The annual report of the Mn/DOT OTST ITS Section’s funded activities for the 2010 fiscal year describe the results of deployed and ongoing ITS projects.
- Determine how arterial travel time information should be displayed on Dynamic Message Signs and websites through input from focus groups and customer surveys
- Deploy and evaluate the accuracy of two arterial time estimation methods using real-time data.
- Using one or both systems, deploy actual real-time arterial travel time messages on dynamic message signs and on a test website
- Obtain feedback from the motoring public to determine the usefulness of the information provided.
Arterial Travel Time Information Systems (ATTIS) provide accurate and useful arterial travel time information to drivers.
