Strategy matters when we address challenges posed by current and future research and practice of transportation science. This presentation will outline a few examples of the role of strategy in formulating innovative solutions for the transportation industry. These examples will illustrate the significant role of information processing, advanced data analysis, management, and discovery in implementing the strategies. Additional examples will illustrate how research and development of novel computational techniques will identify new opportunities and provide insight into the right strategies and policies. Strategy-driven solution development and research-and-data-driven strategy formulation are keys to turn research results into useful applications as the transportation industry evolves due to a few megatrends in technology and society.
