TRB Webinar: The Making of a Smart Airport: Preparing for the Internet of Things May 22, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 0.00 1.50 0.00 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, May 22, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features research from the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Research Report 191: A Primer to Prepare for the Connected Airport and the Internet of Things.

The Internet of Things (IoT), as defined by the International Telecommunications Union, is “a global infrastructure for the information society, enabling advanced services by interconnecting (physical and virtual) things based on existing and evolving interoperable information and communication technologies” (i.e., connecting devices together in new ways through the Internet). IoT may generate new customer-serving and revenue-generating opportunities at airports, optimize airport operations, and create efficiencies that could impact various stakeholders. This webinar will explain these potential benefits, describe the barriers and limitations to IoT implementation and how they may be overcome, and provide an understanding of current practices and lessons learned.

This webinar is sponsored by the Airport Cooperative Research Program. There is no fee to attend this webinar; however, sign into MyTRB.org to view registration information.

TRB Webinar: Continuous Deflection for Comprehensive Pavement Assessments May 30, 2019 01:00 PM - 02:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Thursday, May 30, 2019, from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM ET to discuss the applications of continuous pavement deflection. The ability to collect structural capacity information at traffic speeds is changing the way agencies evaluate their pavement needs. This webinar will explore how agencies may more effectively conduct pavement assessments. Presenters will also compare continuous deflection to traditional methods of assessing pavements.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committees on Pavement Structural Modeling and Evaluation and Pavement Condition Evaluation.

TRB Webinar: Simple Highway Capacity Manual Analysis Tools for Planning Applications June 10, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Monday, June 10, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET to discuss The National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Research Report 825: Planning and Preliminary Engineering Applications Guide. This was developed in parallel with the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM), Sixth Edition: A Guide for Multimodal Mobility Analysis. HCM is commonly used by transportation agencies to evaluate and forecast operations of roadway facilities. It may also be used to cost-effectively and reliably support agencies’ planning, programming, and management decisions. The Guide may demonstrate how HCM methods can be adapted to the larger study areas and less-precise, less-available data typical of planning and preliminary engineering studies.

This webinar will explore the contents of the NCHRP report, using case studies to illustrate how back-of-the-envelope methods and simple spreadsheets may be applied to a variety of planning studies. The presenter will identify how its methods provide analyses whose results will be consistent with those of more-detailed HCM operational analyses occurring at a later stage of project development. This webinar will be the first in a six-part series about the updates to the Highway Capacity Manual.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Highway Capacity and Quality of Service.

TRB will conduct a webinar on Tuesday, June 11, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET to discuss successful communications strategies for engaging the public in conversations around tolling and public-private partnerships (P3s). Proposals for funding transportation projects through tolls and P3s are often met with many questions and concerns from the public. The webinar will feature presenters who are familiar with congestion pricing and P3 projects. They will identify successful communications strategies they have used to inform the public about these strategies. Presenters will also discuss communications challenges and solutions and examine how to approach equity concerns.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committees on Public Involvement in Transportation, Congestion Pricing, Managed Lanes, Environmental Justice in Transportation, and Revenue and Finance.

TRB Webinar: Limitations of Drug Fatality Data June 13, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Thursday, June 13, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET to discuss limitations of fatality crash data reporting, specifically regarding drug-involved driving. The webinar will discuss crash data on individuals who are fatality-injured in a motor vehicle crash in the United States. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) is sometimes used to present levels of drug-positive driving, to analyze drug driving trends, and to identify impacts of legislation and programs.  Presenters will identify components of drug testing, and of FARS, to provide an understanding of what data goes into FARS, and how that informs data analyses.
