Via ITS-JPO press release
The ITS-JPO has published the research report, South Florida Freight Advanced Traveler Information System: Architecture and Implementation As Built Documentation Report. The primary purpose of the As Built Documentation is to provide a description of any modifications made to the original architecture along with justification as to why the architecture was changed. In addition, this documentation provides the following: software and hardware included in the South Florida FRATIS system (including versions, models); system usage (how was the system used); level of effort required to develop the system (staff hour estimates for design, development, etc.); system cost information (upfront costs and recurring costs); and scalability of the system (how can the system be expanded).
The ITS-JPO has also published the research report, Transit Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) Applications: Near Term Research and Development Transit Traveler Information Infrastructure Mobility Application: Operational Concept. This document serves as an Operational Concept for the Transit Traveler Information Infrastructure Mobility Application. The purpose of this document is to provide an operational description of "how" the Transit Traveler Information Infrastructure Mobility Application may operate. The Transit Traveler Information Infrastructure Mobility Application connects transit vehicles and travelers to nearby infrastructure, such as a smart intersection, smart bus stop and smart parking. For example, transit vehicles would communicate with transit stops to provide travelers information on approaching vehicles, such as passenger loads, available disability seating, bicycle rack availability, fare information, etc. The application would support dynamic trip planning at transit stops. The Operational Concept discusses the following scenarios:
- Scenario 1: V2I (and I2V) traveler information and dynamic trip planning at bus stops for travelers without personal information devices.
- Scenario 2: V2I (and I2V) traveler information and dynamic trip planning at bus stops for travelers with personal information devices.
This document is intended to convey at a high-level how the application may work, so others may design and implement systems in the future. As such, the Transit V2I Operational Concept documents are "generalized" and not specific to a geographic area, an operating entity (e.g., transit agency), existing systems that may be in place for a region, agency operating procedures, nor political environment.
