The system will also broadcast recommended routes and predictive travel times to roadway users
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) District 7 is implementing an advanced arterial management system (AMS) at 91 signalised intersections on California’s Pacific Coast Highway.
The Pacific Coast Highway AMS project is a critical element of Caltrans’ dynamic corridor congestion management programme.
The project in partnership with Parsons will leverage Sensys Networks IoT platform and SNAPS software to obtain a variety of performance measures on parallel arterial routes including level-of-service, travel-time variability/reliability, and intersection queue length.
As a result, the platform will provide real-time assessments of the arterial system performance and enable signal timing change to accommodate unforeseen events on the adjacent freeway or the arterial system. Additionally, the system will broadcast recommended routes and predictive travel times to roadway users.
“Intelligent transportation systems increase capacity, efficiency, and safety for motorists,” said Dan Lukasik, vice president, Parsons. “This important project will collect and manage the data and performance measures that will allow our ITS systems to maximise mobility and minimise the impact of traffic incidents.”
“This particular implementation leverages the full capabilities of our IoT and data analytics platform and is an excellent example of how our systems are enabling smart city solutions to deliver measurable benefits to the travelling public,” added Amine Haoui, CEO, Sensys Networks.
