Architecture Flow Definitions

incident information  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Notification of existence of incident and expected severity, location, time and nature of incident. As additional information is gathered and the incident evolves, updated incident information is provided. Incidents include any event that impacts transportation system operation ranging from routine incidents (e.g., disabled vehicle at the side of the road) through large–scale natural or human–caused disasters that involve loss of life, injuries, extensive property damage, and multi–jurisdictional response. This also includes special events, closures, and other planned events that may impact the transportation system.

maint and constr resource request  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Request for road maintenance and construction resources that can be used in the diversion of traffic (cones, portable signs), clearance of a road hazard, repair of ancillary damage, or any other incident response. The request may poll for resource availability or request pre–staging, staging, or immediate dispatch of resources.

maint and constr resource response  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Current status of maintenance and construction resources including availability and deployment status. General resource inventory information covering vehicles, equipment, materials, and people and specific resource deployment status may be included.

road weather information  (Medium-term)  Applicable ITS Standards

Road conditions and weather information that are made available by road maintenance operations to other transportation system operators.

roadway maintenance status  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Summary of maintenance fleet operations affecting the road network. This includes the status of winter maintenance (snow plow schedule and current status).

traffic images  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

High fidelity, real–time traffic images suitable for surveillance monitoring by the operator or for use in machine vision applications. This flow includes the images and meta data that describes the images.

work zone information  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Summary of maintenance and construction work zone activities affecting the road network including the nature of the maintenance or construction activity, location, impact to the roadway, expected time(s) and duration of impact, anticipated delays, alternate routes, and suggested speed limits. This information may be augmented with images that provide a visual indication of current work zone status and traffic impacts.
