  • Improving mobility: today, tomorrow, and the day after Pravin Varaiya
  • Slide 7
  • 7 Preface The incorporation of IT at all levels of the transportation system can greatly enhance productivity Examples from Los Angeles illustrate opportunities to improve freeway system management and assist travelers Automation offers dramatic, long-term, opportunities Exploiting these requires a strong partnership between state, industry, and academia
  • Slide 8
  • 8 Improving performance today: the PeMS system PeMS collects and stores data captured by loop detectors in the States freeways in a central database. PeMS also obtains and stores CHP-published incident data The central database is currently located on the UC Berkeley campus, but it can be accessed from anywhere via the Internet Data are sent from the TMCs to UC Berkeley over the Caltrans wide area network (WAN)
  • Slide 9
  • 9 Improving performance tomorrow: Automated Highway Systems Potential for doubling or tripling highway capacity per lane Ancillary benefits follow in safety, driver comfort/convenience, and energy/emissions Initial applications are likely to be on heavy vehicles (buses, trucks), but the BIG benefits come with light-duty vehicles Automated cars can capture public imagination Were working on deployment staging scenarios
