Efficient Utilization of the Existing ITS System and the Viability of a Proactive Traffic Management System for the Orlando-Orange County Expressway Authority System

The rapid development of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) has triggered new traffic detection technologies to capture the traffic flow characteristics. The data acquired from these systems provide traffic operators and researchers with different perspectives to evaluate their system, pinpoint the potential problems and make targeted improvement. This report documents the efforts to explore the efficient utilization of the ITS systems on the expressway network operated by Central Florida Expressway Authority (CFX). On CFX's system, multiple ITS systems are in deployment. In this report, detailed work using the traffic data from these existing ITS systems has been conducted to identify the potential applications of current ITS systems on CFX's expressways. The applications include evaluation of current expressway operation and potential improvement using the ITS systems. In addition, since traffic safety is another important indicator of system performance and is closely related to operation. Traffic safety performance on the expressways has also been examined.
