Notice to Applicants
The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) is currently seeking information on:
- Appropriately-sized variable message signs to be utilized on arterials with constrained
Right of Way (ROW). The purpose of these signs is to display travel times (distance and
time). Signs should be mostly static with a dynamic travel time display.
- Non-intrusive subsurface exploration to verify underground utility type and location
within a specified roadway, pavement, sidewalk, grass median, etc. Subsurface exploration
should identify all underground utilities, to a minimum depth of 3 feet and be able to identify
utilities within a specified area.
- Travel time collection technologies on arterial roadways. These systems should
be able to re-identify individual users (vehicles) and be able to output an XML feed containing the
travel time information.
The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) has put an Intelligent Transportation Systems
(ITS) Technology Product Presentation process in place for presentation/demonstration of
all Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) products, equipment and services for
Transportation Systems Management (TSM). This new process applies to all technology firms/businesses
(vendors) and is being implemented to improve transparency in the process of researching and
identifying products suitable to the needs of TSM for NJDOT as well as to ensure an opportunity for
all interested participants to participate uniformly utilizing the same procedures.
NJDOT is interested in new TSM-related products and will schedule ITS Technology Product Presentation
opportunities to learn about new technologies and/or product updates that may assist NJDOT in meeting
its mission of developing, supporting and implementing the latest technology for ITS initiatives. ITS
Technology Product Presentations will occur on an as-needed basis.
Mobility and Systems Engineering (MSE) does not allow vendors to contact MSE or its employees
directly. Vendors interested in presenting their products must present them on ITS Technology Product
Presentation days. All inquiries regarding new ITS Technology Product presentations must made by
email only. Firms/businesses are prohibited from making unscheduled or unsolicited contact or calls.
Failure to follow these procedures may disqualify a firm/business from being considered for
All vendors interested in presenting a product must submit an
ITS Technology Product Presentation Application
(pdf 1.6m) for the appropriate ITS Technology Product Presentation day.
Presentations will be scheduled through an electronic process. Adequate notice will be provided
whenever practical prior to scheduling an ITS Technology Product Presentation day. Each ITS
Technology Product Presentation day may involve either single or multiple products to be presented
depending on the needs of NJDOT at that time. The names of firm/business and product(s) who have
presented either via webinar or in person will be posted on the NJDOT web site.
NJDOT will determine the product needed and the type of products to be demonstrated as well as
whether an in-person or webinar presentation will be requested.
Submit a separate application for each product. Submission of the application is required prior to a
presentation being scheduled by NJDOT. All applications are to be signed, dated and all attachments
must reference the specific application.
It is preferable for all applications to be submitted electronically in PDF format. However, should
