San Antonio Regional ITS Architecture
The San Antonio Regional ITS Architecture is a roadmap
for transportation systems integration in the TxDOT San Antonio District
over the next 20 years. The San Antonio Regional ITS Architecture has been
developed through a cooperative effort by the region's transportation
agencies, covering all surface transportation modes in the Region.
The architecture is an important tool that can be used by:• Planning agencies to incorporate integration opportunities and operational needs into the transportation planning process;
• Operating and implementing agencies to recognize and implement transportation integration opportunities in the Region; and
• Other organizations and individuals that use the transportation system in the Region.
The architecture provides an overarching framework that spans all of these organizations and individual transportation projects. Using the architecture, each transportation project can be viewed as an element of the overall transportation system, providing visibility into the relationship between individual transportation projects and ways to cost-effectively build an integrated transportation system over time.
Time Horizon and Services
The San Antonio Regional ITS Architecture has a time horizon of 20 years with particular focus on those systems and interfaces that are likely to be implemented in the next five years. The architecture covers the broad spectrum of Intelligent Transportation Systems, including Traffic Management, Emergency Management, Maintenance and Construction Management, Public Transportation Management, Commercial Vehicle Operations, and Archived Data Management.
Elements in the architecture are classified as either “existing” or “planned.” Elements classified as “existing” are those whose interface design is complete, regardless of whether the actual element or interface is implemented. Elements classified as “planned” are those whose interfaces have not yet been designed.
About this Web Site
The purpose of the San Antonio Regional ITS Architecture web site is to organize the details of the ITS architecture into a form that is more readily accessible to stakeholders. It will provide a method for stakeholders to access the ITS architecture information in order to encourage use of the San Antonio Regional ITS Architecture in both transportation planning and project implementation. In addition, this web site will be useful in gathering stakeholder feedback. The menu bar at the left provides access to the stakeholders, the transportation systems in the Region (the "Inventory"), the transportation services that will be provided, transportation-related ITS functions that have been selected for the Region, and the existing and planned interfaces in the Region.
The majority of this web site was generated directly from a Turbo Architecture database that documents the ITS architecture for the San Antonio Region. The source database in Microsoft Access format is also available for download.
