UNC Charlotte is hosting a workshop to share outcomes and present findings from research funded by the United States Department of Transportation through The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Research and Technology (OST-R). The day-long workshop will include four sessions, each 75 minutes in length. These sessions will cover the following topics.

1) Comparative evaluation of technologies and sources of travel time data
2) Reliability-based performance measures and level-of-service - How are they related? Which one should we use? Decision support and visualization tools?
3) AVL units and transit system reliability
4) Effect of incidents on transportation system performance - What is the effect over space and time? Visualization tools and how can they help practitioners and system users?
5) Performance assessment and traffic condition monitoring – Session with presentations by city of Charlotte, North Carolina DOT and Las Vegas Freeway and Arterial System of Transportation (FAST)

The goal of the workshop is not just to share information but serve as a platform for open discussion on incorporating travel time and reliability performance measures in to the transportation planning process.

Registration is free for participants (limited number of seats available).

Earn up to 4 PDHs!
