Incident Delay Estimation and Associate Benefits

  • Sponsor: Florida Department of Transportation
  • Contact: Dr. Mohammed Hadi, (305) 348-0092, hadim@fiu.edu

  • The objectives of this project are:
    1. Develop a tool that estimates incident delay and queue length in real-time based on TSS detector data and output incident delay in a text file for use by SunGuide software modules (e.g., for the information to be disseminated using DMS or 511 subsystems).
    2. Verify the accuracy of the estimated delay by the developed software.
    3. Produce a video that displays the impacts of an incident incremented on a continuous basis for use to illustrate incident impacts to stakeholders.
    4. Produce a high level estimates of the benefits of arterial DMS resulting from diversion in case of mainline incidents
    5. Produce an estimate of the benefits of sharing TMC information with other agencies.
