U.S. DOT Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA) – Demonstration Project in Los Angeles and Gateway Cities
Test the FRATIS in the Los Angeles/Gateway Cities region in Southern California for up to a year to determine its effectiveness in: improving intermodal truck utilization; improving and automating the process in which containers are transferred between marine terminals and drayage companies; and from both of these objectives, achieve improvements in regional freight mobility and air quality.
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.
