TRANSMIT: TRANSCOM'S SYSTEM FOR MANAGING INCIDENTS AND TRAFFIC

The TRANSCOM System for Managing Incidents and Traffic (TRANSMIT) was initiated to establish the feasibility of using Electronic Toll and Traffic Management (ETTM) equipment for traffic surveillance and incident detection applications. ETTM technology offers the potential for using vehicles equipped with toll tags to serve as vehicle probes within the traffic stream of the area for which surveillance is being established. It requires the installation of readers with the capability of identifying the "tagged" vehicles, at periodic intervals, along the roadway.
