1.1. Congestion

1.1.1. summary The urban agglomeration of Cairo, designated as the Greater Cairo Metropolitan Area (GCMA), is the largest urban area in Egypt, Africa and the Middle East and amongst the most populous metropolises of the world. In 2006, its population reached 17 million people spread across the governorates of Cairo, Giza and Qalyobiya and a number of new cities. traffic congestion remains a serious problem in the GCMA with substantial adverse effects on travel time vehicle operation costs air quality public health business enviroment business operation study area GCMA 6th of october 15th of may 10th of ramadan el-obour badr trafic varialbility causes Among the numerous causes of travel time variability, traffic influencing events are major contributors. The most notable event type is vehicle breakdowns, which occur at a daily rate that is substantially higher than other traffic influencing events along all surveyed routes. It was also observed that higher frequencies of accidents, security checks and breakdowns occurred more on urban primary highways compared to the urban primary arterial routes. The analysis also reveals the substantial occurrence of both random microbus stops and random edestrian crossings on most surveyed routes. qualitative assesment The network-wide qualitative assessment was performed through a consultative workshop involving a panel of experts. Through a structured approach known as Nominal Group Technique (NGT), a list of 35 causes of traffic congestion in the GCMA was compiled. The causes of traffic congestion in the GCMA were classified into “operational” and “strategic”. Through the NGT, the panel of experts ranked the operational causes by degree of importance as follows: traffic management and control, design features of the road network, law observance and enforcement, awareness of road etiquette and manners, parking supply and behavior, traffic demand related factors, traffic influencing events andwork zones. Congestion costs direct costs quantitative

4.4.2. USA Vehicle infra-structure integration The most important new program in the U.S. is called “Vehicle-Infrastructure Integration.” The objective of this program is to create an integrated, intercommunicating surface transportation system. The system will use wireless communications, primarily DSRC (Dedicated Short Range Communication) to link the infrastructure and its managers with vehicles and their drivers. It will gather and share information about the transportation system to help improve the performance of the infrastructure, vehicles, and drivers. This effort currently includes U.S. DOT, state transportation departments, and auto manufacturers. 511 project traffic info, weather, ---

4.4.3. japan VICS ETC Japan’s emphasis on ETC deployment has mainly been to reduce congestion at toll barriers, with less emphasis on improving the efficiency and reliability of collection. Deployment of ETC was relatively late in Japan due to its insistence on having a nationally interoperable system. However, this was undoubtedly a good long-term approach. Japan is encouraging the spread of ETC by discounting electronically collected tolls and by subsidizing the purchase of ETC transponders (making their cost less than US $50). Between May 2003 and May 2004, the number of ETC transponders in service in Japan tripled from 1 million to 3 million, and, as of May 2004, nearly 20% of tolls were being paid electronically. DSRC Dedicated Short-Range Communications (DSRC), which is used for ETC, is also being deployed for use with VICS. The intention is to use this communications infrastructure as a basis for multiple other ITS applications.

4.4.4. Developing Countries All three regions have introduced basic traffic signal systems, traffic surveillance systems using CCTV, and traveler information systems based on variable message signs (VMS). As expected, systems that provide a high rate of return on investment have the greatest likelihood of being introduced. These include electronic toll collection and fare payment systems, commercial vehicle tracking systems, and busmanagement systems.

Breakthroughs may occur by putting together cross-functional teams to tackle old issues PRACTICE 8: Road Design and Maintenance Management by Private Companies

8.1. system architecture

8.1.1. A very important part of the system architecture is the identification and description of the interfaces between major ITS components. These interfaces allow the major components of an overall intelligent transportation system to communicate with one another and to work together. Many important ITS standards are written to make these interfaces consistent

8.1.2. Defines •The user services that ITS systems and applications are expected to perform. •The entities where these functions exist. •Information flows and data flows that connect functions and entities

8.1.3. user services User Services User services describe the activities that ITS systems and applications perform or support. Typical user services include providing traveler information, managing traffic, electronically collecting tolls, helping drivers perform better (especially in emergency situations), responding to traffic incidents, managing public and private vehicle fleets, etc.

8.2. characteristics of large system

8.2.1. ITS as a whole is too large and complex to install all at once even in the wealthiest and most technical advanced countries. In most countries, including both developed and developing countries, the right approach is to introduce ITS gradually and in stages, focusing first on the parts of ITS that provide the greatest value in proportion to cost.

8.2.2. •Compatibility •Expandability •Interoperability •Integration •Standardization

8.3. standard Architectures

8.3.1. In addition, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) includes a working group on ITS architecture (WG1) in its technical committee on ITS (TC204).

8.3.2. ISO is good

8.4. for developing countries

8.4.1. steps •Define the user services to be provided by the ITS •Define the processes (activities and functions) required to provide the user services (logical architecture) •Define the physical entities (subsystems and terminators) that make up an ITS. •Define the architecture flows that connect the subsystems and terminators (physical architecture)
