Architecture Flow Definitions

alert notification (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards

Notification of a major emergency such as a natural or man-made disaster, civil emergency, or child abduction for distribution to the public. The flow identifies the alert originator, the nature of the emergency, the geographic area affected by the emergency, the effective time period, and information and instructions necessary for the public to respond to the alert. This flow may also identify specific information that should not be released to the public.

alert status (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards

Information indicating the current status of the emergency alert including identification of the traveler and driver information systems that are being used to provide the alert.

data provision (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards

Data provision provides the source material for a publish-subscribe or query-retrieval data distribution scheme. This is the 1 of the 1:N data distribution architecture. This flow is a super-flow; it does not define data elements but is inclusive of any flow implemented using publish-subscribe or query-retrieval methods.

emergency routes (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards

Suggested ingress and egress routes for access to and between the scene and staging areas or other specialized emergency access routes.

emergency traffic control information (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards

Status of a special traffic control strategy or system activation implemented in response to an emergency traffic control request, a request for emergency access routes, a request for evacuation, a request to activate closure systems, a request to employ driver information systems to support public safety objectives, or other special requests. Identifies the selected traffic control strategy and system control status.

emergency traffic control request (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards

Special request to preempt the current traffic control strategy in effect at one or more signalized intersections or highway segments, activate traffic control and closure systems such as gates and barriers, activate safeguard systems, or use driver information systems. For example, this flow can request all signals to red-flash, request a progression of traffic control preemptions along an emergency vehicle route, request a specific evacuation traffic control plan, request activation of a road closure barrier system, or place a public safety or emergency-related message on a dynamic message sign.

incident information (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards

Notification of existence of incident and expected severity, location, time and nature of incident. As additional information is gathered and the incident evolves, updated incident information is provided. Incidents include any event that impacts transportation system operation ranging from routine incidents (e.g., disabled vehicle at the side of the road) through large-scale natural or human-caused disasters that involve loss of life, injuries, extensive property damage, and multi-jurisdictional response. This also includes special events, closures, and other planned events that may impact the transportation system.

incident response status (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards

Status of the current incident response including a summary of incident status and its impact on the transportation system, traffic management strategies implemented at the site (e.g., closures, diversions, traffic signal control overrides), and current and planned response activities.

resource deployment status (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards

Status of resource deployment identifying the resources (vehicles, equipment, materials, and personnel) available and their current status. General resource inventory information and specific status of deployed resources may be included.

resource request (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards

A request for resources to implement special traffic control measures, assist in clean up, verify an incident, etc. The request may poll for resource availability or request pre-staging, staging, or immediate deployment of resources. Resources may be explicitly requested or a service may be requested and the specific resource deployment may be determined by the responding agency.

road closure notification (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards

Notification that agency personnel have closed a road due to adverse weather, major incident, or other reason.

road network conditions (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards

Current and forecasted traffic information, road and weather conditions, and other road network status. Either raw data, processed data, or some combination of both may be provided by this flow. Information on diversions and alternate routes, closures, and special traffic restrictions (lane/shoulder use, weight restrictions, width restrictions, HOV requirements) in effect is included.

roadway maintenance status (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards

Summary of maintenance fleet operations affecting the road network. This includes the status of winter maintenance (snow plow schedule and current status).

traffic images (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards

High fidelity, real-time traffic images suitable for surveillance monitoring by the operator or for use in machine vision applications. This flow includes the images and meta data that describes the images.

work zone information (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards

Summary of maintenance and construction work zone activities affecting the road network including the nature of the maintenance or construction activity, location, impact to the roadway, expected time(s) and duration of impact, anticipated delays, alternate routes, and suggested speed limits. This information may be augmented with images that provide a visual indication of current work zone status and traffic impacts.
