AMS Objectives for the I-210 Pilot

The objectives for analysis, modeling, and simulation follow from the scope of the I-210 Pilot.  Based on this project scope, the AMS effort focuses on incidents and incident management and aims to:

  1. Understand key challenges in providing efficient traffic operations along the corridor during incidents
  2. Demonstrate integrated freeway and arterial simulation capabilities that capture “on the ground” conditions
  3. Generate corridor-level metrics to characterize operations
  4. Simulate the effects of incidents and management options that improve operations, using control strategies based on ramp meters, signal lights, and the managed routing of travelers (roads, transit, etc.)
