ITS Joint Program Office
The Intelligent Transportations Systems Joint Program Office (ITS JPO)
Transform the way society moves.
Conduct research, development, and education activities to facilitate the adoption of information and communication technology to enable society to move more safely and efficiently.
Planning for the Future of ITS
The ITS Joint Program Office’s 2015-2019 ITS Strategic Plan
The USDOT's current ITS research program is focused on two key priorities: Realizing Connected Vehicle Implementation and Advancing Automation. The ITS Strategic Plan lays out program categories that provide a structure for research, development, and adoption of ITS technologies that advance these key priorities.

National ITS Architecture
The National ITS Architecture provides a common framework for planning, defining, and integrating intelligent transportation systems. It is a mature product that reflects the contributions of a broad cross-section of the ITS community (transportation practitioners, systems engineers, system developers, technology specialists, consultants, etc.).
The architecture defines:
- The functions (e.g., gather traffic information or request a route) that are required for ITS
- The physical entities or subsystems where these functions reside (e.g., the field or the vehicle).
- The information flows and data flows that connect these functions and physical subsystems together into an integrated system.
If you would prefer a summary document that you can print and read over coffee, a brief document is available that presents the key architecture concepts.
