Architecture Flow Definitions

alert notification  (Future)  Applicable ITS Standards

Notification of a major emergency such as a natural or man-made disaster, civil emergency, or child abduction for distribution to the public. The flow identifies the alert originator, the nature of the emergency, the geographic area affected by the emergency, the effective time period, and information and instructions necessary for the public to respond to the alert. This flow may also identify specific information that should not be released to the public.

alert status  (Future)  Applicable ITS Standards

Information indicating the current status of the emergency alert including identification of the traveler and driver information systems that are being used to provide the alert.

emergency plan coordination  (Future)  Applicable ITS Standards

Information that supports coordination of emergency management plans, continuity of operations plans, emergency response and recovery plans, evacuation plans, and other emergency plans between agencies. This includes general plans that are coordinated prior to an incident and shorter duration tactical plans that are prepared during an incident.

emergency route request  (Future)  Applicable ITS Standards

Request for access routes for emergency response vehicles and equipment. This may be a request for ingress or egress routes or other emergency routes.

emergency routes  (Future)  Applicable ITS Standards

Suggested ingress and egress routes for access to and between the scene and staging areas or other specialized emergency access routes.

emergency traffic control information  (Future)  Applicable ITS Standards

Status of a special traffic control strategy or system activation implemented in response to an emergency traffic control request, a request for emergency access routes, a request for evacuation, a request to activate closure systems, a request to employ driver information systems to support public safety objectives, or other special requests. Identifies the selected traffic control strategy and system control status.

incident information  (Planned)  Applicable ITS Standards

Notification of existence of incident and expected severity, location, time and nature of incident. As additional information is gathered and the incident evolves, updated incident information is provided. Incidents include any event that impacts transportation system operation ranging from routine incidents (e.g., disabled vehicle at the side of the road) through large-scale natural or human-caused disasters that involve loss of life, injuries, extensive property damage, and multi-jurisdictional response. This also includes special events, closures, and other planned events that may impact the transportation system.

incident response status  (Planned)  Applicable ITS Standards

Status of the current incident response including a summary of incident status and its impact on the transportation system, traffic management strategies implemented at the site (e.g., closures, diversions, traffic signal control overrides), and current and planned response activities.

road closure notification  (Future)  Applicable ITS Standards

Notification that agency personnel have closed a road due to adverse weather, major incident, or other reason.

road network conditions  (Planned)  Applicable ITS Standards

Current and forecasted traffic information, road and weather conditions, and other road network status. Either raw data, processed data, or some combination of both may be provided by this architecture flow. Information on diversions and alternate routes, closures, and special traffic restrictions (lane/shoulder use, weight restrictions, width restrictions, HOV requirements) in effect is included along with a definition of the links, nodes, and routes that make up the road network.

road network status assessment  (Future)  Applicable ITS Standards

Assessment of damage sustained by the road network including location and extent of the damage, estimate of remaining capacity, required closures, alternate routes, necessary restrictions, and time frame for repair and recovery.

threat information  (Future)  Applicable ITS Standards

Threats regarding transportation infrastructure, facilities, or systems detected by a variety of methods (sensors, surveillance, threat analysis of advisories from outside agencies, etc.

traffic images  (Planned)  

High fidelity, real-time traffic images suitable for surveillance monitoring by the operator or for use in machine vision applications.

transportation system status  (Future)  Applicable ITS Standards

Current status and condition of transportation infrastructure (e.g., tunnels, bridges, interchanges, TMC offices, maintenance facilities). In case of disaster or major incident, this flow provides an assessment of damage sustained by the surface transportation system including location and extent of the damage, estimate of remaining capacity and necessary restrictions, and time frame for repair and recovery.
