The Institute of Transportation Studies (ITS) at UC-Berkeley was created in 1948 by the California state legislature in order to look into the situation of transportation facilities across the Golden State. Today, ITS has a wide range of specialists who research everything from transit planning to enhancing the pedestrian experience in cities. Their video collection offers ten videos of events held over the past several years at ITS, and they are all worth a look. Visitors can scroll down the list of available programs, and a good place to start is the March 5, 2010 seminar, which deals with crowd-sourcing real-time location data. This particular seminar looks at how an application designed for use with smart phones could effectively use location data for global map creation, navigation, and real-time traffic. The other program titles include "Clearing the Path for Hands-Free, Automated Driving" and "High Speed Rail: Challenges and Opportunities for California".
