(Alameda CTC) - GoPort Freight Intelligence Transportation System


There are a number of USDOT programs that can be leveraged to support the proposed deployments on this project. Correspondingly, the results of this project can also be used as a model for these USDOT programs. Table 9 shows the relationship of GoPort ITST Master Plan vision elements as discussed in Section 10 – and the associated specific GoPort Freight ITS technology elements – to key USDOT technology, research and other programs.
