The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has selected Open Roads Consulting (Open Roads) to design and implement the state’s Next-Generation Advanced Traffic Management System (Next Gen ATMS). The Open Roads Team includes: Gannett Fleming, Pennoni Associates, Berkeley Transportation Systems (a business unit division of Iteris), Advantage Engineering Associates, and Pemcco. The project includes services to design, develop, implement, test, maintain, and support a single platform that will promote coordinated traffic management and operations across the state.
Open Roads will design and implement the Next Gen ATMS using a version of its configurable and scalable OpenTMS software platform, which includes a browser-based graphical user interface and modules to support: intelligent responses to incidents and planned events; shared control of all existing and future ITS field devices; data fusion and travel time computation; asset management; and integration with existing PennDOT, business partner and adjacent state systems. The OpenTMS platform provides a constantly evolving suite of components that are easily plugged into its GIS map-based core framework, which includes a SQL database for extensive logging and data collection. The system is capable of running all: video sources, variable message signs (VMS), environmental sensor systems, traffic sensor systems and a highway advisory radio system.
Barbara Skiffington, president of Open Roads, commented, “We are excited to win this prestigious project. PennDOT has been at the forefront of ITS deployments and operations, so it is most gratifying to be recognized by such a progressive agency and be awarded this critical assignment. This win is a testament to the talent and the technology expertise that the Open Roads team brings to PennDOT. We look forward to partnering with the agency to deliver a robust and successful Next Gen ATMS.”
