AMPA Regional ITS Architecture Update


(Printable Version)

The Regional ITS Architecture provides a starting point for project definition. It provides an overall framework that shows how anticipated projects will integrate with each other and with existing systems. This page lists all the ITS projects that have been mapped to the regional ITS architecture.

Short term projects are scheduled for the next 5 years. Medium term projects are scheduled for between 5 - 10 years. Long term projects are scheduled for more than 10 years.

NMDOT CV Restricted Lane Warning Planned Long The Connected Vehicle Restricted Lane Warnings application provides the connected vehicle with restriction information about the travel lanes, such as if the lane is restricted to high occupancy vehicles (HOV), transit, or public safety vehicles only or has defined eco-lane criteria. A connected vehicle can use this information to determine if the vehicle is in a in a lane that has lane restrictions.

The speed recommendations can be regulatory (e.g. variable speed limits) or advisory. The purpose of speed harmonization is to change traffic speed on links that approach areas of traffic congestion, bottlenecks, incidents, special events, and other conditions that affect flow.
NMDOT CV Spot Weather Impact Warning Planned Long The Spot Weather Impact Warning (SWIW) Connected Vehicle application will alert drivers to unsafe conditions or road closure at specific points on the downstream roadway as a result of weather-related impacts, which include, but are not limited to high winds, flood conditions, ice, or fog.
