Hand-Held Diagnostic Controller for ITS Field Maintenance

The Hand-Held Diagnostic Controller is a device that enables field technicians to control Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) field elements and have a diagnostic platform for troubleshooting devices that are not working properly. This task builds on work previously done in-house by students and produces a deployable prototype to be tested in the districts. Work includes creating the sv170 protocol module for the Caltrans Model 500 series Changeable Message Signs, Cohu, Pelco and Sony Visca protocols for the camera units used within California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). Also included is the interface module and all supporting modules needed to produce a Hand-Held Diagnostic Controller. This task will also focus on documentation of the modules, as well as creating stubs for future field element development.
