About this Event

Ray Murphy, ITS Specialist with the FHWA Resource Center, will speak about EDC-5 Innovations in Weather Responsive Management Strategies (WRMS). By adopting WRMS, transportation agencies can better manage traffic and maintenance roadway conditions during inclement weather to improve safety and reliability, and minimize environmental impacts of weather on the transportation system. WMRS use road weather data from Integrating Mobile Observations(IMO) and connected vehicle technologies, combined with informed decisions stemming from the collaborative strategy known as Pathfnder. With this data, State and local agencies can deploy appropriate traffc management strategies where they are needed before negative incidents occur, and reduce costs associated with winter maintenance, including salt and chemical applications.

In addition to expertise in Road Weather Management, Mr. Murphy is an expert in the areas of transportation cybersecurity and connected/automated vehicles. He has more than 30 years of experience as an electrical engineer, having served both in the U.S. Naval Civil Engineers Corps (SEABEES) and Illinois Department of Transportation.
