ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF FREEWAY INCIDENT RESPONSE SYSTEMS
The report describes the analysis and design of freeway incident response systems. The study covers four major parts: (1) the identification of the essential components and the alternative types of an incident response system, (2) the discussion of the important factors to be considered in system design, (3) the analysis of individual system components, and (4) the optimal integration of system components in a total system under a given cost constraint. As a result of the analyses of individual system components and their interactions in a total system, a methodology was developed for the optimal design of an incident response system for a given cost. Numerical examples were presented to illustrate the application of such a methodology and sensitivity analyses on alternative system types were performed.
