Anchorage Regional ITS Architecture Update
(2.24.15) AMATS is updating the Anchorage Regional Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Architecture for the Municipality of Anchorage (MOA).
ITS: using advanced technologies and communications systems in an integrated manner to improve the transportation system.
ITS Architecture: a framework that supports sharing of information and data flows between computerized systems.
Some examples of ITS are:
Computerized traffic signal control
Real-time People Mover bus arrival times
People Mover "Smart" Fare Boxes
Easy Park "Smart" Pay by Phone
Provision of real-time traffic condition information to travelers
Enhanced operational efficiency
Road weather information systems
The ITS Architecture does not require that any systems or data flows be implemented. It is a planning tool that helps ensure that needed data can be extracted from future systems as they are implemented.
Draft documents related to the update are available in Current Projects.
