Tim coordination meeting capability for consideration
TIM Coordination Meeting:Capability for Consideration

  • Link to Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system, which is a standard, statewide system. SunGuideSM has a C2C capability through which CAD data could be transmitted but logic would need to be added when received in SunGuideSM.

  • Some districts have adopted three levels of incidents based on both severity (length) of the incident and lane closures. This was not in the IM requirements per se (there are three “levels”: Minor, Moderate and Severe that are functions of user-defined percentages of lanes blocked). The new MUTCD uses three levels based on time (which are similar to Florida’s time-based criteria. The conclusion was that the definition of incident severity (and their labels) should be user configurable, and that the history of an incident’s evolution should be fully reproducible. (Note: there must be some commonalities in order to report and measure performance at a statewide level.)

  • District 4 has proposed a standard template for DMS messages that is being implemented in SunGuideSM.

SunGuide Status Meeting

TIM Coordination Meeting:Capability for Consideration – con’t

  • The software should associate a lane configuration with each TSS link on the map. When the operator clicks on a link to create an incident, automatically pre-select the lane configuration associated with that link. (Currently, when an operator creates an incident, they must manually choose a lane configuration for the location associated with the incident.)

  • In the message sign control GUI, add a way to bring up a camera that can see the sign, in order to confirm message activation.

  • When logging incident data, include TSS data so that “end of congestion” time can be tracked as well as closure of incidents.

  • The TIM group suggested identifying incident data by region (rural and urban), route, number of accidents, time to clear and recover from incidents, vehicle types, and highest location of incidents. The TIM Group needs to refine these requirements, including explicit reporting requirements.

SunGuide Status Meeting


Tim coordination meeting capability for consideration con t1
TIM Coordination Meeting:Capability for Consideration – con’t

  • It was suggested that incidents should identify types of vehicles involved in the incident (CV/auto, auto/auto, CV/CV, multiple vehicles of all types, etc.).

  • SunGuideSM needs to include the statewide TIM performance measures currently being researched.

  • SunGuideSM ‘s geo-location system is based entirely on lat-long. It will be important to add mile marker locations, particularly in view of a possible deployment of location reference markers extensively throughout the state. This process needs to be automated. Also, freeway cross streets are common reference points, so a quicker way for operators to locate them is desirable. Similarly, it needs to be determined whether it is necessary to include the link-node system.

  • SunGuideSM has a flag to indicate that a hazardous material is involved in the incident, but the type of material is not captured. A set of HAZMAT categories at least, or actual chemicals at most, should be added.

SunGuide Status Meeting


Tim coordination meeting capability for consideration con t2
TIM Coordination Meeting:Capability for Consideration – con’t

  • It is further suggested that other data, such as ambient lighting, be added. The TIM Program will need to specify all such data that are not currently being captured.

  • The contacts list currently has to be created for each incident. The capability to have contact groups should be added, and incidents should be able to have pre-designated groups to notify, by severity level and perhaps even other criteria. (Note: these pre-designated groups would be a minimum given the incident.)

  • Dispatching of Road Rangers should be automated in the software.

  • The use of PDAs for Road Ranger logging needs to be recognized and the ability to upload these data be added.

  • Consider changing the DMS editor to allow selecting multiple signs to update with the same message, dragging one sign into another to copy text, etc. Also, when adding a sign to an incident response plan midstream, allow its proposed message to be populated automatically.

  • Add Incident Management reporting capabilities. Districts are to submit examples of their desired reports.

Hands on training
Hands-On Training

  • On November 5, 2004 SwRI received the following comment:

    • Section 2.1.9 – Page 6: It states that this is not a hands on Training Course. This needs to be so the operators will get a feel and fully understand how to operate the system.

  • SwRI’s Position:

    • SwRI received request for hands-on training.

    • SwRI had planned on having a laptop version of the software for the instructor to use.

    • Happy to alter the training for hands-on.

    • Problem is hardware. Will the Districts have a test environment with field equipment to support training?

  • Discussion?

Canoga loop background
Canoga Loop Background

  • Limitations of older 3M devices: must poll the device often (essentially every vehicle):

    • C822/C824

    • C922/C924 (new version of the above)

  • 3M has a newer product:

    • "Traffic Monitoring Card" (numbered as 942/944)

    • Works in conjunction with the C922/C924

    • Provides the capability to establish a monitoring interval in the range of 1 second to 15 minutes

    • Driver can then poll at this interval, the device will provide average speed, occupancy, volume for the specified interval

    • The device can be polled for the last 300 intervals (i.e. it keeps a history of 300 intervals) or you can request the data for the last 500 vehicles (i.e. it keeps a history of the last 500 vehicle reads)

  • Same protocol is used for all above devices (some additional messages to support the Traffic Management Card

Canoga loop issues discussion topics
Canoga Loop Issues:Discussion Topics

  • Use of 170 controllers

    • SwRI would recommend using SunGuideSM application servers rather than 170s if the communications infrastructure supports the protocol bandwidth

  • Price of Canoga units

    • How do they compare to RTMS or other devices?

  • Installation costs

    • How do they compare to other devices?

  • Does FDOT want a Canoga driver for SunGuideSM?
