Corridor Impacts of an Existing ATMIS System:Detroit Case Study 981894
Various freeway segments in metropolitan Detroit are currently equipped with an advanced traffic management and information system (ATMIS). The ATMIS is expected to have improved the performance of the Detroit metropolitan transportation system. This improvement, however, has been difficult to quantify due to the absence of pre-ATMIS data.
This paper presents the experimental plan and expected outcomes for an ongoing study examining the effectiveness of the existing ATMIS within an 8 by 5 km section of the M-10 (Lodge) Freeway corridor in Detroit, Michigan. The experimental plan proposes to quantify, through simulation, the impacts of the existing ATMIS and to estimate the benefit of ATMIS components' integration and enhancement.
