AUTOMATIC TRANSIT LOCATION SYSTEM. FINAL REPORT

This project provides a state-of-the-art review of Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) technologies which highlights King County METRO Transit's AVL System. This project further demonstrated the use of real-time transit information derived from the Metro AVL system to produce a prototypical display of real-time transit coach locations suitable for wide area Advanced Traveler Information System (ATIS) use. This project demonstrated the viability of combining multi-agency data with different technology roots in a single development environment that encourages interagency collaboration in the creation of ITS applications and services. This was accomplished in a rich and flexible development environment, created at the University of Washington and used to leverage a proprietary AVL system to a public ATIS prototype.
