REMOTE MONITORING & CONTROL Intelligent Transportation Systems Support Wide Range of Applications Submitted by TESSCO Technologies "Wireless technology provides a flexible solution for the communications infrastructure required to support ITS." Whether you are installing a new variable message sign, upgrading your surveillance cameras from analog to IP or bringing a new stretch of highway onto your traffic management system, TESSCO is the partner you need to build and maintain an infrastructure reliable enough for your critical communications. We understand the challenges of building a new communications infrastructure, not to mention ensuring it works with other, existing networks. From product selection to custom engineering, physical product configuration to supply chain solutions, TESSCO's proven framework for architecting and deploying high-performance networks adapts to your unique objectives. Intelligent transportation systems (ITS) use technology to improve management of transportation resources. ITS can provide benefits in traffic control, incident management, driver and pe- destrian safety, efficiency of freight deliveries and more. Advances in technology are allowing for even more ways to monitor and manage our highways and public transportation. ITS supports a wide range of applications, everything from providing security at train stations and tracking the location of city buses to managing daily traffic pat- terns and communicating real time with commuters. A common application of ITS is the use of remote sensors to monitor road conditions. Remote sensors can monitor weather conditions, allowingtransportation authorities to track areas which are prone to freezing. Other sensors monitor the speed of traffic, providing information on delays from such sources as congestion and accidents. Data from these sensors can be uti- lized in many ways. One sensor that many drivers encounter on their daily commute is variable message signage. These digital signs display informa- tion important to drivers and reflect current conditions. For example, variable mes- sage signs are often used to inform drivers of traffic de- lays or the estimated travel time to the next exit. Regardless of the applica- tion, a common thread throughout these diverse uses is the need to gather and communicate data to and from remote locations. This means getting data, easily and reliably, from points that may be dispersed across a large area and be located in a wide variety of environments. Wireless technology provides a flex- ible solution for the com- munications infrastructure required to support ITS. Wireless networks allow for communication with many sensors in real time. Hardened equipment, such as radios, cameras and rout- ers, are designed to work in harsh environments and help ensure the reliability of your network. To learn more, visit www.tessco.com/go/its.
