The concept of a multi-purpose Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) laboratory at the University of Minnesota (U of MN) was conceived in the early 1990's. A committee consisting of transportation professionals from the Center for Transportation Studies (CTS), Minnesota Department of Transportation's (Mn/DOT) Office of Research Administration, the Traffic Management Center (TMC), and University professors created the requirements document the winter of 1992/93. The ITS Institute within CTS hired a manager in April 1994 for the detail design and implementation. The result is a world-class state-of-the-science traffic research, education, and training facility.
