Application of an ITS (Sub) Regional Architecture and Support for a Multi-Agency Video Interoperabilty, Integration & Management Platform

The New York State Department of Transportation Region 11 (New York City Region) has one of the busiest and most recognized public transportation systems in the nation. The construction of a state-of-the-art Joint Transportation Management Center (JTMC) facility in New York City has been a multi-year effort and will be key to safely reducing congestion and efficiently moving people, goods, services and information vital to the economy of both the State and City of New York. It will provide the necessary correlation and investigative procedures that are unique to this environment. The ability to manage incidents or situations while monitoring events in real time will allow partner agencies to better handle movement in high business urban management centers such as New York City. This paper will introduce a strategy for a large, multi-stakeholder program for improved transportation safety and traffic management and the critical software platform to implement that strategy. It specifically addresses the need to integrate existing field devices along with emerging technologies including wide ranging data sources and automated situation management to improve the performance of the overall traffic network. Innovative yet very challenging due to a number of complexities, this effort was consistent with the initiatives and general vision set forth over the last decade or so by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
