TCAM - AN OPEN DATA NETWORK FOR TRAFFIC SYSTEMS

The present London urban traffic control (UTC) system uses data transmission and out station equipment due for replacement. Theis paper outlines the development by Microsense Systems of a new data transmission system known as the Traffic Control and Monitoring system (TCAM). The characteristics required of the system are listed. A network design based on the ISO Seven Layer Model was chosen using existing protocols and hardware. The high-level protocol chosen to handle data transfers over the whole network is TCP/IP. The advantages of the system and problems encountered are outlined. Advantages include the ability to handle increasing amounts of data and for the system to be easily upgraded. For the covering abstract see IRRD 880251.
