  • Abstract:
    The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) depicts Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) as an integrated system

    to improve safety and mobility and enhance productivity through the use of advanced information and communication

    technologies. Traffi c surveillance and monitoring systems are key components of existing architectures of ITS, which

    primarily rely on an array of information and communication technologies. In the state of Louisiana, the ITS program

    has been rapidly evolving in the past few years. Major ITS instrumentation eff orts have been made on highways in order

    to allow state transportation authorities to better serve the traveling public. In order to achieve this goal, there is a

    pressing need to use current and future ITS data to improve various operational and management functions at the traffi c

    management center and other state agencies. This requires state agencies to collect, store, and analyze as much ITS

    data as possible to maximize the effi ciency of existing transportation networks. This has raised a need for a permanent

    facility to house and process ITS data collected from remote locations within the state of Louisiana. Such a facility is

    envisioned to serve academics, researchers, and practitioners in diff erent capacities as well as lend itself as a tool to

    inspire interest in the fi eld of advanced traffi c management systems among students from within and outside Louisiana.
