Lesson Background HTML
The New York Department of Transportation and the U.S. Department of Transportation sponsored the Advanced Traveler Information System (ATIS) Implementation and Integration Project project from 2003 through 2007. The goal of the project was to create and integrate a real-time, probe-based ATIS in the New York's Capital District, which is the region surrounding the state capital of Albany. To capture traffic conditions, NYSDOT equipped 200 probe vehicles with Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and wireless data connections. The probe vehicles transmitted real-time traffic data to Traffic Operations Centers, which processed and distributed the data as traveler information.
