This technical workshop, held in conjunction with the Fall 2015 meeting of the NUTC Business Advisory Council, will discuss the current applications of the Internet of Things (IoT) in transportation and logistics settings. IoT describes a network of physical and mobile objects or “things” embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity. In a transportation system, dynamic interaction between these “things” enables vehicular communication, smart traffic control, logistics and fleet management and optimization, intelligent port operations, vehicle control, and energy, maintenance and safety management, among others. The workshop features speakers from transportation firms, internet infrastructure companies, and technology providers for the transportation industry, and will describe applications in trucking, rail, and port operations, and more.
