Abstract
We propose to determine what outputs from the SSAJ measurement system would be suitable for traffic control applications, to determine what the "real time" needs and accuracies are for measurements of signature, speed, acceleration, and jerk (SSAJ), to integrate the output of our IST-222 Standard Signature Output Card with and Advanced Transportation Contorller (ATC) and finally to demonstrate prototype software and hardware embodying a simplified version of a functional SSAJ measurement system. We will examine ways for the SSAJ measurement system to communicate with the ATC via the serial communications bus, ATC Ethernet, and the NTCIP 1211 protocol, and we will supplement the Application Programmer's Interface (API) of the Real Time Linux Operating System (RTLOS) of the ATC as needed to integrate the plural outputs of our advanced inductive signature vehicle detector(s) into the data stream that is available for advanced real time traffic logic-based applications running on the ATC.
