Architecture Flow Definitions

alert notification  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Notification of a major emergency such as a natural or man–made disaster, civil emergency, or child abduction for distribution to the public. The flow identifies the alert originator, the nature of the emergency, the geographic area affected by the emergency, the effective time period, and information and instructions necessary for the public to respond to the alert. This flow may also identify specific information that should not be released to the public.

alert status  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Information indicating the current status of the emergency alert including identification of the traveler and driver information systems that are being used to provide the alert.

evacuation information  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Evacuation instructions and information including evacuation zones, evacuation times, and reentry times.

incident information for public  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Report of current desensitized incident information prepared for public dissemination.

road network environmental situation data  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Aggregated environmental situation data collected from vehicles and other sources for the road network. Aggregated information would include measured air temperature, exterior light status, wiper status, sun sensor status, rain sensor status, traction control status, ALB status, and other collected vehicle system status and sensor information for the region.

road weather advisories  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Segment–specific weather and road conditions including real–time advisories of deteriorating road and weather conditions, medium–term advisories for the next 212 hours, and long–term advisories more than 12 hours into the future. The advisories may include advisories that are issued by the RSE based on locally collected environmental data (e.g., an ice on bridge advisory).

transportation system status  (Existing)  Applicable ITS Standards

Current status and condition of transportation infrastructure (e.g., tunnels, bridges, interchanges, TMC offices, maintenance facilities). In case of disaster or major incident, this flow provides an assessment of damage sustained by the surface transportation system including location and extent of the damage, estimate of remaining capacity and necessary restrictions, and time frame for repair and recovery.
