Commencing in February of 2020, the 3rd annual Transportation Technology Tournament was a joint effort of the ITS JPO Professional Capacity Building program and the National Operations Center of Excellence to help push the future workforce to understand the communications, teamwork, planning, and interdisciplinary skills required to work in the transportation industry. Nine participant teams were asked to work with a local or state DOT to identify a real-world challenge that DOT is facing and to use ITS technologies and transportation systems management and operations (TSMO) strategies to develop a solution or set of solutions to address that challenge.
