Purdue U. wants to solve its local traffic woes

West Lafayette, Indiana, plans to build on its “smart” camera system to improve road safety when the rural city’s population booms during Purdue University’s school year, the university announced last week. To find a solution, the city of roughly 50,000 residents is hosting a competition asking teams of students, researchers, faculty and small businesses to address the risks posed by increases in traffic during the school year and university events, as well as city gatherings like festivals. Three finalists, to be selected next January, will gain access to historical and real-time traffic data from 19 cameras to develop prototypes. Emily Bamforth has the details.

U. of Arizona president's contract is tied to IT goals

University of Arizona President Robert Robbins is set to earn an additional $50,000 if he completes one-year and long-term performance goals associated with information technology, per a contract approved by the state’s board of regents. Robbins will look to reduce college and department overhead costs by about $10 million through “appropriate” centralization in multiple university service areas, including IT, within the next year to earn $25,000, according to the contract. To earn another $25,000, he would need to update the university’s IT security operations, including revising the strategic plan and a system for evaluating security practices by 2024.
