|KITS provides a wealth of traffic control and traffic
engineering features designed to enhance traffic flow on arterial networks.
These functions have been developed and refined over 15 years of continuous
|Traffic control features include support for the following modes
of operation: TOD Schedules, Event Schedules, Traffic Responsive, and Manual
Command. These modes of operation can be selected on a time-of-day basis or by
operator command. Similarly, intersections can be assigned to a different
control section by TOD schedule or operator command. A traffic control summary
report allows the operator to quickly identify active control modes across the
full extent of the system. In addition, a current command display provides a
list of all active manual commands.

This flexibility allows the traffic engineer
to configure and refine the system to meet the demands of predictable traffic
patterns. KITS functionality goes well beyond control of the predictable. A
commonsense approach to congestion management provides additional features
designed to mitigate unusual traffic conditions created by incidents, weather,
or other causes.
- Collection and reporting of detector data including volume, occupancy, and speed
for planning and timing plan development Editing of signal controller
databases including edit, download, upload, and import functions.
- Integrated time/space diagram with drag-and-drop offset modification.
- Real-time coordination logic display.

|KITS provides a comprehensive database capability to record and track incidents over time. An operator that
manages an incident can edit and store a wide range of information related to the incident. This data is available
through reports for historical analysis.

|KITS provides comprehensive security provisions that can be tailored to meet an agency's needs.
An operator with administrative security access can configure roles within the system.
|Effective maintenance of transportation system components is critical to successful traffic operations.
KITS provides equipment monitoring, failure alerts, diagnostic displays, and historical tracking of all system components.
