Decision Support Requirements for Next-Generation Traffic Management Systems and Centers (TMCs)
Sunday, January 07, 2018, 1:30 PM-4:30 PM, Convention Center
Jon Obenberger, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA); Leslie Jacobson, WSP, presiding
Sponsored by Standing Committee on Freeway Operations; Standing Committee on Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Computing Applications; Standing Committee on Regional Transportation Systems Management and Operations; Standing Committee on Intelligent Transportation Systems; Subcommittee on Active Traffic Management; and Standing Committee on Traffic Signal Systems
The next generation of traffic management systems
and TMCs are expected to process larger amounts of data, make more
decisions in real-time, automate their operation, and proactively manage and
control traffic, coordinate, and share information with other systems and
service providers to improve the safety and mobility of the facilities being
managed. This workshop will discuss innovative technologies, successful
practices and research to support agencies developing and using decision support
subsystems appropriate to meet the needs of different types of legacy systems
and TMCs. The topics to be addressed will include decision support subsystem
requirements, design, components, and use of innovative technologies, system
