The Connected Corridors Ecosystem

The efforts to develop collaborative relationships with Caltrans, public agencies, academia, and private partners have enabled Connected Corridors to build an extended organization or "ecosystem" of participants who contribute their input, expertise, and support to the ICM project. This ecosystem includes transportation engineers, electrical engineers, researchers, system engineers, software developers, communication specialists, public relation experts, policy analysts, project and program managers, government organizations, and more. It is composed of seven distinct groups:



Core personnel working at Berkeley PATH (40+ personnel) Program Management, Research, Outreach, Communication, Systems Engineering, AMS (Analysis, Modeling, and Simulation), Systems Development, and Evaluation. This includes multiple professors, researchers, communication personnel, engineers, management, and administrative support.
