Volpe’s Fifth Innovation Challenge will Focus on New Transportation Solutions

The fifth annual Volpe Innovation Challenge will take place on December 6 at Volpe’s campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts. DOT’s first Chief Innovation Officer, Chris Gerdes, Ph.D., will discuss the importance of innovation, and he will lead the panel of judges that will select the winning team. Gerdes joined Volpe this past October for the Future of Transportation speaker series. The judges include the New England regional directors of DOT’s Operating Administrations – people who might use the innovations.

Key Takeaways:

  • The winning team in 2012 developed the Safety Hazard Analysis Tool, which makes hazard analysis easier by using top-down system engineering and control systems theory.
  • The judges include the New England regional directors of DOT’s Operating Administrations – people who might use the innovations.
  • The fifth annual Volpe Innovation Challenge will take place on December 6 at Volpe’s campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
