Open Source General Public License Traffic Management Software: Sharing TMC Software Using and Open Source General Public License Software

The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MN/DOT) in-house staff developed its own Freeway Management System control software called Intelligent Roadway Information System (IRIS). IRIS employs other open source software in its overall operation that has proven to be very reliable, technically advanced and very economical. This paper describes the IRIS software, the reasons why MN/DOT has decided to make IRIS available to other agencies as GPL software and the current status of the assessment of IRIS by other agencies.
