ODOT's Emerging Technologies Impact Assessment (ETIA) project was completed in May 2020. The
Phase 2 results report, and
Mobility as a Service white paper are now available online.
Advancements in computing power and miniaturization, communications and networking, and the increased volume of and access to data have enabled the development of transportation technologies with the potential to transform the transportation system and the way that Oregonians travel.
ODOT initiated the Emerging Technology Impact Assessment (ETIA) to consider how emerging transportation technologies such as Connected/Automated Vehicles (CV/Avs) and Mobility as a Service (MaaS) could specifically transform Oregon’s transportation system, address Oregon-specific transportation challenges, and evaluate the range of possible impacts for which ODOT should prepare.
This phase involves identification and analysis of key trends in emerging transportation technologies followed by an exploration of the implications of the trends at a qualitative level as viewed through a State of Oregon perspective.
This phase builds upon the work of phase 1 in order to develop a framework of alternative future scenarios for exploring a broader range of considerations in preparation of updates of the Oregon Transportation Plan (OTP) and Oregon Highway Plan (OHP). Phase 2 also involves external outreach to inform and engage stakeholders and garner understanding of regional priorities and issues to consider in defining the range of alternative future scenarios.
