  1. The center shall remotely monitor and control security sensor data collected in secure areas including facilities (e.g. transit yards) and transportation infrastructure (e.g. bridges, tunnels, interchanges, roadway infrastructure, and transit railways or guideways). The types of security sensor data include environmental threat (e.g. chemical agent, toxic industrial chemical, biological, explosives, and radiological sensors), infrastructure condition and integrity, intrusion and motion, and object detection sensors. The data may be raw or pre-processed in the field.
  2. The center shall exchange security sensor data with other emergency centers.
  3. The center shall identify potential security threats based on collected security sensor data.
  4. The center shall disseminate threat information to other agencies, including traffic, transit, maintenance, rail operations, and other emergency management centers.
  5. The center shall request activation of barriers and safeguards on request from center personnel.
  6. The center shall monitor maintenance status of the security sensor field equipment.
Center Secure Area Alarm Support
  1. The center shall collect silent and audible alarms received from travelers in secure areas (such as transit stops, rest areas, park and ride lots, modal interchange facilities).
  2. After the alarm message has been received, the center shall generate an alarm acknowledgment to the sender.
  3. After the alarm message becomes a verified incident, the center shall determine the appropriate response.
  4. The center shall determine whether the alarm message indicates an emergency that requires the attention of public safety agencies, and forward alarm message data to the appropriate agency as necessary.
  5. The center shall forward the alarm message to center personnel and respond to the traveler or transit vehicle operator as directed by the personnel.
Basic Information Broadcast
  1. The center shall disseminate traffic and highway condition information to travelers, including incident information, detours and road closures, event information, recommended routes, and current speeds on specific routes.
  2. The center shall disseminate maintenance and construction information to travelers, including scheduled maintenance and construction work activities and work zone activities.
Collect Traffic Surveillance
  1. The center shall monitor, analyze, and store traffic sensor data (speed, volume, occupancy) collected from field elements under remote control of the center.
  2. The center shall monitor, analyze, and distribute traffic images from CCTV systems under remote control of the center.
  3. The center shall distribute road network conditions data (raw or processed) based on collected and analyzed traffic sensor and surveillance data to other centers.
  4. The center shall maintain a database of surveillance equipment and sensors and associated data (including the roadway on which they are located, the type of data collected, and the ownership of each )
TMC Traffic Metering
  1. The center shall remotely control systems to manage use of the freeways, including ramp, interchange, and mainline metering.
  2. The center shall collect operational status from ramp meters, interchange meters, and mainline meters and compare against the control information sent by the center.
  3. The center shall collect fault data from ramp meters, interchange meters, and mainline meters.
  4. The center shall implement control strategies, under control of center personnel, on some or all of the freeway network devices (e.g. ramp meters, interchange meters, and mainline meters), based on data from sensors monitoring traffic conditions upstream, downstream, and queue data on the approaches to the meters.
TMC Traffic Information Dissemination
  1. The center shall remotely control dynamic messages signs for dissemination of traffic and other information to drivers.
  2. The center shall collect fault data for the driver information systems equipment (DMS, HAR, etc.) for repair.
  3. The center shall retrieve locally stored traffic information, including current and forecasted traffic information, road and weather conditions, traffic incident information, information on diversions and alternate routes, closures, and special traffic restrictions (lane/shoulder use, weight restrictions, width restrictions, HOV requirements), and the definition of the road network itself.
  4. The center shall distribute traffic data to maintenance and construction centers, transit centers, emergency management centers, and traveler information providers.
TMC Incident Detection
  1. The center shall receive inputs from the Alerting and Advisory System concerning the possibility or occurrence of severe weather, terrorist activity, or other major emergency, including information provided by the Emergency Alert System.
