Technology Product Presentation
for Transportation Systems Management
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.
- 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
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.
Effective immediately, Mobility and Systems Engineering (MSE) will no longer 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.
All vendors interested in presenting a product must submit an ITS Technology Product Presentation Application
(pdf 2.9m) 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.
