UMTRI director elected president of ITS-Michigan
UMTRI director Peter Sweatman was elected president of the Michigan chapter of the Intelligent Transportation Society on May 16 at the group's annual meeting in Novi. His term runs until 2008.
ITS-Michigan was established in 1991 as a not-for-profit organization to foster the use of advanced technologies in surface transportation systems. Since then, ITS America has become a national advocate for the development and deployment of intelligent transportation systems in the U.S. Members include private corporations, public agencies, academic institutions and research centers. The national organization and the state chapters share a common goal: to improve the safety, security and efficiency of the nationﾒs transportation system for the traveling public through the deployment of ITS.
