PRELIMINARY FINDINGS AND LESSONS LEARNED FROM THE FAST-TRAC IVHS PROGRAM

Since its inception in 1992, the FAST-TRAC program has both expanded and evolved. Over 200 intersections will shortly be under SCATS (Sydney Coordinated Adaptive Traffic System) control, and 60 Ali-Scout equipped vehicles will be navigating the roads of Oakland county, Michigan. A new traffic operations center is the heart of FAST-TRAC operations and systems integration. Preliminary evaluation results reveal that delay has been substantially reduced, accidents (particularly those that result in severe injuries) have dropped, and operational efficiency has been improved within the Road Commission for Oakland County. Other benefits appear to have been gained in the areas of governmental relations and public/private cooperation. The evaluation of the FAST-TRAC IVHS program is underway.
