LHTL ICMS (Decision Support System)
The Decision Support System will analyze current network traffic conditions and incident conditions to develop a recommended traffic management scheme including VMS messages, transit vehicle route modifications, signal timing plans, and ramp metering adjustments.
|Functional Object||Description||User Defined|
|TMC Demand Management Coordination||'TMC Demand Management Coordination' provides the capability to gather information on regional toll, parking, and transit usage and request changes to pricing and other mechanisms to manage overall transportation demand.||False|
|TMC Traffic Management Decision Support||'TMC Traffic Management Decision Support' recommends courses of action to the traffic operator based on current and forecast road and traffic conditions. Traffic incidents, special events, maintenance activities and other events or conditions that impact capacity or demand are monitored. Historical data and models are used to compare the impact of potential courses of action and make recommendations to the operator. Decisions are supported through presentation of filtered and fused network-wide road and traffic conditions that identify network imbalances and recommended courses of action. The recommended actions may include predefined incident response plans, signal timing plan changes, DMS/HAR messages, truck restrictions, lane control strategies, metering strategies, and adjustment of variable speed limits. Multimodal strategies may also be recommended that include suggested transit strategies and suggested route and mode choices for travelers. Once a course of action is selected, traffic operations personnel implement these actions within the Traffic Management Center and coordinate the response with other centers in the region.||False|
|TMC Traffic Network Performance Evaluation||'TMC Traffic Network Performance Evaluation' measures traffic network performance and predicts travel demand patterns to support traffic flow optimization, demand management, and incident management. It collects traffic data from sensors and surveillance equipment as well as input from other Traffic Management Centers, emissions management, transit operations, and event promoters and uses this information to measure traffic network performance. It collects route planning information from transportation information centers and integrates and uses this information to predict future traffic conditions. The planned control strategies can be passed back to the transportation information center so that the intended strategies can be reflected in future route planning.||False|
|NEMA TS 8||Cyber and Physical Security for Intelligent Transportation Systems||This specification describes how agencies and other transportation infrastructure owner/operators should implement cyber- and physical-security for ITS.|
