Notice to Applicants

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) is currently seeking information on:
  • Roadside units (RSUs) devices used to facilitate communication between vehicles and transportation infrastructure and other devices by transferring data over Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) or a cellular data connection in accordance with the industry standards.

  • On Board Units (OBUs) devices used to send necessary traffic information such as time, speed and the location of the vehicle and receive information from road side units or from other vehicles on the road through Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) or a cellular data connection in accordance with the industry standards.

  • 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.

  • Traffic Signal Management System. An integrated software solution that has the ability to remotely manage a Traffic Signal Systems or a single traffic signal independent of the controller make and model.

  • 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.

  • Video Analytics or Video Automatic Incident Detection software. A software solution that has the ability to automatically monitor Statewide CCTV cameras and to provide real time incident detection alarms and management capabilities to Regional Traffic Monitoring centers using existing infrastructure.

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 participation.

Application instructions

All vendors interested in presenting a product must submit an ITS Technology Product Presentation Application (pdf 1.4m) 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 attachments require mailing, or if a CD/DVD is submitted, include a printed copy of the application with any mailings and mail to the address provided on the application.

If you need assistance with the application, please email your inquiry.
