Rochester Institute of Technology Key Developments

Rochester Institute of Technology and University of Delaware Collaborate with the U.S. Department of Transportation's Maritime Administration to Create Web-Based Version of Geospatial Intermodal Freight Transportation System

Rochester Institute of Technology and University of Delaware have collaborated with the U.S. Department of Transportation's Maritime Administration to create a Web-based version of the Geospatial Intermodal Freight Transportation System. The new system analyzes the time-of-delivery and environmental performance of various freight-transportation routes using road, rail and water. A new Web-based version of the Geospatial Intermodal Freight Transport Model, or GIFT, has been released as part of a five-year research initiative among researchers at Rochester Institute of Technology, University of Delaware and the U.S. Department of Transportation's Maritime Administration. The model, which utilizes geospatial mapping software, analyzes the time-of-delivery and environmental performance of various freight-transportation routes using rail, road and water. With this Web-based version, companies and local, state and federal government agencies can make decisions through an interactive map that are not only financially feasible, but also environmentally sustainable. The Web-based system, called WebGIFT (http://WebGIFT.rit.edu), includes updated transportation connections between the U.S. and Canada and Mexico; estimated road-speed data for more accurate travel calculations between origin and destination points; and tested case studies that reveal which shipping routes may produce lower emissions and lower energy use. A key feature of WebGIFT is that emissions rates; truck, train, and ship operating characteristics; and other variables can be adjusted to reflect a variety of operating scenarios that best reflect the user's needs and future energy and emission standards. The new system analyzes the time-of-delivery and environmental performance of various freight-transportation routes using road, rail and water.
