Warrants for ITS Devices – Results of Warrants Testing to Date

Transportation agencies considering the deployment of technology devices to support either operations or maintenance activities often must perform cost/benefit analyses during the planning and design phase. While the costs of these devices are easily quantified, it is often difficult to assign dollar value equivalents to the benefits of such devices. The ENTERPRISE Pooled Fund Study ‘Warrants Project’ has investigated the concept of warrants to determine whether technology devices (specifically ITS devices) should be considered for deployment at specific locations. This project was a pilot study to explore the feasibility of warrants for technology devices. Six state departments of transportation (DOTs), one Canadian province, and the Dutch DOT have participated in development and testing of these warrants. This paper summarizes the testing results and the concept for ongoing use of the warrants.
