Architecture Flow Definitions

incident information  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Notification of existence of incident and expected severity, location, time and nature of incident. As additional information is gathered and the incident evolves, updated incident information is provided. Incidents include any event that impacts transportation system operation ranging from routine incidents (e.g., disabled vehicle at the side of the road) through large-scale natural or human-caused disasters that involve loss of life, injuries, extensive property damage, and multi-jurisdictional response. This also includes special events, closures, and other planned events that may impact the transportation system.

incident report  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Report of an identified incident including incident location, type, severity and other information necessary to initiate an appropriate incident response.

incident response coordination  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Incident response procedures and current incident response status that are shared between allied response agencies to support a coordinated response to incidents. This flow provides current situation information, including a summary of incident status and its impact on the transportation system and other infrastructure, and current and planned response activities. This flow also coordinates a positive hand off of responsibility for all or part of an incident response between agencies.

remote surveillance control  (Future)  Applicable ITS Standards

The control commands used to remotely operate another center's sensors or surveillance equipment so that roadside surveillance assets can be shared by more than one agency.

threat information  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Threats regarding transportation infrastructure, facilities, or systems detected by a variety of methods (sensors, surveillance, threat analysis of advisories from outside agencies, etc.

threat information coordination  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Sensor, surveillance, and threat data including raw and processed data that is collected by sensor and surveillance equipment located in secure areas.

traffic images  (Future)  Applicable ITS Standards

High fidelity, real-time traffic images suitable for surveillance monitoring by the operator or for use in machine vision applications.
