CEC Traffic Team Attends Penn State’s Transportation Engineering And Safety Conference (TESC)

Earlier this month, Carroll Engineering’s Traffic and Transportation Team members, Daniel Bhaumik, EIT, and Jamie Graham, P.E., PTOE, Traffic & Transportation Department Manager, attended Penn State’s Transportation Engineering and Safety Conference (TESC) which was held virtually. This year’s conference topics included Vision Zero – A Systems Approach to Safety: Designing transportation systems with the goal of there being as close to 0 injuries/fatalities as possible, Traffic Signal Asset Management Systems (TSAMS) – Implementation and Next Steps: utilizing PennDOT’s web-based application to download various types of relevant information such as intersections and signals to provide Traffic Engineers the ability to bridge previous generations of design and those in the future, and Automated Driving System (ADS) Grant Proposals: will aid in the research of assessing automated vehicles to determine best safety practices and provide necessary collaboration on the integration of on-road transportation systems throughout the nation.  As Dan stated, “TESC has always been an interesting conference to attend, as it is also an exciting time to be a Transportation Engineer because we are very much in the swing of thinking about transportation for the rest of the 21st century, as opposed to finishing out the trends of what transportation engineering was in the 20th century.”
