The Southwest Florida Regional ITS Architecture is a roadmap for transportation systems integration in Southwest Florida over the next 20 years. The Southwest Florida Regional ITS Architecture has been developed through a cooperative effort by the region's transportation agencies, covering all modes. This regional ITS architecture was developed to satisfy the FHWA Rule 940 requirements, as well as the FTA policy directives, on ITS Architectures. This draft regional ITS architecture was developed from the existing ITS architecture and interviews gathered from stakeholders. This draft regional ITS architecture takes into account input from a one-day stakeholder meeting, held on October 9, 2014. The presentation slides from this workshop are available by selecting "Resources" on top, then "Project Documents".
The Statewide and Regional ITS Architectures represent a shared vision of how each agencies' systems will work together in the future, sharing information and resources to provide a safer, more efficient, and more effective transportation system for travellers in the State of Florida.
Time Horizon and Services
The Statewide and Regional ITS Architectures have a time horizon of up to twenty years with particular focus on those transportation elements likely to be implemented in the next five years. The ITS architecture covers the broad spectrum of Intelligent Transportation Systems, including Traffic Management, Transit Management, Traveler Information, Maintenance and Construction, Emergency Management, and Archived Data Management over this time horizon.
About this Web Site
The purpose of the ITS Architecture web site is to encourage use of the Florida Statewide, and Florida DOT District Regional ITS architectures and to gather feedback so that it is used and continues to reflect the intelligent transportation system vision for the state and each district. The menu bar above provides access to the stakeholders, the transportation systems in the region (the "Inventory"), the transportation services that will be provided, transportation-related functions that are envisioned, and the existing and planned interfaces in the region.
The majority of this web site was generated directly from a Turbo Architecture database which defines the architecture for the Southwest Florida Regional ITS Architecture. The source database in Microsoft Access format is available for download by selecting "Resources" on top, then "Project Documents".
