About this paper
Funded in 1956, the US transportation system isn't the same one that will carry our cars, trucks and more into the 21st century. Today's state departments of transportation are charged with keeping our roads safe, reliable and accessible with fewer resources. This paper describes how using data more efficiently helps state DOTs form a holistic view of the transportation system to not only solve today's problems, but to troubleshoot a wide variety of usage scenarios and make smarter plans for the future. It uses specific traffic conditions in the Bay Area as examples of how predictive analytics and integrating data from other city departments can help state departments of transportation make better-informed decisions.
