Architecture Flow Definitions

emergency plan coordination  (Planned)  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  (Planned)  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  (Planned)  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  (Planned)  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.

emergency traffic control request  (Planned)  Applicable ITS Standards

Special request to preempt the current traffic control strategy in effect at one or more signalized intersections or highway segments, activate traffic control and closure systems such as gates and barriers, activate safeguard systems, or use driver information systems. For example, this flow can request all signals to red-flash, request a progression of traffic control preemptions along an emergency vehicle route, request a specific evacuation traffic control plan, request activation of a road closure barrier system, or place a public safety or emergency-related message on a dynamic message sign.

evacuation information  (Planned)  Applicable ITS Standards

Evacuation instructions and information including evacuation zones, evacuation times, and reentry times.

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.

remote surveillance control  (Planned)  Applicable ITS Standards

The control commands used to remotely operate another center's sensors or surveillance equipment so that roadside surveillance assets can be shared by more than one agency.

resource deployment status  (Planned)  Applicable ITS Standards

Status of resource deployment identifying the resources (vehicles, equipment, materials, and personnel) available and their current status. General resource inventory information and specific status of deployed resources may be included.

resource request  (Planned)  Applicable ITS Standards

A request for resources to implement special traffic control measures, assist in clean up, verify an incident, etc. The request may poll for resource availability or request pre-staging, staging, or immediate deployment of resources. Resources may be explicitly requested or a service may be requested and the specific resource deployment may be determined by the responding agency.

road closure notification  (Future)  Applicable ITS Standards

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

transportation system status  (Planned)  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.
