Transportation Tech is the development and implementation of an online, on‐demand educational curricula for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and Connected Vehicle (CV) technology. Transportation Tech content is designed and developed to encourage students to choose careers in ITS as well as train current ITS and CV technicians in the field. Through customized portals, at the end of the Phase 2 grant, students and faculty will have access to at least sixteen cutting edge, engaging lessons and ITS technicians will be able to complete the full ITS Level 1 Certification and have access to 12 hours of core training classes, 56 hours of electives to choose from, and 60 hours of how‐to videos. Content for students and professionals will include special features on the New York City, NY and Laramie, WY ITS‐CV testbeds. Additional features designed for technicians include a trouble shooting forum, equipment database, and special resources and tools, including but not limited to phone applications. During the Phase 2 program, Transportation Tech will be commercially available within the first year and marketed through a robust combination of email newsletter updates (The Accelerator), social media advertisements, and distribution through trusted networks and in partnership with the FHWA Regional Workforce Centers.
