Decision Support Systems for Transportation System Management and Operations (TSM&O)

The goal of this project is to produce a decision support environment that supports the objects and activities of the Transportation System Management and Operations (TSM&O) program. The specific objectives are to: (1) Estimation and analysis of systems performance under different scenarios and influencing factors. (2) Benefit cost analysis of TSM&O strategies. (3) Estimation of the impacts of construction and maintenance activities on system performance. (4) Prediction of breakdown conditions on arterial streets based on system performance. (5) Development of tools for automatic identification of arterial performance problems. (6) Review past Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) research projects related to TSM&O activities for potential incorporation in future versions of the tool.
