ITS Applications at HRIs

This task will research current intelligent transportation systems (ITS) related projects to determine the capabilities of such systems to enhance highway-rail interfaces (HRI) safety. Staff will determine if a demonstration program could be adapted to include functions that would enhance HRI safety through additional warning systems such as in-vehcile warnings. Currently, there are three subtasks: Technical Evaluation of Commercial Off-the-shelf (COTS) global positioning system (GPS) Navigation Systems; French and Finnish In-Vehicle System Review; and Conference Participation. This was an FY2008 project.
