Readers of APMdigest and DEVOPSdigest who work for transportation-related or automotive-related companies, organizations or government agencies will find the new site especially interesting.

The site is modeled on APMdigest and DEVOPSdigest, offering associations, consultants, analysts, researchers, the academic sector, the public sector, ITS product vendors, auto OEMs and suppliers an opportunity to share knowledge and express their views, and ultimately to help advance the industry through collaboration. Blogs on ITSdigest will discuss the future of ITS, where we are going or where we should be going, safety issues, environmental issues, privacy issues — everything that the ITS industry is thinking about today.

The timing is right for an ITS community blog, with several autonomous vehicle programs debuting vehicles around the world, as well as a greater commitment being made to connected vehicles. ITS has been around for a long time, but this is the beginning of the Era of ITS.

Just a few of the primary topics covered on ITSdigest include:

■ Autonomous Vehicles

■ Connected Vehicles and Infrastructure

■ Traffic Management

■ Travel Information Systems

■ Open Road Tolling

■ Public Transport

■ Transportation Safety

■ Emissions Control

■ Fleet Management

■ Advanced Parking Technology
