Systemwide Challenges To Intelligent Transportation Systems Deployment: An Analysis Of The Central Florida Experience
The Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA) established the Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems program. Now known as the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Program, great strides have been made in developing the technology necessary to deploy ITS in urban and rural areas nationwide. Much of what now exists, however, has been developed in a piecemeal fashion. Even though more fully integrated systems such as those supported by the Model Deployment Initiative (MDI) have been created, many jurisdictions face significant challenges and barriers to implementing ITS. This review highlights the major aspects of ITS deployment, briefly defining its major components. A general analysis of barriers that must be overcome before ITS integration can occur is then presented. The Central Florida experience is assessed as an example of a system that has begun to implement ITS components but faces many challenges before it is fully deployed.
