Crowdsourcing is the practice of addressing a need or problem by enlisting the services of a large number of people via technologies. The crowdsourced landscape for local and state transportation systems management and operations has matured through vehicle probe, mobile application, and social media data. By leveraging free or vendor-provided data, agencies represented in this session have improved their decision-making at tactical, real-time, and more strategic programmatic levels to improve safety, trip reliability, and operations.
- Understand how to be a champion for leveraging crowdsourced data in an agency with a clear vision of how crowdsourced data can help transportation managers, planners, engineers, and systems operators make decisions with greater timeliness, confidence, and impact.
- Increased awareness of open-source code and communities of practice to help agencies quickly realize the safety, reliability, and cost-saving benefits of crowdsourcing.
- Understand lessons learned and best practices to quickly and efficiently overcome initial deployment challenges of crowdsourcing for operations and avoiding costly mistakes others have made.
