A monitoring system that provides data in real-time or near real-time to an intelligent decision support system (IDSS) that will, in turn, provide advance warning to traffic management officials, public safety officials, and motorists.
The 24/7 work zone remote monitoring system is formed by the Remote Traffic Microwave Sensor (RMTS), video monitoring and other work zone sensors. The integrated system takes the input from the monitors and feeds it to an IDSS that, in turn, informs the appropriate personnel who incorporate measures that improve safety and create an effective traffic flow.
Both IDSS and monitoring system are controlled by a simple, efficient, and user-friendly Graphical User Interface (GUI) system.
