Matthew Juckes of TSS-Transport Simulation Systems reports on the latest developments in the pioneering San Diego I-15 integrated corridor management system:
Thanks in large part to the success of the ICM system, USDOT recently added the SANDAG ICM network to the Dynamic Mobility Applications (DMA)-Active Transportation and Demand Management (ATDM Analysis, Modeling and Simulation (AMS) Testbed Project.
The vision is to develop high-fidelity analytical tools and a platform to test the new and evolving concepts with high resolution and to mimic real-world operations in a simulation environment. The proliferation of ITS applications coupled with SANDAG´s deep and pioneering use of modeling for planning and operations, has made the San Diego I-15 model the perfect testbed for both ATDM and DMA.
The ICM network will be used to assess the role that predictions play within ATDM and the sensitivity of the duration of a prediction on the effectiveness of a decision support system. Furthermore, the Intelligent Network Flow Optimization (INFLO) and Multi-Modal Intelligent Traffic Signal Systems (MMITSS) will be incorporated into the network to test the implementation of these DMA approaches.
