The National Operations Center of Excellence (NOCoE) and the U.S. DOT ITS JPO's Professional Capacity Building (PCB) Program are hosting the 7th annual competition for students to work directly with public agencies to solve real-world transportation problems utilizing ITS and TSMO solutions. Visit the tournament website here for more information.
This webinar will provide prospective teams and participating agencies with more information on the value of the tournament, the expected benefits of participating and details on the tournament process.
The tournament will start in early 2024 when student teams will assemble to work with a State or local DOT, MPO, or transit agency to define a transportation problem. After submitting an initial contest application identifying the team and the problem, students will work with academic advisors to learn about potential ITS and TSMO solutions via online training programs outlined below. Teams will then utilize their experience, education, and new coursework to develop a solution or suite of solutions to directly address the originally defined problem. Students will submit their solutions via a proposal. Finalist teams will develop a presentation and then participate in a live event at the ITE Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, PA from July 20 - July 23, 2024. Teams will give a presentation in front of a panel of judges made up of leaders in the ITS and TSMO community. One team will then be selected as the 2024 Transportation Technology Tournament Winner.
