Hosted by the National Operations Center of Excellence, ITS JPO Professional Capacity Building Program, and ITE, the Transportation Technology Tournament is a competition for students to work directly with state and local DOTs to solve real-world transportation problems utilizing ITS and TSMO solutions. Ten teams applied to participate by agreeing to tackle a specific transportation problem, as identified by a transportation agency they’re working with, and then utilized online ITS trainings, the experience of their team, and the guidance of industry professionals to develop a solution or suite of solutions to directly address the originally defined problem. All ten teams developed detailed documentation and presentations proposing their solution, and three finalist teams were chosen to be sent to ITE 2018 to present, in-person, in front of judges from the ITS and TSMO industry. Participating teams are: California Polytechnic University – San Luis Obispo; Florida International University; University of Southern Florida; The George Washington University; University of Nevada – Reno; North Dakota State University; Oregon State University; Texas A&M University; and University of Texas
