A Distributed Systems Architecture Integrating Multiple Traffic Management Centres in Sweden

Managing road traffic so as to optimise throughput, minimise delays and maintain safety is a challenging task in the real world, where incidents, events, roadworks and equipment failures all conspire against these goals. Information and Communications Technology has long been employed to assist in many aspects of maintaining a safe and efficient network. Often such systems have been developed in an ad hoc manner, and operators at a traffic management control room will use a number of disparate systems and a great deal of their own knowledge and experience to identify and manage incidents and network flow. This paper considers what a good traffic management system should be. It then describes a framework architecture for such a system, based on the principle of a common user interface integrating a number of cooperating distributed systems – a framework used for the National Traffic Management System in Sweden.
