DISTRIBUTED VIDEO SENSORS PROVIDE AUTOMATED SURVEILLANCE OF TRAFFIC FLOW ON THE LONG ISLAND EXPRESSWAY

Advanced Traffic Management Systems (ATMS) are designed to provide real time traffic monitoring, situation assessment, and response capability to the traffic engineer. In an urban freeway environment, incident management is one of the most critical and effective elements of an ATMS system. Incident management involves the rapid detection, confirmation and response to incidents such as vehicle accidents and breakdowns. This paper discusses the Traffic Flow Visualization and Control (TFVC) System under development for implementation on the Long Island Expressway in New York. The purpose of this system is to significantly improve the incident management capacity for the New York State Department of Transportation.
