Development of Intelligent Transportation System Data Management Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The intelligent transportation system (ITS) components deployed in U.S. urban areas produce vast amounts of data. These ITS data often are used for real-time operations and then are discarded. Few transportation management centers have any mechanism for sharing the data resources among other transportation groups or agencies within the same jurisdiction. Meanwhile, transportation analysts and researchers often struggle to obtain accurate, reliable data about existing transportation performance and patterns. The development of an ITS data management system (referred to as ITS DataLink) that is used to store, access, analyze, and present data from the TransGuide center in San Antonio, Texas, is presented. Data outputs are both tabular and graphical. No user costs are associated with the system except for an Internet connection.
