RAD-IT Web-Based Training
This online training course on the Regional Architecture Development tool for Intelligent Transportation (RAD-IT) provides an alternative to an on-site RAD-IT Training course. RAD-IT is an interactive software program that assists transportation planners and system integrators in the development of regional and project architectures. This web-based training provides ITS professionals with an introduction and hands-on experience using the tool. Participants will work with their copy of RAD-IT with practice exercises to create, maintain, and use regional and project ITS architectures.
At the end of the training, participants will be able to use the RAD-IT software to create and modify a regional or project architecture including providing a link to planning, entering stakeholders, entering inventory data, selecting ITS services, creating operational concepts, developing high level functional requirements, building and customizing interfaces, generating tailored standards listings, entering agreements, creating outputs, and applying features to new projects.
