Abstract

Since the conception of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) in the 1980s, many transportation researchers have also worked on the development of incident management models and integrated systems for real-time operations. ITS created the required infrastructure for collecting, processing, and managing real-time traffic data that can be used to develop on-line incident management strategies. This book provides the reader with a broad picture of the overall incident management process in the context of ITS along with a quick review of the models and systems developed by numerous researchers worldwide. This book is a direct result of the long-term incident management research efforts at the Virginia Tech Center for Transportation Research. The initial work was performed under work order #DTFH71-DP86-VA-20 given to VDOT by FHWA. In addition to this initial contract, the FHWA Intelligent Transportation Systems Research Center of Excellence (RCE) program and VDOT sponsored different parts of the research described here.
