Assessing road user charges using GIS and GPS technologies
Researchers at the ITS Institute are currently at the center of an effort to evaluate and refine ITS technologies that will enable real-time assessment of road user charges based on actual road use, including road type and jurisdiction, with other assessment parameters to be added in the future.

Interactive simulations enhance ITS education, outreach
ITS Laboratory staff are working on tools to give researchers, students, and eventually the public access to advanced computer-generated traffic simulation systems.
