ITS architectures map the flow of information between communications, transportation, and organizational assets, and they incorporate inputs from cross-functional stakeholders. Cambridge Systematics has extensive experience developing small- and large-scale ITS architectures to integrate ITS applications and services. We are experts in all aspects of architecture planning, including establishing the operational concept, determining functional requirements and system interfaces, conducting standards identification and applicability, and determining funding-based project sequencing.
Cambridge Systematics is a leader in the development and use of simulation models for the analysis of transportation investments. We assist clients in modeling multimodal transportation; integrating macroscopic, mesoscopic, and microscopic models; and developing new techniques and guidance for simulation.
Agencies need forward-thinking guidance and ongoing support in implementing and managing complex transportation systems, from Intelligent Transportation Systems and travel demand models to asset management information systems and beyond. Cambridge Systematics plays a key role, through support contracts and on-call arrangements, in helping clients to address challenges and make use of systems-generated information for effective decision-making.
Improved data business planning is a pressing concern for transportation agencies, especially in response to Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21). We help clients address challenges with data availability and integration, transparency and accountability, and processes and systems. Our expertise in collecting, analyzing, integrating and organizing data gives agency leaders the information necessary to make critical decisions. And—because we are planning and policy experts as well as technicians—our solutions account for future demands along with immediate needs.
Intelligent transportation systems (ITS) and operational improvements have become central to transportation management. Cambridge Systematics leads in the development and application of ITS, and our team has built some of the field's most extensive ITS analysis, planning and evaluation tools. Our award-winning ITS work helps agencies make better use of today’s infrastructure, conserving scarce resources for the future.
A forward-thinking approach to operations planning is essential in transportation systems management. Cambridge Systematics leads in developing strategies and applying technologies that improve highway, transit and freight operations performance. We help clients identify and prioritize needs, build consensus among stakeholders, and create detailed plans to ensure continued success.
