Intelligent Transportation Systems
TIA's Intelligent Transportation Systems Working Group (ITSWG) develops policy positions and governmental advocacy strategies to advance the interests of information and communications technology (ICT) stakeholders in the intelligent transportation sector.
TIA's ITSWG advocates policies that will enhance innovation and encourage investment in connected and autonomous vehicle technologies. The ITSWG provides opportunities for TIA member companies to highlight to the Congress, the Administration, Federal Agencies, and any other relevant governmental body, the potential benefits that ICT's use in vehicles can have on highway safety, fuel consumption, and traffic congestion.
