Unsolved Mysteries: Have a hard-to-solve problem that needs to be solved?
We all are faced with difficult, hard-to-solve problems – so we have created an interactive workshop at the 2017 TRB Annual Meeting we hope will address the unsolved mysteries that vex transportation professionals at all levels of the organizations – from planners to modelers to analysts. This workshop will present three intriguing, real-world problems selected from a pool of submissions before the workshop. WE NEED YOUR HELP! We are looking for real-world transportation problems that can be summarized in a case study from the perspective of an individual or project team. The case studies should contain pertinent information on the type of problem presented, geographic context, who was impacted and the impact of not reaching a resolution.
The deadline for submissions is October 1, 2016 and submissions can be made using this on-line form at: http://adb50.github.io/analyze-this/ Those who submit ideas that are selected will be provided the opportunity to present their problem at the TRB Annual Meeting.
Last year, workshop attendees had an opportunity to solve one of three mysteries. Coca Cola was seeking corporate strategies to reduce single occupancy vehicle trips. The City of Boulder asked the group to explore repurposing travel lanes for multimodal projects. Lastly, the City of Edmonton had question about how to incorporate connected and autonomous vehicle technologies into the regional travel demand model.analyze-this-call-for-workshop-ideas-final-2016-09
