems and Connected/Automated Vehicles. Ranging from technical standards for hardware to operational security guidelines, our published work established the early framework for the original federal Connected Vehicle pilot deployments and our continued work guides state and local deployments. The US Government Accountability Office (GAO) cited our work in an early assessment of vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) deployment, and our on-going federal contracts include work on federal deployment guidelines. ITS Roads staff work on:

  • Standards Development
  • Guidelines for Interoperability
  • Security Best Practices
  • Long-term Planning and Roadmap Development

Consulting

ITS Roads applies the same agile work principles to consulting as our engineering projects; empowering small, cross-functional teams to meet strategic goals. Our extensive experience allows us to leverage market and industry knowledge to maximize the visibility and impact of our client work. Our projects utilize on-going performance measurement to enable continuous improvement and early detection of problems. As a small firm, ITS Roads provides our clients with undivided attention and emphasizes the ‘do it right the first time’ philosophy to avoid re-work, raise quality standards, and optimize team output. Our teams offer the following consulting services:

  • Project Management and Oversight
  • Market Assessments and Gap Analysis
