Decision Support Tools for Operations of Traffic Management Centers
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) released a report that examines new methods developed to estimate freeway performance measures using data collected through intelligent transportation systems (ITS). The performance measures are being developed as part of a decision support tool to support traffic management operations. The performance measures include travel time estimation, traffic diversion caused by incidents, secondary crashes, mobility impacts caused by incidents, and incident classification.
