Information Services in Social Networked Transportation

Project Description: 

Traditionally, transportation is understood as the physical displacement of people, goods, and vehicles. Information technology is often used to model the system or to optimize the system. Here, however, we see information as the essence of the system. In the social networked paradigm we reconceptualize transportation as an information ecosystem in an institutional landscape. This project will analyze information flows and institutions in surface transportation in order to promote new information services. It attempts to illuminate the evolving role of state DOTs as transportation becomes more information intensive.
