Welcome to the Joint Subcommittee on System Mobility and Emerging Technologies (SMET)

The joint subcommittee serves as the central forum to share information and best practices on how state DOTs are managing system operation and system mobility and how performance is impacted due to current and emerging transportation technologies, programs, operational strategies and connected environments. This may include examining the impacts of programs such Connected and Automated Vehicle (CAV) technology, Cooperative Automated Transportation (CAT) and Mobility on Demand (MOD).
