Traffic Management Centers (TMCs) have been described as the heart of an agency’s mobility management system. In practice, TMCs serve as the technical and institutional hubs that facilitate interagency coordination and integrate a wide range of traffic a wide range of traffic management strategies to achieve the collective goal of providing safe, efficient and sustainable transportation infrastructure.
This course introduces scientific principles for forecasting the benefits of road safety projects. The goal is to estimate and defend reductions in fatalities and serious injuries, to assign dollar valuations to proposed improvements, and to compare these benefits to project or program costs.
El final de la primera Década en Acción para Seguridad Vial 2011 – 2020 marcó el inicio de formas internacionales de colaboración para la prevenir la continua y creciente epidemia de los accidentes en carreteras, responsable de 1,350,000 muertes por año.
This course will cover the development and use of needs-based ITS architectures to support the planning and deployment of ITS systems. Then it will illustrate the selection and specification of ITS technology standards and their testing to support interoperable systems.
This course is about learning to design with the human in mind. The human is the most complex and variable element of the transportation system, but professionals who learn the human’s design parameters and how to make infrastructure that is compatible with these parameters will help deliver substantial gains in road safety during the second Decade of Action. The first half of the course provides a theoretical foundation and grounding in understanding human limitations, how humans process information, how humans complete the driving tasks, and how humans end up making errors.
