The event also promoted the US DOT Smart City Challenge which will award one mid-sized city with up to $40 Million in funding to address population increases and growing demands on transportation infrastructure using data driven methods to create safe, reliable, and sustainable transportation options. This opportunity encourages academic, public, and private sector collaboration to design, test, and implement the technologies needed to address the growing challenges of urban transportation. As an exhibitor, the NTC@Maryland featured their research related to Smart City applications such as the development of smart phone apps for route and mode guidance, Integrated Corridor Management (ICM), connected vehicles, and active traffic management systems (ATMS).
