A.0 Introduction The Inteldigent Transportation Systems (US) goal is to increase He efficiency of the nation's transportation infrastructure by: Using sensors to measure Be ongoing operations and to collect historical statistics, including the use of CCTV cameras for surveillance. Installing signal systems and Freeway Management Systems (FMS)to control the flow of traffic, including integration of multiple, local, regional, and national jurisdictional systems into regional systems. Integrating modes of travel including transit, air, and rail. Developing the fleet management function for CVO, transit, etc. · Fusing data into "one-stop" Advance Traveler Information Systems (ATIS) to provide travelers with reliable, useful information for making travel decisions. A key element in achieving these goals is Me communication of travel-related data from/to field devices, to/from various public or private service providers, and to/from the public. Communication subsystems for these functions often represent 50% of the total system cost, as illustrated in Figure A.O-l, which details costs for several example signal systems. . . . . Transportation planners and managers need to understand communication systems and how to cost-effectively integrate these into their operations and systems. The communication industry is "high tech" and is experiencing rapid evolution that includes digital television, significant new wireless products and services, and high capacity fiber technologies. We will assume a digital communication network as this is Me modern trend that industry is increasingly evolving toward. Digital networks are supported by the most cost- effec~ve components, equipment, systems, and services and this trend will accelerate in the future.

This report is organized as follows: Section A.0 Introduction Section A. 1 Communication Mediums, Protocols, and Terminals Section A.2 ITS Communication System Design Section A.3- Example ITS Communication Designs and Costs Section A.4 Communication System Support Section A.5 Strategies and Tools A.O.1 Extension of Communication Handbook The "Communication Handbook for Traffic Control Systems" (1993) provides a wealth of information on communication mediums. Since its publication, the Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems (IVHS) name has been changed to Intelligent Transportation Systems FITS) to more accurately reflect the desired multimodal charter. This and many advances in communication technologies have broadened the scope of ITS communication requirements, as wed as the array of attractive solutions. This document will extend and supplement the Handbook in several important areas: i. Advancements in communication technology, products, and services. 2. Available standards to support ITS applications. 3. Example architectures for urban, suburban, metropolitan, and rural ITS communication systems, along with system level design examples. (These win include data and procedures for architecture, medium selection, operation and maintenance cost estimating, procurement L:WC~2.~\ NCH~3-51 · P~2Fm~Re ~AO-3

and installation cost estimating, reliability/ma~ntainability planning, and personnel skill requirements to operate and maintain the systems.) 4. garners to procurement of modern communication systems by the ITS community. 5. Example generic data sheets for communication mediums that offer Me most promise for ITS. Topics adequately addressed in the 1993 Handbook will not be repeated here, unless essential for clarity of discussion. A.0.2 The National ITS Program Plan The National ITS Program Plan, First Edition, March 1995, consists of four (4) documents: Volume I, Goals of ITS Volume Il. User Services An Executive Summary A Synopsis ITS deployments and operations will unfold through federal, state, and local partnerships Mat will encourage private company participation in developing and marketing ITS products and services. The National Plan develops the framework to support this evolution. As such, Me National Plan will: Promote shared ITS goals, Guide ITS investment decisions, Encourage coordination, · Maintain a forum on deployment, and · Ensure Mat ITS is intermodal. L:WC~~h~.~\ NCHRP 3-51 · Phase 2 Few Ream AO-4

The National Plan currently identifies 7 User Service Bundles and 29 subordinate User Services, as presented in Table A.0.2-~. Many systems have already been deployed (Table A.0.2-2 from National Plan) that include ITS functionality. These will be integrated, perhaps after upgrading, into future ITS deployments. The plan is actually a mulUphased process that builds upon itself. It is based on participation and input by federal, state, and local government stakeholders plus private stakeholders. It is based on currently defined requirements and visions; however, as it is refined by experience, the National Plan will be modified and subsequent editions published.
