|The system facilitates the supervision of event management for
establishing and enhancing real-time transportation management and traffic
control in the County. The system allows multiple categories of users to
participate in event management, incident management, developing traffic control
strategies, and retrieving and evaluating results. The system provides reports
that include system performance data. In addition to standard reports included
with KITS, the user can create customized reports that can use data available
from the relational database. KITS provides the following primary modes of
- Manually controlled system elements. The user with proper privileges can select
a timing plan to run for a particular intersection. This plan will continue to
run until it is canceled.
- Time-Of-Day system elements controlled via an automated time-of-day schedule.
This includes intersections as well as cameras and the video wall, if these
elements are included with the deployed version of KITS.
- Traffic Responsive system elements controlled based on responses to traffic flow
data received from sensors on the roadway.
