Abstract: The Innovative Corridors Initiative (ICI) is a multi-year project designed to encouarge the early deployment of innovative technologies for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) in California. ITS technologies are defined through a broad array of information and vehicle control technologies that are designed to improve traffic and transit management including safety, user choice, congestion, and incident response. For over a decade, ITS technologies have been gaining acceptance and are now used in every metropolitan area in the United States to enhance transportation system management. This report describes the first-year efforts of the ICI initiative–a joint effort of the California Department of Transportation, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) in the San Francisco By Area, the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), the California Center for Innovative Transportation (CCIT) at UC Berkeley, and ITS America.
