Meeting theme deployment

Meeting Theme - Deployment

  • The MDSS concept is sound

  • The technology has been developed

  • The system has been tested (yes, there is still more to learn & develop)

  • All parties are interested (DOTs & VAMS)

  • It is time to discuss:

    • What do DOTs want (functionality, cost, etc)?

    • What do VAMS need to commit to providing MDSS functionality?

    • When could VAMS begin to provide these services?
