Texas Technology Task Force
The Texas Technology Task Force advances the development of a high-performance transportation system, which will continue to position Texas as a leader in economic activity and technological innovation.
The Task Force documents their work by submitting annual white papers on information regarding innovative technologies, policies, or programs. The Technology Utilization Plan (TUP) identifies opportunities for TxDOT to use advanced technology to reasonably meet existing and anticipated goals in the near and long term.

Task Force origin
The 83rd Texas Legislature (2013) issued a mandate to TxDOT to establish a technology task force to monitor and advise on emerging transportation technologies. The Texas Technology Task Force was formed following this mandate with a deliberate composition of subject matter experts across industry, research institutions, and public agencies with extensive knowledge in vehicle automation, telecommunications, big data, innovative funding and partnerships, transit, freight, long-range and strategic planning, and additional areas of expertise. Task Force membership is dynamic and undergoes periodic review to ensure that the right mix of expertise is included to capture perspectives on new technologies and innovative processes.
Mission & activities
The Task Force has designed its activities to advance the mission of transformational technology discovery, stakeholder engagement, coordination, and planning with other state agencies and developing strategic recommendations for technology advancement. The Task Force activities are planned around its organizing principles of People, Portfolio, Plans, and Process. Each of these principles and corresponding activities is described in the 2022 Tech Utilization Plan, starting on page 7.
