A March 28, 2017 report from TRB's Research and Technology Coordinating Committee (RTCC) to the U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) offers recommendations addressing the barriers to deploying private-sector innovations and technologies; the evaluation of demonstration programs deploying technologies and pilot testing user-fee financing mechanisms; the completion of case studies of FHWA's research and technology program; and planning for a research and technology program to address the major challenges facing highway transportation for Congress's next transportation authorization.
The RTCC’s charge is to monitor and review FHWA’s research and technology activities; advise FHWA on setting a research agenda and coordination of highway research with states, universities, and other partners; review strategies to accelerate the deployment and adoption of innovation; and identify areas where research may be needed. RTCC’s review includes the process of research agenda setting; stakeholder involvement; and the conduct of research, peer review, and deployment. The committee’s role is to provide strategic, policy-level advice on topical priorities, processes, and strategies to accelerate the adoption of innovation.
