PORTABLE TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT SYSTEM SHOWS PROMISE FOR EASING CONGESTION

A portable, real-time traffic management system has been developed that is capable of establishing traffic management in hours. It provides motorists with up-to-the-minute information and allows one person to efficiently monitor and control traffic in many areas from a central location. This article explains how the Minnesota Department of Transportation has implemented the portable system and its role in the state's overall intelligent transportation system. The portable system uses communications, vehicle detection and surveillance, driver information, and a traffic control center to expedite traffic flow.
