Matthew Junak, HNTB Corporation

Sponsored by:
Standing Committee on Freeway Operations (changed to ACP20 on 4/15/2020) (AHB20)

This workshop will feature a highly interactive, breakout-session to discuss successful practices, available resources, and topics agencies should consider when developing a vision, preparing a concept of operations, and identifying the capabilities needed for their Next Generation of Traffic Management Systems (TMSs).  To make these decisions agencies will need a clear vision, strategic direction, needs, and resources available to plan for and develop these TMSs.

9:05 AM
Session 1: Developing a Vision, Concept of Operations, and Capabilities for the Next Generation of TMSs—What Issues and Challenges Should Agencies Consider?
Moderator: Bill Halkias (Attica Tollway Operations Authority; IBTTA)
Description: The first speaker will provide the context for next-generation of TMSs and frame the three presentations that will follow, which will cover topics to be discussed in the breakout session. Speakers will clarify the meaning and intent of each topic and briefly introduce the information compiled that will be discussed in Session 2.
Outcomes: Clear, shared understanding of the potential capabilities of the next generation of TMSs; clari- fied meaning/intent of each topic; and additions to “sample” list of issues to consider
Topics and Speakers:

  1. “Framing the Next Generation of TMSs,” Les Jacobson (WSP)
  2. “Preparing a Vision for a Next-Gen TMS,” Phil Masters (Parsons)
  3. “Developing a Concept of Operations for a Next-Gen TMS,” Peter Marshall, (Siemens)
  4. “Key Capabilities of Next-Generation TMSs,” Dan Lukasik, (Parsons)

 

9:55 AM
Session 2: Breakout Session—Identify Issues to Consider, Successful Practices, and Resources to Use
Moderator: Susanna Zammataro (International Road Federation – Geneva)
Description: This will be a breakout session, where attendees will join tables addressing one of three top- ics: (1) Preparing a Vision for a Next-Gen TMS; (2) Developing a Concept of Operations for a Next-Gen TMS; or (3) Identifying Key Capabilities of a Next-Gen TMS. For each of these topics, groups should re- view and add to the information provided for the three discussion items: issues agencies should con- sider, successful practices (e.g., agency name and/or report); and existing resources to use.
Outcomes: Lists of issues to consider, successful practices, and resources

 

11:00 AM
Session 3: Discuss Breakout Session Results
Moderator: Lisa Burgess (Kimley-Horn, TRB Active Traffic Management Joint Subcommittee)
Description: The moderator will ask each table to highlight three items they identified to add to each of the
three lists of information they reviewed and discussed for the topic specific for their breakout table. After all four tables reporting on a single topic have reported out, the moderator will ask for questions and feed- back (including any additional issues that should be considered) from the audience on that topic.
Outcomes: List of priority issues, successful practices, and resources from each of the three breakout- session topics to consider in the action planning for the Next-Gen TMS: 1) Preparing a Vision; (2) Devel- oping a Concept of Operations; or (3) Identifying Key Capabilities Needed.

 

11:40 AM
Action Planning: Identify Topics for Research or Industry Consideration & Collaboration
Moderator: Doug Gettman (Kimley-Horn, TRB Traffic Signal Systems Committee)
Description: The moderator will: summarize highlights from Session 3; help translate outcomes of the
workshop into actions—by leading a discussion to identify topics for future research and collaboration; and give participants an opportunity to provide feedback on these topics or suggest other actions.

 

11:50 AM
Immediate Next Steps & Sponsors’ Perspectives
Moderator:  Beverly Kuhn (TRB Freeway Operations Committee)
Speakers: Catherine McGhee (TRB Regional Systems Management and Operations Committee); Sherif Ishak (TRB Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Computing Applications Committee); Susan Langdon (TRB Traffic Signal System Committee); Matt Junak (TRB Intelligent Transportation Systems Committee); Dan Lukasik and Lisa Burgess (TRB Active Traffic Management Joint Subcommittee); Malika Seddi (ASECAP); Emanuela Stocchi (IBTTA)
