A Multi-Criteria Framework for Evaluation of ITS Benefits

This paper describes how the field of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) has radically changed the way transportation problems are solved. In this research a framework for deployment of ITS applications is developed that will ensure effective management of incidents. The study focuses on improving safety of the access controlled highways using such deployments. A decision-making methodology called ELECTRE I is used for selecting the best deployment strategy. The different alternative strategies are evaluated using the software tool ITS Deployment Analysis System (IDAS) in and Highway Capacity Manual procedures to develop an overall benefits evaluation strategy that synthesizes both operational and economic benefits of different ITS strategies.
