WIDE AREA DETECTION
This paper highlights the findings and opinions of the Wide Area Detection workshop committee as follows: Concept Definition - the committee's outlook on determining just what exactly is meant by the term "wide area detection." Applications - some of the more prominent uses for which WAD can be utilized. Detection Features - the committee's views on the defining issues and characteristics which distinguish what types of WAD systems are state-of-the-art, emerging/cutting-edge or "down-the-road." Matrix match-up - a graphical display which illustrates the committee's opinions on how best to pair certain WAD detection features to prominent applications in order to provide insight/understanding of what WAD systems are in use now, available soon or potential technologies. Recommendations - the committee's outlook on WAD's importance within ATMS as well as ideas on potential focus areas.
- First in a series on Management of Traffic Systems conducted by Alberto J. Santiago and Sam Yagar on behalf of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
