  Intelligent Transportation System Intelligent Transportation System Floating car data/floating cellular data • "Floating car" or "probe" data collection is a set of relatively low-cost methods for obtaining travel time and speed data for vehicles travelling along streets, highways, motorways (freeways), and other transport routes. Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) is the integration of communication and technology systems to improve road traffic conditions, safety and mobility. ITS also provides for the integration and coordination of multiple agencies in jurisdictions within a region to improve total travel networks, not just one facility or service. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) provides stewardship over the construction, maintenance and preservation of the Nation's highways, bridges and tunnels. FHWA also conducts research and provides technical assistance to state and local agencies to improve safety, mobility, and to encourage innovation.

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) can be utilized in highway work zones to help improve public safety and mobility. The resulting systems are commonly referred to as "Smart Work Zones" (SWZ) because they leverage the information derived from the ITS equipment to improve operations within and around the work zones.

We helped write the book on Smart Work Zones. We don’t tell you this to brag – we tell you this because we are passionate about saving lives within highway work zones and want to share the best practices we’ve learned along the way.

Since Department of Transportation professionals and Traffic Engineers have turned to the Street Smart team for assistance in. In the last decade, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) have increasingly been deployed in work zones by state departments of transportation.

Also known as smart work zone systems they improve traffic operations and safety by providing real-time information to travelers, monitoring traffic conditions, and managing incidents.

Although there have been numerous ITS. Additional Physical Format: Print version: Intelligent transportation systems for work zones (OCoLC) Material Type: Document, Government publication, National government publication, Internet resource.
