  • This project has developed decision support tools that utilize data collection, archiving, fusion, mining, and analysis to support optimized implementation and operation of Intelligent Transportation systems by traffic management centers (TMCs). A number of tools and algorithms were developed as part of this project based on collected and archived ITS detector data including:
    • Data filtering, imputation, smoothing, and aggregation algorithms and tools
    • New estimation method of travel time based on detector data
    • Estimation of incident timeline
    • Estimation of traffic diversion
    • Predicting incident duration, impacts, and severity
    • Predicting the potential for secondary incidents
