Alabama Statewide ITS Architecture Stakeholders Meeting November 21, 2013 Welcome from Director Cooper Welcome and Introductions Meeting Agenda ITS and the Statewide ITS Architecture Coordination between Agencies Existing and Planned ITS Systems, Projects, Programs Local Needs and Opportunities Next Steps Q&A and Wrap-Up ITS and the Statewide ITS Architecture What is ITS? Intelligent Officially Transportation Systems … - Electronics, communications, or information processing used singly or in combination to improve the efficiency or safety of a surface transportation system. (23 CFR Part 940) Unofficially - People using technology in transportation to save time, lives, and money ITS Components Communications Surveillance Detection Data processing Information Dissemination Centers (TCCs, TMCs) Data Archive / Data Management ITS Stakeholders Transportation Transit Agencies/Other Transit Providers Planning Public Fleet Agencies Organizations Safety Agencies Operators Travelers Activity …and Centers many more Traveler Information Systems Pre-Trip Information En-route Information Tourism and Events Arterial Management Systems Traffic Surveillance Traffic Control Lane Management Parking Management Information Dissemination Enforcement Freeway Management Systems Traffic Surveillance Special Event Transportation Management Information Dissemination Lane Management Enforcement Ramp Control Incident Management Systems Surveillance and Detection Mobilization and Response Information Dissemination Clearance and Recovery Emergency Management Systems Hazardous Materials Management Emergency Medical Services Response and Recovery Roadway Operations & Maintenance Information Dissemination Asset Management Work Zone Management Road Weather Management Systems Surveillance, Monitoring, and Prediction Information Dissemination Traffic Control Response and Treatment Crash Prevention and Safety Systems Road Geometry Warning Systems Highway Rail Crossing Systems Intersection Collision Warning Bicycle Warning Systems Animal Warning Systems Pedestrian Safety Intermodal Freight Freight Tracking Asset Tracking Freight Terminal Processes Drayage Operations Freight Highway Connector Systems International Border Crossing (IBC) Processes Commercial Vehicle Operations Credential Administration Safety Assurance Electronic Screening Carrier Operations and Fleet Management Security Operations Transit Management Systems Safety and Security Transit Demand Management Fleet Management Information Dissemination Electronic Payment Systems Toll Collection Transit Fare Payment Multi-use Payment Connected Vehicles Collision Warning Systems Driver Assistance Systems Collision Notification (“Mayday”) Systems Benefits of ITS Safety Customer Satisfaction Mobility Productivity Capacity/ Throughput Energy & Environment What is an ITS Architecture? A specific, tailored framework for ensuring institutional agreement and technical integration for the implementation of ITS projects in a particular region. It functionally defines what pieces of the system are linked to others and what information is exchanged between them. Benefits of an ITS Architecture Improves interagency coordination Provides better services to public Engages stakeholders Facilitates future ITS expansion Supports integration and interoperability Helps tailor ITS to local requirements Qualifies state for federal funding Alabama Statewide ITS Architecture Replaces out-dated Regional ITS Architectures: Huntsville Montgomery Shoals Mobile Birmingham New Statewide ITS Architecture encompasses all areas and stakeholders in the state. Any additional Regional ITS Architectures (not required), should be consistent with Statewide ITS Architecture. Coordination between Agencies Major Traffic Incident Scenario Coordination between Agencies How do agencies coordinate today? What are their roles and responsibilities? What are areas of improvement needed in interagency coordination? How can ITS help interagency coordination?
