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.

current infrastructure restrictions (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards

Restrictions levied on transportation asset usage based on infrastructure design, surveys, tests, or analyses. This includes standard facility design height, width, and weight restrictions, special restrictions such as spring weight restrictions, and temporary facility restrictions that are imposed during maintenance and construction.

device data (Existing)

Data from detectors, environmental sensor stations, roadside equipment, and traffic control devices, including device inventory information.

device status (Existing)

Status information from devices

emergency plan coordination (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards

Information that supports coordination of emergency management plans, continuity of operations plans, emergency response and recovery plans, evacuation plans, and other emergency plans between agencies. This includes general plans that are coordinated prior to an incident and shorter duration tactical plans that are prepared during an incident.

emergency transit schedule information (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards

Information on transit schedule and service changes that adapt the service to better meet needs of responders and the general public in an emergency situation, including special service schedules supporting evacuation.

evacuation information (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards

Evacuation instructions and information including evacuation zones, evacuation times, and reentry times.

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.

maint and constr work plans (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards

Future construction and maintenance work schedules and activities including anticipated closures with anticipated impact to the roadway, alternate routes, anticipated delays, closure times, and durations.

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.

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.

transit incident information (Planned) Applicable ITS Standards

Information on transit incidents that impact transit services for public dissemination.

transportation system status (Existing) Applicable ITS Standards

Current status and condition of transportation infrastructure (e.g., tunnels, bridges, interchanges, TMC offices, maintenance facilities). In case of disaster or major incident, this flow provides an assessment of damage sustained by the surface transportation system including location and extent of the damage, estimate of remaining capacity and necessary restrictions, and time frame for repair and recovery.
