  • Abstract:
    ADVANCE (Advanced Driver and Vehicle Advisory Navigation ConcEpt) was a public/private partnership developed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), the University of Illinois at Chicago and Northwestern University operating together under the auspices of the Illinois Universities Transportation Research Consortium (IUTRC), and Motorola, Inc. Subsequently, these four were joined on the Steering Committee by the American Automobile Association (AAA). ADVANCE was a field operational test of dynamic route guidance using vehicle probes as the prime source of real time information. The test measured road network performance, monitored vehicle locations, detected incidents and produced driver guidance information in the context of a suburban arterial network. The ADVANCE test area covered over 300 square miles in the Chicago metropolitan area. The population in the area is more than 750,000. The system architecture of ADVANCE incorporates several key concepts: distributed intelligence (all route planning is performed in the vehicle); a hierarchical road network database (for higher performance in all map-related functions); vehicles as traffic probes (for accumulating real-time information); open (non-proprietary) radio frequency (RF) data communications protocol; and driver interface. The system had four (4) subsystems, namely the Traffic Information Center (TIC) which contains the central processing facility and operator interface; the Traffic Related Functions (TRF) which contains the traffic algorithms, which typically coexist with TIC software on the TIC central computer; the Mobile Navigation Assistant (MNA) which contains in-vehicle route planning and display capabilities; and the Communications subsystem (COM) which provides message carrying capability between the TIC and the MNA. The TIC and the TRF were the direct responsibility of the Universities, while the MNA and the COM were the responsibility of Motorola. The ADVANCE Project's primary role in advancing Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) technology was the operational test of the use of probe vehicles for real-time traffic information on an arterial and expressway network. This information was automatically prepared by on-board equipment and transmitted over a radio frequency data network to the Traffic Information Center (TIC). Closed loop traffic signal detectors and expressway detectors also provided volume and occupancy information at regular intervals which the TIC automatically fused with other data to detect incidents and congestion. Issues of technology, liability, intellectual and property rights, project management styles, and desired project outcomes routinely arose and were resolved during the ADVANCE Project. This compendium summarizes the ADVANCE experience, including obstacles encountered and methods used to overcome them in the development, implementation and deployment of the ADVANCE system. Participants have agreed that the overall experience was challenging and productive: a positive as well as a pioneering example of public/private partnerships to develop state-of-the-art transportation systems.
