SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE DESIGN FOR TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

A Traffic Management System (TMS) will need to process large amounts of data in real-time and perform traffic control functions while retaining adequate system performance and reliability. High standards are to be met, beginning with software system design. From a software standpoint, a TMS consists of several generic functions: data acquisition, data consolidation, data administration, traffic analysis, information delivery, and control processing. This paper presents a cursory view of a TMS software architecture for the IVHS environment. Since realization of a software system design begins with a realization process, a model process is also presented. The multi-vendor/multi-system nature of Advanced TMSs (ATMSs) will necessitate establishing some common software system architectural elements and development processes to provide more uniform integration of system components among different vendors.
