Intelligent Transportation Systems – ITS

ITS is the use of advanced technology and communications

to make our highways safer and more efficient


Our ever increasing population continues to create more traffic and make our roads more congested. Congestion is not only a hazard, it costs hundreds of millions of dollars in lost productivity each year, it contributes to environmental pollution and it has quality of life implications.

We can no longer solve today’s transportation problems using yesterday’s solutions. Acquiring more space and building more roads is no longer the default option, and in fact, is fast becoming non-feasible.

Through the strategic deployment of various devices along our highways, the NMDOT can make better use of our existing infrastructure, making it safer and more efficient.

Full FHWA Oversight and Compliance

Requires the Department to Demonstrate Adherence to Federal Regulations

  • ITS Deployments are planned and developed from an Architecture - modeled from the National ITS Architecture

  • Designed to provide common framework planning, defining and integrating systems

  • Accesses established standards (NTCIP) to ensure system compatibility

Full FHWA Oversight and Compliance (cont.)

Providing Independent Verification and Validation

  • ITS Systems are designed in strict accordance with the Federal Systems Engineering Requirements

ITS - the use of advanced communications technologies and data collection techniques to improve transportation safety and mobility

The NMDOT uses ITS to:

Observe road conditions

and monitor traffic

Advise motorists and the public of road and traffic conditions

Monitor weather conditions

effect on our roadways

Detect and Manage

Highway Incidents

  • Manage maintenance and

  • construction activities
