Computerized Highway Information Processing System “CHIPS” is a patented software/web-based system that is the core of an ITS solution. The web-based system provides a central location to monitor, track and control all ITS field devices in a secure and easy-to-use application.
By providing secure log-in access, the web-based system allows all approved users to have administration rights to not only view all real time traffic conditions, but also respond to incidents as quickly as they occur. This can include monitoring of all lanes to capture speed, volume, density and vehicle classification.
That data capture can then be disseminated via the website as well as a direct XML feed to stakeholders. The data can then provide historical scenarios, trends and forecasting for future project design. The real time data collection is then utilized to provide an automated message to the message board fleet that will then empower the traveling public to make informed decisions.
This can include alternate routing, trip planning or simply providing a safer experience when entering a live work zone. Some of the examples of these systems include, but are not limited to:
• Real Time Traffic Management
• Smart Work Zone Systems
• Automated Work Zone ITS
• Dynamic Merge Solutions
• Travel Time Systems
