Development of a Network-level Evaluation Tool for Managing ITS Infrastructure

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has deployed many ITS devices and currently operates 431 traffic surveillance cameras, 179 dynamic message signs, and 380 vehicle detectors for mobility, safety, productivity, energy and environment, and customer satisfaction. MDOT’s ITS focuses on traffic incident management and provides freeway courtesy patrol services as well. MDOT ITS has been effective with a cost-benefit ratio of 3.16. However, as the number of devices increases, there is a need for analyzing the network wide performance in order to manage the ITS infrastructure in a cost-effective manner. The research will investigate if there are redundancy, gaps, or additional needs in ITS deployment for better ITS services, and determine optimal placement of ITS devices.
