The Florida APTS program has yielded several research documents including three technology case studies, a scanning mission report, technical assistance, and an inventory of APTS technologies.
ITS Program Systems Engineering
FDOT has completed the development of the Systems Engineering Management Plan (SEMP). Phase I of this project initiated the process of identifying and defining a consisteITS Program Systems Engineering FDOT has completed the development of the
Systems Engineering Management Plan (SEMP). Phase I of this project initiated
the process of identifying and defining a consistent systems engineering
approach through an appraisal and process review of current practices and
methods for systems engineering in Florida.
Phase II utilized the results of work completed in Phase I to develop the SEMP.
The SEMP enables an ITS engineer to manage a project using systems engineering
principles and methods to maximize the quality of the system being implemented,
while minimizing the budget and schedule required for its completion.

The Transit Planning Section provides technical and planning support to Florida transit systems and FDOT District Offices via the development of planning tools, policies, facility design guidelines, performance monitoring, transit modeling, data management, professional networking and training. This office is also responsible for coordinating all of the research program activities for the Public Transit Office. The Transit Planning Office's primary funcational areas include:
Areas of Responsibilities
The purpose of the ITS Strategic Plan (Plan) is to provide statewide direction and guidance for the FDOT, Florida's Metropolitan Planning Organizations, and local governments in planning, programming, and implementing integrated multi-modal ITS elements to maximize the safety and efficiency of Florida's Transportation System.
The Plan was recently updated to include:
An analysis of FDOT's Traffic Engineering and Operations Office ITS Section and District achievements with respect to the objectives and initial actions recommended in the Plan;
an assessment of new national and state ITS policies, programs, and technologies;
the identification and development of new ITS Program core strategies to guide the future of ITS in Florida; and
the provision of ITS management and operations to sustain the investments in ITS.
The Plan expressly addresses implementation of the Ten-Year ITS Cost Feasible Plan.
