U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood has appointed UMTRI Director Peter Sweatman as a member of the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Program Advisory Committee.

The committee is charged with reviewing areas of ITS research being considered for funding by the U.S. Department of Transportation and advising the Secretary on ITS aspects of the Department's strategic plan. The work of the Advisory Committee is supported by the Research and Innovative Technology Administration's ITS Joint Program Office.

In a December 17 letter of appointment, Secretary LaHood said that Sweatman's service will enhance the value of the committee's role as a forum for national discussion and recommendations on ITS activities.

Sweatman is one of thirteen new appointees to join the twenty-member advisory committee. He will serve a two-year term.
