The Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI) will assist in a multi-million dollar Federal Highway Administration project that provides states and regional agencies with data and tools to better manage their roadways.
Led by the University of Maryland’s Center for Advanced Transportation Technology Laboratory and transportation analytics company INRIX, TTI will help integrate INRIX data with road characteristics and traffic counts collected by state DOTs. KMJ Consulting, Inc., is also a partner and will triage customer support and aid in project management.
The project team will take over management of the National Performance Management Research Data Set (NPMRDS) beginning next month. NPMRDS includes data collected from GPS-enabled mobile devices such as smartphones and navigation devices to highlight high-congestion areas and other transportation information so that state agencies can improve mobility.
As part of the five-year project, user-friendly web-based tools will be developed and maintained so that DOTs and metropolitan planning organizations can easily access the information.
