Effective incident detection, response, clearance, and recovery from vehicle disablements and accidents can save countless commuter hours, gallons of fuel, and thousands of dollars. In this book, the authors describe an integrated traffic incident management system designed to facilitate interagency communication and help transportation officials coordinate response activities so that traffic flow is restored to normal as soon as possible. Using actual data models and based on real-world research, the book shows you how to develop and implement an automated incident management system capable of displaying maps, handling network queries, dispatching response vehicles, estimating incident duration, generating response plans, recommending diversion plans, and facilitating interagency communication.
Introduction. Literature Review of Incident Management Systems. Wide-Area Incident Management Support System (WAIMSS) Software. Duration/Delay Prediction. Development of Incident Response Plan. Heuristic Network Generator. Real-Time Traffic Control Using Feedback Control Techniques. Conclusions and Future Research.
