THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN ACRONYM AND GRAPHIC FOR ADVANCED TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT SYSTEM IN AUCKLAND AND PROGRESS ON EARLY DEPLOYMENT

As part of the early development of an Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) for Auckland, New Zealand, an acronym and graphic representation was produced. It was essential that the acronym and graphic illustrated the connotation of the proposed ATMS project. COMPASS - Computer Operated Management Point of Auckland Street Systems - was chosen and a graphic illustration in poster format was generated. The aims of operating an Advanced Traffic Management System in Auckland are to improve the safety and efficiency of the Auckland motorway and roading network. This will be achieved by implementing a high technology traffic counting and monitoring system (inductive loops at 500 metre intervals for future incident detection algorithms), a video detection traffic counting subsystem, CCTV variable message signs and a highway advisory radio. COMPASS will be the traffic management control centre and house micro computers, TV monitors, Time lapse recorders, Pan-Tilt-Zoom Controls, Printers Phone Systems and the necessary personnel to effectively manage the day to day operation.
