Intelligent transportation systems (ITS) improve transportation safety and mobility and enhances American productivity through advanced wireless communications technologies. TDOT's intelligent Transportation System, called TDOT SmartWay, uses live video cameras to monitor highways from Traffic Management Centers across the state (TMC), sensors to gauge traffic flow and large electronic message boards to provide urgent traffic notices and safety messages to drivers. Nashville, Knoxville, Memphis and Chattanooga have fully integrated TDOT SmartWay systems.
