2018/8/9: RTSMO CAV Subcommittee Mid-Year Meeting and More...
by Tony Kratofil, Michigan DOT

RTSMO CAV Subcommittee Members and Friends, 

On behalf of Virginia and myself, I just wanted to send a quick note in anticipation of the upcoming mid-year meeting to highlight some of sessions that may be of interest to you in regards to Connected and Automated Vehicles.  

Monday, August 27, 8:00 am – Noon:
National Dialogue on Highway Automation – this is one in a series of national discussions about the future of highway automation in the light of the development of CAV technology and applications and what that means for our transportation system.  Led by our friend John Corbin and FHWA, this is sure to be an interesting and lively discussion.

Tuesday, August 28, 10:30 am – Noon:
Joint Plenary/Hot Topics – will include a discussion on the Connected Automated Transportation Coalition, the latest evolution out of the V2I Deployment Coalition, with a greater focus on how the transportation infrastructure (physical and digital) needs to transition to meet the developments on the vehicle side and enable the anticipated safety and mobility benefits of a more connected and automated environment.

Tuesday, August 28, 2:00 pm -5:00 pm:
CTSO CAV Working Group - we do not plan to have a specific RTSMO CAV subcommittee meeting at the mid-year gathering, but rather will jointly meet with CAV Working Group of the AASHTO Committee on Transportation System Operations.  I’m still working with their co-chairs on how our interaction will go, but regardless, this is an opportunity for us to engage with other thought and action leaders in the CAV space.

Tuesday, August 28, 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm:
Host State Event: SPaT Challenge Corridor Demo – will provide an opportunity to see what Georgia DOT is doing to implement their SPaT Challenge applications.

I look forward to catching up with those of you who are able to join us for the mid-year meeting.  See you in Atlanta!


2018/4/19: New Committee Leadership Announced

Les Jacobson has fulfilled his two terms as Chair of the Regional TSMO Committee. TRB has selected Cathy McGhee, P.E. to take on the role of Chair, starting April 15, 2018.

Cathy has been an active member of the committee since 2006, when the committee transitioned from temporary status to a full standing committee. Over the last 6 years, Cathy served as Secretary. We are fortunate to have such a strong leader and advocate of Transportation Systems Management and Operations move into the leadership role.

Cathy currently serves as the Director of Research for the Virginia Transportation Research Council, a division of the Virginia Department of Transportation.
