Transportation Systems Invention and Innovation 720556

While there is a high level of invention and innovation in transportation activities, there is little innovation supportive of solutions to systems problems. Impediments to such innovation may include resistance of transportation to those innovations that result in system change, the resistance of the environment of transportation systems to systems change, lack of client-sponsors for changes, and lack of systems knowledge. These impediments might be circumvented by developments such as government acting as the client-sponsor for certain types of innovation, better coupling of innovators to monetary payoffs, and the creation of experimental environments within which innovations might be tested.
