Submit a Problem Statement for the Transportation Technology Tournament

Exciting news! The annual Transportation Technology Tournament is kicking off soon and we need your help gathering problem statements for the student groups. 
Throughout the tournament, these groups, under the mentorship of an academic advisor, take on the challenge of solving transportation problems using technology. The students craft a concept of operations that addresses the given problem, and the finalists showcase their work at the ITE Annual meeting, where a winner is selected by a panel of industry judges.
This year, as we lay the groundwork for expanding the tournament, your help in collecting real-world problem statements is invaluable. We're looking for problem statements that:
  • Focus on solving a safety issue (ideally, but not mandatory – safety is this year’s theme, but we are open to other good ideas).
  • Be solvable by a technology.
  • Include data that the students can manipulate and include in their ConOps.
Should you choose to submit a problem statement, the only request is for you to meet with the student group at least once (virtually or in person) when the tournament begins to provide any necessary background information. We also encourage periodic check-ins to witness their progress and address any questions they have. By submitting a problem statement, you not only contribute to the tournament and the student’s learning of ITS, but also gain a well-thought-out document that could solve your problem. For example, the 2023 winner, FIU, created a decision support tool for the City of Boca Raton that statistically identifies and groups traffic patterns throughout the year to make enhancements to traffic signal control operations. Their ConOps, available here, has many real-world applications for both the City and students.
Please submit any problem statements or any questions by December 31st to
