1 ITS & Traffic Control Michael P. Klatt

2 ITS Evolution of ITS into Traffic Control “Intelligent Transportation Systems”

3 Evolution of ITS - Traffic Control Saw-horse, cones, barrels, etc Static Signage Beacons

4 Evolution of ITS - Traffic Control Saw-horse, cones, barrels, etc Static Signage Beacons Stand-alone ‘local’ VMS

5 Evolution of ITS - Traffic Control Saw-horse, cones, barrels, etc Static Signage Beacons Stand-alone ‘local’ VMS Stand-alone ‘remote’ VMS

6 Evolution of ITS - Traffic Control Saw-horse, cones, barrels, etc Static Signage Beacons Stand-alone ‘local’ VMS Stand-alone ‘remote’ VMS CamsHAR Speed Trailers Traffic Sensor

7 Evolution of ITS - Traffic Control Celtel, Pager, Software,Multiple Vendors … Cluttered work zone, lots of orange stuff, some local, some cellular, some pager, some with software, all from many vendors… few who could operate everything.

8 Evolution of ITS - Traffic Control Celtel, Pager, Software,Multiple Vendors … RESULT: Little or Misinformation to motorists Often irrelevant, untimely, and frustrating to motorists. Bad PR … Safety concerns/distractions

9 ITS Integration into Traffic Control 1.Technology: Devices (e.g. VMS, HAR, Cams, Sensors, software, etc.) 2.Operations a.Accurate Information b.Timely Information c.Pertinent Information d.Properly Trained Information Decision Makers

10 Integration OBJECTIVES Provide Accurate Real Time traffic data from the work zone/corridor Provide a cohesive, truly integrated solution that eliminates typical “finger- pointing” Automate common or repetitive tasks Archive historical data Improve public relations Save DOT personnel time/Department $ Increase Safety for workers & motorists

11 ITS Integration CHALLENGES Multiple vendors of devices (vms, har, cams, etc.) and integration / compatibility concerns Wireless communications: cellular phone overload, pager access areas, security and availability Proprietary software, DOT/Contractor “had” to purchase –Upgrade costs, maintenance costs, licensing, etc. = NTCIP - standard protocol development Operations training, personnel costs, facility costs, contractor relations…

12 AIMS Central Control System - NTOC - Highway Advisory Radio, AM Broadcast Tune To Alert Beacon Signs Variable Message Signs Traffic Detection & Sensing Video Cameras & Imaging Pager, PDA & PC Alerts Web Site Updates Data Collection & Input From Work Zone Dissemination of Information Current Traffic Conditions & Instructions Automated Information Management System AIMS

13 Integrated ITS BENEFITS One integrated software package that controls all devices in the work zone - initially, manually controlled - automate repetitive functions Trained information officers to provide legally and politically correct and accurate information to motorists. Work Zone “systems” specifications developed and bid for consistent, fully functional ITS traffic control systems. (hardware & software integration requirements)

14 Turnkey SOLUTIONS One source of software and devices that controls all work zone equipment - truly turnkey URHT local supply, service & support for work zone devices, maintenance and software NTOC - Nat’l. Traffic Operations Center - complete operations, 24/7/365 One point of contact for complete system and device responsibility !

15 AIMS Central Control System - NTOC - Highway Advisory Radio, AM Broadcast Tune To Alert Beacon Signs Variable Message Signs Traffic Detection & Sensing Video Cameras & Imaging Pager, PDA & PC Alerts Web Site Updates Data Collection & Input From Work Zone Dissemination of Information Current Traffic Conditions & Instructions Automated Information Management System AIMS

16 SmartCam Digital camera/sensor linked to your computer over a wireless connection. (CDPD, broadband radio link…) Solar powered and 100% portable. Optional PTZ Configuration Streaming Video options

17 SmartCam Just type in the IP address of the sensor or camera and within moments you have live data and images from your work zone. Ease of Use

18 SmartCam Get live updates from your entire inventory of SmartCams with one simple click of the mouse. Multiple Image View

19 AIMS Map View Customizable screen graphically depicts the area being monitored. Custom Engineered Design by URHT ITS Services, 100% user definable and project specific.

20 AIMS Details View All of the devices under system control can be viewed on one screen, including the current state of each device. Any remotely accessible device parameter may be displayed on this screen.

21 AIMS Message Library Display of all pre- programmed, automated and manual messages available for CMS and HAR by Sequence number and/or message number

22 AIMS Message Development Easy message development for custom, ‘on the fly’ messages… for incidents and emergencies

23 AIMS Emergency Message Overrides Easy system overrides by any authorized operator. Operator has the ability to override any or all of the devices under system control.

24 AIMS Access Security Any function that will effect the system is protected with a user id & password. All Sign On events are logged in a protected file.

25 AIMS Web Enabled  Easily understood current traffic conditions on the web -  for Department or general public access  “Backdoor” detailed info for Department personnel only

26 AIMS Web Enabled …or check on the camera page for the latest images of your work zone…

27 AIMS Communications Wireless communications can range from cellular AMPS to CDPD to satellite, 2.4/4.9/5.8 gHZ, etc., depending upon the device and infrastructure services available. Landline communications from POTS dial-up to frame relay & other dedicated high speed fiber point-to-point dedicated connections. (typically for permanent installations)

28 AIMS SUMMARY ONE software package that truly integrates the most commonly used traffic control technologies (HAR, VMS, CCTV, Sensors, etc.). SINGLE point of responsibility for software and field devices, integration, communications, maintenance/service and operations. Truly Turnkey. COMMITTED to long-term, successful relationships with Federal & State agencies, consultants and contractors for timely & successful ITS deployments. DEDICATED resources to ensure software, equipment and personnel performance is the very best available. ITS SERVICES GROUP
