To further Utah’s vision of connected and automated technology in our state, Utah Transportation Technology Group continues to implement and expand projects that help connect systems, vehicles and people. UDOT believes that these technologies will move us significantly toward our vision of Zero Fatalities, improve mobility and access, and bring quality of life and economic enhancements.
Utah Transportation Technology Group projects are categorized according to the following areas:
To have a truly responsive transportation network, Utah Transportation Technology Group is focusing on establishing a full, situational awareness system that allows us to know what is happening on our roadways in real time. Synthesizing our Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) data from a variety of sources in an adaptable way is crucial in moving toward complete situational awareness.
Additionally, we have developed one of the most robust, DOT-owned fiber optic networks in the nation. The network has been expanded greatly in the last decade to include 2,700 miles of fiber in both urban and rural areas. Our fiber network extends to some very remote corners of the state, and contributes to our connected system.
