FIELD DEPLOYMENT OF MACHINE VISION IN THE OAKLAND COUNTY ATMS/ATIS PROJECT

Advanced Traffic Management Systems (ATMS) is one of the most important areas of the Intelligent Vehicle-Highway Systems (IVHS) program recently established in the U.S. While many ATMS programs are currently in the planning stage, the Road Commission for Oakland County, Michigan (RCOC) has successfully deployed the first Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) in North America that utilizes adaptive, coordinated traffic control of intersections driven, exclusively, by video image processing for vehicle detection. A third component deployed is an Advanced Traveler Information System (ATIS); this provides an infra-red communication link between vehicles and roadside beacons that allows for continuous exchange of traffic and route guidance information with vehicles also acting as probes to determine travel times.
