The Open Source Application Development Portal Adds More Intelligent
Transportation System (ITS) Applications for Download
The <http://itsforge.net/> Open Source Application Development Portal
(OSADP) is a web-based portal that provides access to and supports the
collaboration, development, and use of open-source ITS-related applications.
The OSADP has added a number of new ITS-related applications that are
available free to the public.
The following new applications are now available for download:
1. Dynamic Intermodal Routing Environment for Control and Telematics -
Analysis, Modeling and Simulation (DIRECTView-AMS) is a visualization
application designed to visualize the performance measures generated during
simulations using DIRECT software with options to turn on and off scenarios.
This tool can be used for evaluating dynamic mobility applications and
active transportation and demand management strategies, applications, and
2. Intelligent Network Flow Optimization Analysis, Modeling, and
Simulation (AMS) consists of three different applications used in the San
Mateo, California, AMS test bed effort-queue warning, speed harmonization,
and cooperative adaptive cruise control. These cross-functional applications
were modeled together and used simulation inputs (sensor and connected
vehicle data) to generate vehicle-specific commands and desired speed
3. Connected and Automated Speed Harmonization software analyzes
real-time traffic conditions to calculate and communicate speed commands for
connected and automated vehicles (CAVs), with the overall goal of
harmonizing traffic flow. This application includes software to run on a
server that simulates a traffic management center (TMC) to collect the data
needed to perform a speed control algorithm and communicate results with
CAVs; on-board speed control software for CAVs to enable two-way
communication with the TMC; and an on-board Human Machine Interface to
display information on current speed, commanded speed, confidence in the
commanded speed, and the status of surrounding CAVs to the CAV driver.
The U.S. Department of Transportation's Intelligent Transportation Systems
Joint Program Office (ITS JPO) <http://www.its.dot.gov/> funds the OSADP to
help facilitate the advancement of research, development, planning, testing,
and deployment of connected vehicle and traveler-related applications and
ITS. The OSADP features source code, software, applications, and resources
(e.g., documentation, licenses, data) to support the use or further
development of these ITS-related applications.
Public agencies, service providers, researchers, application developers, and
others are invited to visit the OSADP at http://itsforge.net
