Microcomputers in Traffic Operations and Safety: Implementation Lessons for Small Agencies

by Edward C. Sullivan, Univ of California, Berkeley, CA, USA,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Microcomputer Applications in Transportation II


This study develops and demonstrates microcomputer software for highway safety and traffic operations which meets the needs of small transportation and public works agencies. The study also addresses training and other technology transfer requirements for successful widespread implementation of such software. The software product of the study is a package called the 'Berkeley Traffic System (BTS). ' Two local public works agencies in the San Francisco Bay Area agreed to field-test BTS during its development. The technology transfer-related findings of the study are based on their experiences. This paper summarizes the activities and findings of the study and contains an analysis of implementation requirements for the newly developed software.
