The Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Program endeavors to provide a safe transportation system that ensures the mobility of people and goods, enhances economic prosperity, and preserves the quality of our environment and communities.

The ITS Program is divided into five areas and a new initiative:

The connected vehicle initiative uses leading edge technologies to quickly identify roadway hazards and alert drivers. Among others, these technologies include:
  • Wireless communications
  • Vehicle sensors
  • Global positioning system navigation


  • Promote ITS deployments on Florida's roadways, develop standards, maintain the ITS Strategic Plan, and implement a systems engineering process to support procurement and deployment of ITS
  • Deploy advanced traveler information systems and 511
  • Develop and update the ITS standards and specifications
  • Provide technical support and assistance to FDOT's District Offices and other partners
  • Promote and coordinate the statewide use of robust, non-proprietary ITS standards.
