Streamlining ITS Planning: Identifying Common ITS Needs

Background

On January 8, 2001 the Final Rule on ITS Architecture and Standards Conformity (Final Rule) and the Final Policy on Architecture and Standards Conformity (Final Policy) were enacted by the FHWA and FTA respectively. The Final Rule/Final Policy ensures that Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) projects carried out using funds from the Highway Trust Fund including the Mass Transit Account conform to the National ITS Architecture and applicable ITS standards. This will be accomplished through the development of regional ITS architectures and using a systems engineering process for ITS project development.

The National ITS Architecture provides a common framework for planning, defining, and integrating intelligent transportation systems.

This report documents lessons learned from the deployers of the National ITS Architecture. It provides background on the benefits of using the National ITS Architecture and quotes from deployers about their experiences deploying ITS under the framework of the National ITS Architecture.

The lessons learned cover topics on minimizing the risk and cost of ITS deployments by deploying ITS using the framework provided by the National ITS Architecture. Regions can leverage general standards that the National ITS Architecture identifies to plan for ITS up front, while enabling phased deployment of integrated components over time.

Lessons Learned

Minimize the risk and cost of ITS deployments by deploying ITS using the framework provided by the National ITS Architecture. The National ITS Architecture accommodates multiple designs using diverse technologies of ITS system components. Regions can leverage general standards that the National ITS Architecture identifies to plan for ITS up front, while enabling phased deployment of integrated components over time. Using the National ITS Architecture helps improve the inter-jurisdictional, interagency, and public-private communication of transportation information
