Motorists throughout the United States rely on a complex network of highways, signalized arterial roadways, toll roads, transit, and bridges and tunnels, to get to work, move freight, and most importantly, drive the Nation’s economy.
This complex multimodal transportation network provides for the movement of commuters, goods, and services. However, this same network also plays a critical role in the national transportation network that connects the states in the northeast with the rest of the country, as well as internationally, with Canada and Mexico. The movement of people and goods throughout the country by road and rail has a direct impact on the nation’s economy.
Highway and transit agencies must be able to monitor road and rail conditions, in real time for this complex network to perform efficiently. They rely on the cooperation of transportation agencies, law enforcement and first responders to act together in a coordinated manner to clear an incident and get the traffic moving again as quickly as possible. Traffic and Transit Management Centers (TMCs) are the epicenter of where this monitoring and multidisciplinary coordination happens.
When the first TMCs opened, they relied heavily on the “technology” of the day to monitoring conditions. This “technology” included CCTV cameras, monitoring state and local police and fire scanners and entering incident information into excel spreadsheets or access databases.
But as technology has changed, so has the role of the TMC.
Today, Traffic Management Centers are staffed by operators that rely on a suite of technologies that monitor traffic conditions in real time. From video analytics to pushing travel time messages to Dynamic Message Boards, to logging incident data more precisely, the TMC is an integral part of keeping traffic and transit facilities operating at their peak.
However, these new technologies have created a tremendous increase in the amount of data an operator now much process as well as an increased demand for more accurate and timely information from agency executives and the motoring public. Therefore, these same Traffic Management Centers need to consolidate, streamline work, and provide greater granularity of information in a shorter amount of time.
This is where the Transview Regional Event Information Exchange, or, “T-REX” will help Traffic Management Center Staff do their jobs better and more efficiently.
