ITS Element: MTO Compass

Description: COMPASS is a high-tech Freeway Traffic Management System developed by the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) to respond to traffic congestion problems on urban freeways. COMPASS helps reduce traffic congestion and increase safety by: allowing for the prompt detection and removal of freeway incidents and vehicle breakdowns; providing accurate and timely freeway incident and delay information to motorists; and, effectively managing peak rush hour traffic flow through innovative traffic control devices. In the NITTEC architecture, the COMPASS system is an adjacent transportation system.
