Real Time Estimation of Arterial Travel Time and Operational Measures through Integration of Real Time Fixed Sensor Data and Simulation

Project Number: 
09-01
Project Description: 

A wide variety of advanced technological tools have been implemented throughout Georgia’s transportation network to increase its efficiency. These systems are credited with reducing or maintaining freeway congestion levels in light of increasing travel demands. In Georgia these benefits are primarily gained through the Traffic Management Center’s freeway monitoring and quick response in ridding the roadway of any obstacles that may reduce freeway service levels. There have been a number of efforts to leverage the work done by TMCs to provide travelers with more current traffic information such as Georgia 511 and Navigator. In addition, private efforts and partnerships have made the TMC’s information more accessible to travelers, aiding their traveler decisions. The effort presented in this report aims to compliment real-time freeway information by addressing the more limited availability of real-time arterial performance measures.
