Head of Intelligent Traffic Systems

Job Description

Mobility in the U.S. is in the middle of a technological revolution, and as cities and states begin to plan for and implement autonomous, electric, connected, and shared mobility infrastructure, they must also handle existing assets: highways, city streets, tunnels, and railway crossings that continue to be hot spots for congestion.
