ODOT's Emerging Technologies Impact Assessment (ETIA) final report, completed March 2019, is 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
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.
