CATT is in the Examiner
The Examiner, a Washington, D.C. newspaper recently mentioned the University of Maryland’s Center for Advanced Transportation Technology (CATT) in the article “D.C. region to coordinate on traffic, transit information.” The article discussed CATT’s Regional Integrated Transportation Information System (RITIS) and how this transportation database is changing the way traffic information is being coordinated. RITIS fuses, translates, and standardizes data obtained from multiple agencies in the region in order to provide an enhanced overall view of the region’s transportation network. Read the full article.
The Center for Advanced Transportation Technology (CATT) at the University of Maryland, College Park was created in order to respond to the significant changes brought about by increasing use of advanced technologies in the transportation field. The CATT provides a bridge between the intelligent transportation systems (ITS) community, the information technology community, and other disciplines essential to the successful application of ITS. A permanent staff of ITS professionals and affiliated faculty of the Department of Civil Engineering supports the CATT. All offer extensive knowledge and experience in the areas of ITS technology, traffic engineering and control, systems analysis, and operations research. CATT provides an organizational umbrella for four major initiatives including CapWIN, CATT Lab, CITE, and MD T2 Center.
