UPCOMING EVENTS

This Website will expand in the coming months to facilitate the transfer of the transformative technology needed to benefit the U.S. military, automotive industry, and the national economy.    

VISION STATEMENT:

The Intelligent Vehicle Technology Transfer (IVTT) Program will be the international champion for the transformational technology needed to develop and use intelligent vehicles for military and civil applications.

MISSION STATEMENT:

The IVTT Program will: serve as a central knowledge base for intelligent vehicle technology; provide forums for the transfer of technology between military and civil developers and users; advocate and facilitate the technological and economical feasibility of intelligent vehicles.

The IVTT Program and Process will be proactive, transparent, and accessible to a spectrum of participants and stakeholders.

PURPOSE:

The IVTT Program will facilitate intelligent vehicle technology transfer between the Department of Defense (DOD), and its stakeholders, and the Department of Transportation (DOT), and its stakeholders, in order to: save lives on the battlefield and on the roads and highways; save money on intelligent systems and infrastructure; and ease the emergence of a transformational technology which will:  impact military tactics, strategy, and doctrine; impact the automotive industry and society in general; and lead to the creation of innovative systems, military efficacy, and national wealth.

SPONSORSHIP:

The Intelligent Vehicle Technology Transfer (IVTT) Program is sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) of the Department of Defense (DOD) on behalf of its government and industry stakeholders.  It is supported by the Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (ITS JPO) of the Department of Transportation (DOT) on behalf of its government and industry stakeholders.  Its events are hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) of the Department of Commerce (DOC).

The IVTT is managed by Dr. Robert Finkelstein of Robotic Technology Inc. (www.RoboticTechnologyInc.com).
